Erins style is uniquely sophisticated and bold. She captured still intimate moments and bursting dance moves all while making everyone feel at ease. Erin is a master communicator; she brings focus, reassurance and clarity throughout what can be a crazy process.
Ron is gentle, easy going, and a subtle genius. His has a one of a kind creative eye, and can make the mundane evocative and epic. He captured small special moments in innovative ways. The final product still blows us away.
Their creativity inspired and energised us - creating moments that were unique and yet so totally us. To make people feel comfortable enough to allow real emotions to come through effortlessly and authentically is a real gift, especially in the midst of the chaos of a wedding.
Their stylistic decisions enhance the beauty of the moment in a subtle, romantic and sophisticated fashion. In a nutshell Acorn Photography & Cinema will make you feel the real beauty of the moments they capture; even the moments where you are ugly crying will look elegant and purposeful.
We are so glad that we met them before they get too famous. Our family and friends consistently say that these two were the best investment we made.

Asking Erin to be our wedding photographer was the greatest decision we could have ever made. From the moment we told her we were engaged, she sent us wee gifts in the mail (all the way to Wellington!) & constantly made us so excited for our wedding day. On the day, Erin was so professional & with Hollie & Ron, they were a force to be reckoned with. I had so many of our guests tell me how amazing the Acorn team were, both on the day and reflecting back. Erin continues to be one of our most treasured friends and she captured the true essence of our day and delivered some of the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen. The video Ron did was like something I have never seen before, it was stunning. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts x

Many people asked us why did we pick New Zealand as our destination elopement, well actually we did not pick NZ first, but we picked Acorn first after I saw their beautiful wedding photos on Pinterest, I viewed nearly a hundred portfolio around the world but Acorn is the first that we contacted, their photograph is the kind of style that I like. I just knew it, and there is no need to look for others for comparison, everything felt right since then. Erin, the photographer answered all our emails promptly, about 60+ emails from Feb to Nov. I like her even more when I saw her in person, she is friendly, adorable and accommodating. I received the full collection of our elopement recently and they are amazing and brought us back good memories. The only regret is not book Ron for the cinematography, he came along on our post wedding shoot early morning and he is so cool in person, he shot amazing drone photos and gave us a mini video clip which is so so beautiful. It would have been nice to have him shoot our video.

After Googling Wedding Photographers in Dunedin going through many, I stumbled across Acorn Photography. As soon as I saw Erin's beautiful work I knew we had to have her for our wedding. Meeting with Erin, she was just so warm and lovely to begin with and throughout the process she was amazing! She was wonderful on our wedding day and a joy to be around. She made us so comfortable on our bridal shoot ( Even though the wind was quite strong) She is so confident in what she does and we felt so comfortable having her photograph us. When we received the photos we were absolutely elated at how they turned out. They are absolutely beautiful and she captured the true essence of us as a couple as well as that of our two families. We would 100% recommend Acorn Photography and Cinema to anyone! You won't be disappointed. Erin is so so talented and such a gem of a person. Thank you so much Erin! hugs from Jen and Stevo xxxooo
