Mikalah + Rory at Makoura Lodge

I headed back out to the back blocks of the Manawatu to Makoura Lodge in Apiti, New Zealand for the wedding of Mikalah and Rory. But instead of taking photos, I switched my tools over and shot a little film.

Make a cuppa, grab some snacks and sit back and check out their sweet wedding day at Makoura Lodge!

The rays strike back at Wharerata

February is my peak of the season, and this year is no different with the next 3 weeks of double headers. The first of the double this weekend took me back to Wharerata were Nicky + Nevin held the most relaxed and chilled wedding day. A little bit of Star Wars, a tonne of Tip top Trumpets and a gorgeous sunset, was a treat.

Here’s a few frames from their little beaut of a day.

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…

Momento Pro Wedding Album

Testing out the Momento Pro flush mount wedding albums, this beauty in Butterscotch leather.

I love a good wedding album, and whenever my couples decide to get one with their wedding packages, I get pretty excited to create them.

Recently I’ve been looking into different options and alternatives and I decided to check out what Momento Pro could offer. I saw them on display at the NZIPP IRIS photoshop awards and knew of a few photographers who had been using them, they looked good so I decided to check them out! From the get go the service was sweet and they were able to answer any questions I had during the whole ordering process.

I went and created a Flush Mount Leather album, choosing Butterscotch as the cover option (they have vegan friendly options like linen available too!). From placing my order it took just under a month for it to arrive.

What I was pleasantly surprised with when first opening the album was the 100% Cotton rag rigid paper that they used to print the images on to. The soft textured feel gave a premium feel and made the album and print look really good. Another bonus is each page is sprayed with a fine coat of Hahnemühle archival spray to ensure the print lasts.

If you’re thinking of getting or adding an album to your wedding packages, I’d love to chat and I’m looking forward to producing a few more of these badboys!
