Yours Truly Photography Studio was started at the end of 2006.  Owned by Guy Hastings who has been a photographer for 15 years.

Having lived in Tauranga since he was five and now having a young family he was dissappointed with what was on offer with most of what we saw having changed little in twenty years. It all looked for set up and boring. For Guy kids was about fun and energy and we wanted our family portraits to show this. With 15 years of photography experience it was decided that the best answer was to do it himself.

So Yours Truly opened to create fun and natural 'not posed' family portraits and have since gone on to photograph couples, expecting mums, family reunions, newly engaged, women wanting to look beautiful, new born babies and lots and lots of pets.

It is been great fun and so satisfying seeing clients rush in to pick up their finished portraits.

It is on the strength of our portrait success that we have also recently launched Yours Truly weddings which are booking up fast for this current summer. Our studio is located on Otumoetai Road Tauranga just a short drive across the bridge from Mount Maunganui. It has been purpose built for us and offers a lovely relaxed environment to meet with and photograph our clients.
