“We’ve been hoarding naked and semi-naked cake images over the last few months because, well, who doesn’t love a bit of cake spam! Our Insta feeds are filled with amazing creations from some of our fave cake makers on the daily so we thought why not contribute to the sugar overload with this roundup”
I get to shoot at a bunch of locations all over New Zealand, but it’s choice when I have a new hidden gem to explore in my home town. Matt + Christina married at the beautiful curated grounds of Greenhaugh Gardens just outside of Palmerston North. We had a lot of aliexpress, a couple of confetti cannons, a few tears, some nice eye brows and oh a smoke bomb or three.
A quick frame of these two babes getting all smokey in the forest…..

Must admit I love backyard weddings. Georgie + Glenn's was one of those. We dodge the rain most of the day, but even a little moistness couldn't dampen the smiles off these cheeseburgers. Beautiful colour palettes, babes for days and one classic original from Lloyd, click the link below for the full preview!!

I've been looking forward to this wedding ever since Sam + Ruth got in contact with me back in June last year. The reason being they were having it at the "Chapel in Aranui" easily the best venue in Palmy (it's a cow shed, sooooo good!)
Supported by super talented, super lovely and super generous people, this wedding was the beeees kneeeeees! I went a bit overboard and have thrown up a whole heap of sneaky's, enjoy!!!
Travelled to the small country town of Turakina for Codi + Shelley's summer wedding. He spotted her working on the dairy farm next door and got a closer look with his rifle scope, sent one of his boys over to get her number and the rest is history.
Another year comes to an end and I'm cranking up for another huge summer of weddings. I'm super blessed to do what I do and I love doing it.
2017 was a year of meeting more awesome couples, working along side some super talented and creative vendors plus expanding, adapting and exploring more of my own creative work.
38 weddings, 76 awesome loved up married couples, meet over 4000 guests, drove nearly 15,000km, 3 stuck cars, shit load of late nights and nearly cried twice.
Here's some of my favourite images from this year (and a couple of sneaky ones from the end of last year). Thank you to everyone who trusted me to document their day and looking forward to more awesomeness for 2018.
