Another wedding another weekend away to hang with beautiful goodhearted people. I hung out with Brooke + Cam down in Wellington for their super chilled wedding at Glenview Country Gadrens. The Hutt put on a stunner, check out a few frames from this weekend!
Here's you'll find my latest work, the love stories, my adventures and everything else I do.
I flew down to good old Christchurch for the wedding of Amy + Joel at the swoon worthy venue that is Cossars Wineshed. Canterbury turned on the sunshine, they had DONUTS!!! As their wedding cake and there was plenty of tears + laughter during the speeches.
Was hard to only show a couple, so here is a heap!!! Can't wait to share more!!
I kicked off March with a super cruisey sweet Friday wedding at Caccia Birch for an old high school friend Rochelle and her lover Stewart. Was such a sweet day with their 3 beautiful kids heavily involved, plenty of food and treats all day, plenty of refreshments and the most polite and sweetest burnout I've ever seen!. If only all weddings were this chilled! Here's a handful of picture goodness from their wedding!

The last week of February and the last back to back wedding until December. I spent the day with these babes, and their wickedly lovely and talented friends and family.
They married in the tiniest church in Aokautere and held the party celebrations in the most amazingly setup on the backyard of their beautiful property in the outskirts of Ashhurst.
Can't wait to share more from this beautiful wedding.
Surrounded and supported by their super talented and creative friends and family, from a lawyer come amazing cake maker, to a super talented musician who also takes great photos with pine cones. Check out the full wedding below!!

February has been a whirlwind of weddings for me, finishing up with Michelle + Mark's wedding held at the always beautiful Caroline's Creative Interiors. These guys, keeping it slick and classy with that black and white. More to come!
Another weekend of back to backs kept me in Palmy for Leah + John's windy wedding at Orlando Country.
One sweet mercedes, a bunch of awesome people and shirts off on the dancefloor - that's what I call a bloody good wedding, few sweet pics from Leah + John's Lakeside wedding!
February good old February, the busiest time of my season. Friday took me all the Manawatu countryside for Helene + Paul's wedding held the always pristine Caroline Creative Interiors in Aokautere.
Beautiful details, fried chicken and old two pies - here's a few images from their beautiful wedding!
The Hawke's Bay turned it on with the weather for Courtney + Johnny's wedding held at Sileni Estate Winery.

In the hustle and bustle of wedding season I squeezed in a sweet little maternity shoot for Hayley who flew over from Australia.
After a good month of scorching hot weather, we were greeted with one of the coldest nights of the summer, here's a few quick frames from our little sunset shoot.
I've been looking forward to this wedding ever since Sam + Ruth got in contact with me back in June last year. The reason being they were having it at the "Chapel in Aranui" easily the best venue in Palmy (it's a cow shed, sooooo good!)
Supported by super talented, super lovely and super generous people, this wedding was the beeees kneeeeees! I went a bit overboard and have thrown up a whole heap of sneaky's, enjoy!!!
Amanda + Hayden kicked off my 2018 wedding season. Pohangina Valley treated us to some scorching hot summer sun, buckets and buckets of rain and a whole bunch of thunder and lightning.
Check out the full preview below!
Was another scorcher of a day out at Makoura Lodge for the summer wedding of Chelsea + Phil. A lot of tape, plenty of sweat and a whole lot of banter - my type of wedding.
Can wait to share more piccies from this wedding, but for now here is one.
Travelled to the small country town of Turakina for Codi + Shelley's summer wedding. He spotted her working on the dairy farm next door and got a closer look with his rifle scope, sent one of his boys over to get her number and the rest is history.
Nina + Kevin has to be the sweetest couple I've ever meet. So kind, so friendly and just super lovely, the perfect match for each really!
They held their wedding at the classy Lacewood Estate just on the outskirts of Martinborough. It was a scorcher of a day, full of plenty of laughs, a bit of salsa dancing and plenty of good food for the soul.
Nina + Kevin, hope you enjoy this little preview below!
Emma + Will // The Milk Station
Emma + Will married at the St Mary's church in Otaki and held their ceremony at the always elegant Milk Station. Good times, morning beach runs and a super excited mother of the bride.
After a self imposed 2 week summer break with the fambam I was back at it again for the wedding of Amanda + Hayden.
They married in the sweet little corner of Pohangina Valley, surround by their closest friends and family, and even old Jimmy Thunder said hello during the ceremony before it pissed down buckets!!!
Here's a couple quick frames from their sweet wedding!
I've been waiting to blog this wedding since before I even shot it! First of all, just take a look at Gillian + Michael, not only do they look gorgeous on the outside, they are also beautiful on the inside. Secondly, that view was errrmeegerd (I was sweating like a pig on a spit after that 30min hike up the hill!) Thirdly, Gillian + Michael chose to do a ‘first look’ and it was such an incredible feeling being able to capture it for them. And lastly, the day was perfectly capped off with the most beautiful sunset.
Hawkes Bay put on a stunner for these two, it was just us three, the Celebrant Wendy Morrison and her husband Doug (legend, carrier of all things and second witness - I was the other!).

I was lucky enough to be a part of these two babes intimate little wedding held at sunset on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful east coast beaches of Aotearoa.
We hiked up the hill for 30 minutes, I took some snaps, we had a sunset picnic with bubbly and in between it all I shot a little film.
