Looking for a professional portrait photographer in Christchurch?


You have definitely arrived at the right place.

My years of experience as a portrait photographer has gifted me numerous opportunities to connect with a wide range of people, young and old, all with unique characters and stories. No two people or families are the same so we don't cookie cut our service or our artworks. Every client deserves a personalised service and to know their images are unique artistic representations of them and their loved ones. We produce award winning images with a consistent high professional photography standard that we take pride in. Just as important is the personal service and the friendly environment that makes working with Maria Buhrkuhl Photography a truly enjoyable and complete experience.



What makes us different from other professional portrait photographers in Christchurch?

As an award winning photographic artist, I offer top quality beautiful imagery in either a studio or location setting of your choice. I work with you to choose the best environment and feel for your portraits, right through to creating stunning artworks ready to showcase in your home with family and friends. We don't leave you with a bunch of digital images you never get around to printing or even looking at. Our service extends to a complete photographic solution of selecting and producing real artworks for your home. We love what we do and our goal is for you to enjoy and adore your artworks everyday. 


What are you waiting for?


There’s no better time for a family portrait.

Whether it’s a little one’s birthday party, a significant gathering, or because you want to celebrate you or your family as they are right now. It’s so easy to procrastinate, and push it down the list of things that are important to get done because life is so busy. Trust me, I know the feeling!

Don’t let celebrating all the good things in your life pass you by….
