Wedding & Portrait Photographer Christchurch, New Zealand

photographer wedding portrait professional Christchurch HANDMADE PHOTOGRAPHY Stephanie Defregger_4804

What is your name?

Stephanie – just call me Steph

So, what makes you different to other photographers?

The same that makes you different to other clients – being your self… that is unique. I could tell you that I love to give presents to you right from the start or that I donate a part of your payments straight to a good cause, like the womens shelter in Christchurch or I play wedding games at weddings I shoot. But hey, I do not book photography sessions for myself, so I have actually no idea if other photographers do that too! Which would be awesome by the way.

What kind of photographs will I get?

Have a look at the stories – they are all relaxed, fun & real. I don’t do staging. I do real stories. For real people.

What is on your bucket list?

Staying for 3 months at our 110 year old family hut in the North Italian Alps and family & friends from all over the world come and visit.

What do you love to do in your spare time?

Biking, hiking, skiing, wild camping – any adventures that preferably involve a hill, mountain or forest.

What is the scariest thing you have ever done?

Letting people or things go and trusting that it is ok

What is your favourite food?


Apart from that?

Another chocolate

Are you married? Do you have kids?

Single mum. 3 kids. 1 dog.

Most stupid thing you did?

At eighteen… driving into a 2.2m high hotel car park garage with a bike on the roof rack. BANG – my mum’s bike was looking like a pretzel. The hotel apologised, put up an actual height sign and covered all the costs. I think my mum is still missing her favourite bike though…

Best kept secret?

Still best kept

Talk soon.
