Rose and Travis, a beachfront summer wedding

I first met Travis and Rose at Travis’ brother’s wedding, almost four years ago when I was just starting out as a wedding photographer. It was really awesome to catch up with Justin and Sam, the bride and groom from that wedding, and an honour to photograph Travis and Rose’s wedding.  The location was absolutely stunning – a beautiful beachfront resort in the Hokianga in Northland, golden sand, a grand tree to wed under, and endless beautiful sunshine.  The perfect location for summer people.

Cindy and Zack’s Clifftop Sandspit wedding

When Cindy contacted me just a couple of weeks before their wedding I had no chance to meet Cindy or Zack before their wedding, but they and their family could not have made me feel more immediately welcome.  A beautiful setting, stunning bride, and a small intimate wedding made this a special day where I found myself trying to grab all the special loveliness whenever I could with my camera.

Bodene and Andrew

What a sweet, funny, natural couple these guys are.  It was such a great day on the surprisingly very beautiful Unitec Campus gardens with lovely sunshine, family and heaps of laughs. And even running from a T-Rex.

Amy and Kyron Engagement

With an unsettled spring we had already needed to postpone the engagement session once, and the weather was supposed to be a bit unsettled this day.  The weather was a bit wild and windy but we just went with it and didn’t let it dampen anyone’s spirits and got some lovely West Coast type shots on an East Coast beach.

Sylvie and Charlie get married

So after a lot of wedding shows and preparing myself for life as a full time professional, it was time to get back to the core of what I do.  This is a teaser of just the start of the day and my first wedding of this season.  I am very excited to see what other gems I uncover as I edit the images. I almost forgot – my oh my, that dress was amazing!

Mark and Kylie

After what seems like months and months of rain and mud in Auckland, the weather started to gradually improve.  And what better day to take some shots in your car workshop and then head to the park for some heirloom tea?

Holly and Grigor

Winter wedding, West Coast of Auckland, up on cliffs – got to be crazy, right? Well the weather broke just in time to shine some beautiful light on this small, relaxed, simple wedding near Bethell’s Beach.
