Ryan + Charlotte wedding at Poppies Martinborough

Winter weddings in New Zealand. You get dreamy blue hour light after sunset, the skies and clear and the full woollen suits actually make sense to wear. Back at it again with another Stills + Motion collab with Sink or Surface.

Ryan + Charlotte, looking dapper, married in the tiny church that is Burnside and partied the night away at the beautiful Poppies in Martinborough.

So many goodies to share, so little time…check back for full blog post

Mustard Folk | Events, Weddings and Furniture goods

With shooting weddings you get to cross paths with so many amazingly talented vendors and creatives. And whenever Kylie from Mustard Folk is involved I just know the wedding is going to be amazing styled, chic and super beautiful!

So recently, I popped into her store in little old Rongotea to help photograph her current and new hire equipment for her new website which is releasing soon, here’s a few snaps of some of the goods!

For all you brides who have got Mustard Folk involved this wedding season and beyond, I can’t wait to see what Kylie does!

From Welly with love, Palmy engagement session

Snuck in a Sunday sesh of beers and engagement photos with Alana and Rob. We jumped fences, got our kicks covered in mud and caught the last of the winter evening light.

Looking forward to your guys wedding in the summer at Orlando Country where hopefully it will be less cold and muddy, yeeeoooww!!!

New Zealand Winter wedding goodness at Makoura Lodge

They already had a Foote in the door, so they made it a Shaw thing at Makoura Lodge.

I kicked back into my New Zealand wedding season with the winter wedding of Victoria and James out at the always good Makoura Lodge.

Plenty of rain, a tonne of dark clouds but a whole heap of morale boosted the spirits and smiles pumping all day long. If this the first wedding back from my little break then I can’t wait to get stuck in for the rest of the season.

Here’s a few pics of their beautiful wedding.

PS rule no.1 it’s your wedding day, if you want to have or do something, then do it, don’t let anybody talk you out of it!!!

A little Shadow Edition HSV Chevrolet Camaro courtesy of Robertson Holden

Wedding season is just a week away so I’m starting to wrap up the last bits of commercial work I’ve been keeping busy with over the winter.

Was another early start to take the 2020 HSV Chevrolet Camaro Shadow Edition and HSV Silverado out on a wet and cold winters morning. I love being up to mix up a couple of passions and create something a little different to my weddings, but I can’t wait to hang with all my couples this upcoming season and creating more awesome, yeeeoowww!!!

Polly + Rhys

Rhys and I met online (before Tinder) and from our very first date he had me in fits of laughter. A few wines later, I found myself piggy backed along the Wellington waterfront by this gorgeous, incredibly funny guy, I’d met just hours before. The rest they say is history…see the full feature
