Kia ora! I am Adena, the sole owner and operator of Adena Teka Photography. I established this company in 2019 following three years experience as a professional photographer and the completion of a Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging (Photography and Design).

I believe LIFE IS A DANCE - full of energy, rhythm, freedom and good tunes.

The ocean is the place where I can breathe, be centered and also find adventure. I have recently moved to Ōtautahi - Christchurch from Waiharakeke - Blenheim to live near the ocean and experience the diverse cuisine, concerts and community events that this beautiful city has to offer.

I strive to provide exceptional imagery, quick turn around and can fit easily into any team making life easier for everyone involved. 

Let's advertise your listing or accomodation in the right light and provide some personal imagery for your website or social media content.

A little tip ... LESS IS MORE!
