And holy hecka it’s ridiculous that January is already over! February is a super hectic month for me with 7 weddings and it doesn’t slow down until June, so bare with me, I’m going to be going hundy, if I take a little longer to respond to your email or ya DM’s it’s probably because I’m asleep or hanging with my kids.

Can’t wait for more of the goodness stuff for 2019, yeeeeeow!!!!!!

Real Wedding Feature | Christchurch Weddings

Joel and I met in Edinburgh Scotland when we were both travelling and were staying at the same hostel, Joel had actually jumped on the wrong bus from London and was supposed to be living in Glasgow but decided to stay in Edinburgh when I arrived a few months later. It was love at first sight! I still remember what he was wearing when I first laid eyes on him…

New Zealand Wedding Photographer David Le Design & Photography

Jumped on that charity bandwagon once again. This time I hung out with the awesome peeps from Civil Defence and got involved in their charity calendar that they’ll be releasing at the end of the year. I took my shot for the calendar plus a few more from the evening out with these super heroes.

Looking forward to seeing what the other awesome photographers create and give a high 5 next time you see one of these volunteer cats doing their thing making our lives safer.

A new way of printing your wedding photos

With the way the world is these days people seem to think of printing their photos as an after thought. Some leaving it off their packages as they’l do it themselves, others because of the cost of albums. So I’ve been beavering away trying to look at alternatives for my sweet couples (and other couples!). And here is what I’ve come up with - Weddings Magazines! I know a tonne of my couples look through countless magazines like Together Journal, Hello May and New Zealand Wedding Magazine for inspiration and ideas for their big day, so why not finish it off with your very own personalised mag!?

The initial cost of these badboys are third the price of a traditional wedding album, and getting additional copies are even cheaper!

So if you’re wanting to finally get your images in a magazine, or haven’t got around to making your own album, hit me up for pricing and let’s make awesome happen!

That Chicken and Waffles kind of love...

A great way to meet up with me is to go on a little tiki tour and have some engagement photos done. So that is what Siobhan and Michael did, we talked about the best places to eat chicken and waffles, where we’ve travelled around the world and they practice cuddling in front of the camera!

Can’t wait for the wedding kids, you two are so damn cute together!

Checkout more images from the shoot in the link below!

Wharerata is a beautiful spot which I love heading down to for photos. Great spaces all within walking distance. And that’s what we did when Asa and Amy brought their families along for an extended family shoot. It was a tonne of fun and these kids know how to work the camera haha, soooo good!

Stills + Motion // 2019 Toyota Hilux SR5

A few weeks back I got the opportunity to collaborate with Toyota New Zealand and Sink or Surface to create some imagery for the new 2019 Toyota Hilux SR5. We took the truck on a little adventure off the beaten track of New Zealand.

Take a look at the film by Sink or Surface and checkout the link below for the stills. Looking forward to creating more content like this in future, watch this space!

Red Rocks Wellington Engagement

Had my first mission out to Red Rocks Reserve on the bottom coast of Wellington on the weekend with Sarah-Jan, Ben and their two puppies.

As per typical Wellington weather it blew a gale but the sun was out and we managed not to be attacked by any fur seals while venturing out on to the rocks (they are camo as F).

Here’s few quick frames from their sweet little Saturday evening engagement shoot, looking forward to their wedding at Tarureka next year, yeeeow!
