Spent the weekend catching up with some of my wedding couples, a few work meetings, plenty of coffees and refuelling the soul. In amongst the hectic little schedule, we snuck in a little engagement shoot for Jess + Ben. Wellington turned on the weather, heaps of wind and plenty of cold, here’s a few snaps of these babes!!!
These two babes travel down from Whanganui for a little winter engagement shoot. Good times and good yarns while we dodged the rain. Here’s a few snaps of Samantha and Ben’s little sesh, looking forward to the wedding in the summer!!
Another Friday banger to get you ready for the weekend. Sharni + Michael's wedding which is featured in the latest Wild Heartsmagazine is now up on their blog too. Get your antihistamines ready, because its full of floral goodness!!!
At the start of this month I was lucky enough to get my hands to the keys of the new Audi NZ A1 Sportsback.
Who would of thought this small town boy would be getting paid to take photos and drive around a brand new car. Thanks to Robertson Prestige for making it all happen, looking forward to the next one, gotta have it! Yeeeow!
With the wedding industry you get to experience a big party every weekend pretty 10 months of the year. And along with that you get the opportunity to work with some amazing creatives and vendors, one of them being Jacinda from Pretty Little Details. She makes the most amazing cakes and every wedding she has been involved in has turned to gold.
So it was a nice surprise to find a box of cake goodness she sent, we smashed them back they were so good!! So if you’re on the look out for an amazing cake for your wedding day, look no further than Pretty Little Details!!!
Winter, when you get to rug up warm, wear cardigans and snuggle in front of the fire. And that’s what Meredith and Braeden did for their winter winter at Tarureka Estate. So relaxed, so much chill and a lot of singing and rapping by the ladies made for a stellar day in the Wairarapa.
Here’s a few frames from their sweet day under the winter sun, so good!

Was back on the rark in the back blocks of Whanganui country out in the wops in Upopkongoaro. Lindsay and the lads were the most kiwi blokey bloke male NZ farmers you’d ever come across (Tux wonder dogs + Speights + Stubbies and Redbands type) and Harriet was an amazingly beautiful bride, that Kenneth Wilson dress was woweee material.
Wangaz put on a stunner of a day, we explored the family farm and plenty of bottles of liquor were consumed. Here’s a few snaps from this stunning of a rural New Zealand wedding.
Stone the flamin’ crows.
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!
Polly and Rhys, two bloody fine looking specimens married with their finest friends and whanau they could physically squeeze in. Summer was well and truly gone, but these two where smokin’ hot. Confetti cannons, smoke bombs and a frenchie - so good! Can’t wait to share more of these beauties soon, ka kite!

March has beeeeen hectic, a couple weddings that ran over a hour late, some torrential rain and bad stuff in the world. Sooooo was awesome to finally be able to settle back into normal transmission. Aleisha and Hugo’s beach side wedding was held at Orui Station in the back blocks of Riversdale Beach about a hours drive from Masterton.
Stunningly styled, from the hand made tables, to the family tradition of building the archway to the funky surprise denim jacket from Aleisha’s maid of honour.
Check out a few snaps from this beautiful New Zealand wedding!
