A little Windy Wellington engagement

Wellington turning the windy weather on for Jess + Ben

Spent the weekend catching up with some of my wedding couples, a few work meetings, plenty of coffees and refuelling the soul. In amongst the hectic little schedule, we snuck in a little engagement shoot for Jess + Ben. Wellington turned on the weather, heaps of wind and plenty of cold, here’s a few snaps of these babes!!!

Got the keys to a new Audi for the week, say what!?!

The new Audi A1 Sportsback that I was lucky enough to have for the week

At the start of this month I was lucky enough to get my hands to the keys of the new Audi NZ A1 Sportsback.

Who would of thought this small town boy would be getting paid to take photos and drive around a brand new car. Thanks to Robertson Prestige for making it all happen, looking forward to the next one, gotta have it! Yeeeow!

Hawke's Bay Collective | Waipatiki

When talented vendors and Waipatiki Beach combine = love

The thing about weddings is you get to meet some wickedly talented creatives.

When Toni, the creative genius behind Magdalen Hill, contacted me and ask if I could be part of this shoot Josie was creating, I couldn’t say no, plus The Pretty Little Details were supplying the cake and donuts and I got to have rbuch and hang out with the talent which is Meredith Lord.

This shoot took the team just a little over a week to set up, but I knew it would come out perfectly even with so little time because I was working with some of the best this industry has to offer.
It always amazes me the talent that these people I work with have and so it was nice to spend the afternoon with these guys and find the time to collaborate..

Here’s our shoot at Waipatiki beach just north of Napier in the Hawke’s Bay, a great spot with some amazing views and some beautiful evening light. Looking forward to working with this talented bunch in the upcoming season!

“We have actually been best friends since we were 15 years old. We both grew up in Wellington with the same friends group, and created a loving supportive friendship we both grew to rely on over the years. It wasn’t until we both lived in London did we decide to take a leap of faith and risk our friendship to see if there was something “more” between us…”
