What to Expect

At Laura Ridley, we believe “Photography” has MAGICAL abilities. A single photograph has the power to take us back in time and experience a memory like it was yesterday. 

Memories that at the time seem insignificant, but grow more priceless as each and every day passes.

Our mission is to share the magic of Photography with as many Families as possible, give you an AMAZING experience and capture the most unforgettable photographs you will ever own.

Our Studios are located at 48 Main Street, Upper Hutt and 90 Princess Street, Palmerston North. They are cute and cosy and full of dresses, clothes, props and pretty things to use in your session! There is plenty of free parking right outside.


We will get to know you, what you are looking for and what you love to help us provide you an amazing experience and create the most unique artwork. We will also go through our session types, artwork options, pricing and answer any questions you may have.


This is where the magic happens! We’ve designed our sessions so they’re fun and stress free so we can capture real, authentic and candid moments. We want you to be you! There will be absolutely no lame posing or awkward moments but we can guarantee lots of laughter, twirling, hugs and kisses. 


See your photos for the first time in a cinematic slideshow presentation. This is where you’ll choose your images and work with our Design Consultant to create gorgeous artwork that best suits your home and budget.

For your convenience, we accept all credit and debit cards and a number of interest free finance options.
