Kia Orana,

I'm Meari!

I am passionate about capturing the essence of island life. Rarotonga, my island home, is a constant source of inspiration.

I seek authentic connection, raw emotion, the laughs, the in-between moments, the real you and me. I want you to feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera, you’re beautiful when you are your most natural self. So let’s get sandy, laugh, and plan our adventure together.

"Working with Meari has been an amazing experience. Her creativity and talent are evident in every aspect of her work. Meari’s attention to detail is unmatched, and she embraces clients' ideas with enthusiasm, bringing them to life. Throughout the entire process, she was warm and showed genuine care, if you're hesitating, don't—Meari is a true artist. Even if you’re camera shy!"

"Meari did my wedding photos at short notice and she was truly amazing. She was early to the venue to set herself up. She even hunted out a rake to even out the sand for us . I found her really warm and friendly with one of those personalities you can just click with. She took amazing photos and captured our special day beautifully. She directed us on different poses which was great. I hadn’t even though of that! Meari’s communication was efficient which was amazing given the limited internet access in Raro. We also received our photos really quickly . 

Thank you again Meari! We are completely in love with our photos and will treasure them forever."

"We had an in-home family portrait session with Meari and she captured us in our element beautifully. Despite the littles ones missing their nap times and feeling grumpy, she showed remarkable patience and a genuine willingness to work with us . So many of the photos were candid and turned out to be breathtaking! We cant wait for the opportunity to collaborate with her again on another family shoot, knowing that she will bring her unique creativity and make it an unforgettable experience once more."
