Do the mahi...and I still can't afford the treats

What more do I enjoy than shooting weddings? Shooting inanimate objects - specifically cars. Really looking forward to my mid life crisis when it comes around so I can shell out some hard earned coin on a sweet set of wheels...until then I'll just take photos of them and drive around with my kids in the people mover.

Here's our early morning shoot of the Audi RS6 for Roberston Prestige - this bad boy is for sale, if you got the coin, maybe give them a yell, Yeeeow!

Let's make awesome happen in the Pacific Islands!

So I'm pretty blessed to do what I do, and for that I'm truly grateful! 

With that comes opportunities to head over to the Pacific Islands to document wedding goodness! So, if you, your sister or your friend are thinking of having a destination wedding either in Rarotonga or Fiji, hola at ya boy!

I'll be in Raro early May 2018 and Fiji early July 2018 - so that means for you, no travel fees! If you're interested, give me a buzz and lets make awesome happen!

Alisha + Ty // First look complete

My last winter wedding for the season took me out to the wop wops in Kimbolton. Alisha planned everything with military precision - and we had to as we smashed in so much pre wedding and with a huge bridal party! But, everyone was as calm as a cucumber and the weather played nice!

Amazing view, amazing day and amazing people - my cuppa tea son!

These two are farmers down south which meant we didn't meet until the wedding day itself, but as with all my couples, these guys were legends.

Checkout a small preview of Erin + Harry's wedding at the awesomely rustic Lacewood!
