Best Wellington Wedding Photographer

Ashleigh and Tyler finally engaged

Fun fact - Ashleigh and Tyler booked me in for their wedding before they actually were engaged. Fun fact number two, it’s not the first time that’s happened. Fun fact number 3, Ashleigh and Tyler are now engaged. Final fun fact, al fresco is derived from italian, which usually used to describe dining outside.

Looking forward to the wedding team, can’t wait!

Jessica and Ben's spring wedding at Sudbury

Jessica and Ben and them confetti showers at Sudbury

What. A. Day.

This past weekend I got to document the one and only Ben from Sink or Surface wedding to his beautiful bride Jessica. Was great being able to share in such a big occasion for such a good friend and to hang with just a bunch of beautiful souled and happy people.

Here’s a few snaps from their big day at the always stunning Sudbury on the Wellington coast.

Ellen and Marks backyard wedding featured over at New Zealand Weddings Magazine

Mark proposed following a weekend stay with friends in Taupo. I thought we were on our way home, but he drove in the other direction – he’d secretly booked a beautiful bed and breakfast villa! Our puppy, Joe, was with us, so we took him for a bush walk and came across a beautiful secluded boat ramp where Mark got down on one knee! The proposal was absolutely the surprise of my life! read more

Wai and Cherry at Church Road Winery

Double Happy, Cherry and Wai at Church Road Winery.

It’s not everyday where I shoot a wedding and I have more people who look like me than not. The big and beautiful chinese wedding of Cherry and Wai at Church Road Winery was a goodie. A couple midday tea ceremonies. Plenty of aunties and uncles with their cameras and phones popping up taking snaps. A slideshow business presentation from the maid of honour, three outfit changes and plenty of smile.

Great day on the tools and thanks to my bud Meredith Lord for coming along to shoot with me.

Find a photographer/videographer that makes you laugh. David Le and Ben (Sink or Surface) were a hilarious duo, and made every formal moment that they captured both hilarious and comfortable for everyone involved - most guests assumed they were friends of ours because the banter was so natural!…read more

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.
