Craig Walsh set up Creative Films when he was a teenager. He was exposed to the power of film from an early age. Inspired by his father and grandfather who were both in the industry. Video and capturing moments in time was; and still is his, passion.
He worked as a cameraman for TVNZ for 7 years and had a vision of one day to create and tell stories. Beautiful stories with meaning, substance and emotion. Creative Video was born in 1988. Now, with new technology, editing and cinematic techniques, welcome to Creative Films.
His talent lies in capturing the beauty and intimacy of those special moments that many couples miss on their wedding day. Craig's effervescent personality and passion for what he does has him held in high regard with the couples he films for and his wedding industry peers. Craig often films weddings for couples who then recommend him to their extended family and friends.
Emma Wright is our Wedding Manager and she loves weddings.
Meeting the couples and going through the package options with them is one of the most enjoyable parts of her job. “I love it when our couples leave after their initial meeting, happy and excited about having their day filmed.” She makes sure that all our shoots go exactly to plan, so you can relax and enjoy your special day.
“I will look after you from initial enquiry through to delivering the final edit, answering any questions you have along the way, there aren’t many questions we don’t know the answers to!”
