Hi, I'm Dave, this is me, standing in the rain, getting wet


I love weddings. Documenting your story and the moments that mean something to you. I want you to look back at your photos and see real memories and not just a staged pretty picture.

With the way I shoot, I try to keep things as authentic as possible, trying not to stage too much by letting the day flow naturally. My photographs are a mixture of documentary journalism and a little bit of creative portraiture for the lovey dovey stuff. I won't get you to do some weird crouching tiger hidden dragon group pose, make you do some cheesy dip or set up an awkward fake drinks cheers. Take a look at my weddings, they’re authentic, loose and fun; I’m not a perfectionist, so if you’re chilled like me, come say hi!

I'm all about letting things happen organically, keeping it authentic, all about them real feels!

My work has also been featured on various wedding sites like Together Journal, Wild Hearts, Junebug Weddings, New Zealand Bride & Groom and New Zealand Wedding Magazine, just to throw a few out there - self high five!



I’m all about having fun in life,
and that’s how I like to work.
If it’s not fun, then what’s the point?



I’m based in good old Palmerston North but travel all over New Zealand. I'm even partial to the odd destination wedding, so let's make awesome happen!

PS You won't find me behind a stall at any wedding expo! (I'm the cage free organic type) So the best way to Contact me is either through here, good old Facebook/Instagram or better yet, down at one of our many local cafes for a cuppa and slice!

I do a lot of things, but you’ve come here because you’re after a photographer.



Wedding Packages

My wedding commissions are full of goodness! with different options and packages to suit;
- From elopements to full day wedding packages*
- Hi-Res files on custom wooden USB (400-700 edited images)
- Wooden keepsake box with a selection of hardcopy 6x4 art prints.
Albums, framed prints, 2nd shooters and other add-ons are also available, contact me for info.



For the full wedding day commissions I start the day during the morning prep, carry on to the walk up the aisle and right up to the party celebrations. Which normally means for me, anywhere between 6 to 12 hours for any given wedding. Once I'm done, I make sure I post up a photo or three from your wedding while you wait for your completed package and I also compile a selection of your images on my website (between 50-150 images) to tell your wedding story, which you are free to share with friends and family.
Completed packages during peak season (Sep-April) take between 8-12 weeks.

I'm based in the Manawatu but am available for weddings throughout New Zealand.

Also, if you're thinking of going abroad, I love destination weddings, small intimate elopements and a bit of adventure, so get in contact for more special travel pricing options and more detailed info.
