We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love - Dr Seuss

Amaya + Joshua, bringing a little more love into this world.

Getting amongst it at the Linton Army Mess

Ben + Kelsi, anything to get out of PT, sneaking out of the mess…

Another week of dodgy Manawatu weather cleared with a scorcher of a day for Kelsi + Ben’s wedding held in Palmerston North. Chilled vibes, some great banter and a little beverage sharing with another wedding group we bumped into during photos made for a chur day!

Here’s a little frame of us sneaking out at the very last moments at sunset, if you’ve got a spare couple minutes on your wedding day at sunset, you’re crazy not to make the most of it!

I love weddings!

I’ve had a busy off season with commercial work, charity and the odd wedding, but I’m pumped for the upcoming summer where I get to smash out some more awesome. Hanging with choice couples, working along side some super talented vendors and travelling around to some sweet locations around New Zealand.

If you’re wedding is coming up, I’m looking forward to being a part of your big day! And if you’re looking at getting married or eloping or have some choice creative event you want covered, give me a buzz, let’s make awesome! Yeeeeeeow!

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.

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!

That sweet Palmy rain at Wharerata

Oh my lordy, when Palmy turns it on it really turns it on. It pissed buckets on Saturday but lucky for Sarah + Nav, they planned their wedding inside at the beautiful Wharerata hidden away in the gardens of Massey University.

Chilled, styley and fun loving peeps - more people like Sarah + Nav pretty please x

Oh and here's a quick gazillion multiple exposure wizardry because everyone likes a little Harry Potter magic .... (disclaimer, I have never watched or read Harry Potter...my bad)

Sarah + Andrew // The Milk Station

The Milk Station in Otaki has to be up there with one of my most favourite venues in New Zealand, it's a place you don't need to go off site for photos or really do anything to it and it still just looks so good. Then you add in the styling of Sarah + Andrew and it takes the place to whole new level of perfect.

Beautiful little details, gorgeous colours and an amazing set up. Here's a few frames from their wedding from this weekend, soooo good, can't wait to share more!

Rochelle + Stewart and all the treats!!

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!

Leonie + Mark and their dog Bruce

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.
