About Shine

Shine Studios was established about 10 years ago by Lauretta and Blair Quax and has consistently and passionately provided the best quality creative wedding imagery since.

Over this time Shine developed from Goode Photography & Design (a bit of a play/pun on Lauretta’s maiden name) into one of Auckland’s top multi award winning wedding photography studios. After Lauretta and Blair’s marriage in 2007 new name and a fresh start was required, Shine was reborn.

In 2011 we jumped ship for the jewel that is Waiheke Island looking for the elusive work/life balance that would allow us to start a new family while continuing to look after our extended ‘Shine Family’.

We provide a range of top quality wedding photography and cinematography (HD Video) services and albums for those who recognise and value the best. The Shine Studios team prefer to work on Waiheke but do accept off-island national and international enquiries, please ask us.
