A quick frame from Dee + Karl's inner city wedding at the Boatshed in Wellington this weekend. Super chilled vibes, no bridal party, and canapés for days.
Here's Dee, who arrived to the first look location before Karl and I, you beauty!
The summer wedding season kicks off again for me this weekend, back down to the always awesome Tarureka Estate in Featherston. Before that, I squeezed in another car shoot for Roberston Prestige of the 2017 Audi SQ7, all yours for a cool $200k - chump change as they say in super rich richie land.
Prepare for wedding goodness, time to take it up a notch, vroom vroom!
Yeah in between all the photo stuff I do design (well I do a tiny selection of design work, where I can fit it in and if it's a project which tickles my fancy).
I recently completed the website redesign and refresh for Gregory Draughting Ltd. Out with the old and in with the new.
Fresh, sleek and simple. Click on the link below to check out in the flesh (well on a screen, you know what I mean).
I wrapped up my winter wedding season with Alisha + Ty's wedding held out in the back blocks of Kimbolton.
Check out a small preview in the link below.

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!
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!
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 good looking roosters had a small and intimate wedding at the beautiful Tarureka Estate on a cold and brisk Autumn day. We parked on a State Highway, jumped some fences and stood under the stars for mass effect.

I had the opportunity to go along to the recent launch of the new Audi Q5 and SQ5 at Robertson Prestige.
Exotic premium vehicles, craft beers and good food. A few images from this intimate event.
