On the tenth of February, Hannah and Theo added another chapter to their decade-long love story. Wed on a flawless summer’s day, they tied the knot in Wanaka, a place they held close to their hearts. Hannah was a multi-talented bride: a photographer herself, with impeccable styling skills, she made her own florals and designed a lace piece for her gown.
The day after their wedding, still dressed in their best, took them on an adventure in Mount Aspiring. They tackled the stormy, moody weather and trekked through the hills, across the valley and waded into a waterfall.
Their wedding, from the finer details to the creative shoot, was utterly them. A day that celebrated Hannah and Theo as the perfect pair, undoubtedly made for each other.

A splendid white suit, a beautiful lace dress, and a sunset that couldn’t have been more perfect. There was so much love in the air surrounding Danielle and John’s summer Wellington wedding, celebrated with their closest family and friends. Just like them, the day was gorgeous, authentic and relaxed, but with a good sprinkling of sparkle. It couldn’t have been with a more warm and joyful crowd.
Amongst the dancing, chatter, giggles and pink, we snuck away for the sunset, so Danielle and John could enjoy a few quiet moments together. The backdrop glowed a golden light that is every photographer’s dream: and we were so stoked to have just the right amount of time in it! The happy couple closed down the night with a sparkling exit: such a fun end to an unforgettable day!
Tarapuhi and George were naturals in the water. Tucked amongst the palm trees, the secluded pool was an island oasis which became the setting of our creative shoot. We captured the couple diving, floating, splashing and swimming- spending quality time together and having a laugh along the way. The scene made for some sweet memories and surreal shots of the couple, and we loved that their shoot was an experience that felt ‘normal’, yet special to them. A perfect example doing something you enjoy in your creative shoot, while making it unique to you.
It began as a rainy Friday in Southland, but this didn’t dampen any spirits as the clouds opened up to bring bright skies and a brilliant sunset. The wedding was beautiful, the perfect summer soiree set in a stunning marquee. As day turned to night, the light came on, music was turned up and the dance floor filled with the happy couple and their guests. They left, hand in hand, as husband and wife, to a procession of sparklers and it really was magical.
I was over the moon to shoot one of my favourite couples on their special day: the beautiful, caring, fun, lovely and adventurous, Tom and Jess. Tom, you are an incredible brother. And to Jess, you are gorgeous on the inside and out, and we are so excited to have you in the family.

Beulah and Jeremy celebrated their love in a way that was uniquely, entirely, perfectly them. It started with an idyllic beach ceremony; waves kissing the shore, a soft sea breeze and a dreamy sky. There was a hike to a hidden setting, where the magic of a waterfall met the magic of a marriage. It wasn't easy, but the daring and spirited Beulah and Jeremy were up for it. The adventures continued, with an entrance to their reception that took everyone by surprise, a rocking party, and an epic ‘Drown the Gown’ moment.
I don’t have enough words for how amazing, exciting and totally authentic Beulah and Jeremy’s wedding was. They got caught in the waves, laughed and loved, and danced right into the night with their nearest and dearest. They are the perfect example of making your day truly yours.
Dip your toes into the warm sea, and feel the tropical breeze of this Thailand wedding. Kind, generous, fun-loving and Chelsea and Kirk are an epic couple who are a perfect match.
Chelsea and Kirk, along with their guests, partied under the palm trees, dined on the beach and danced under the night sky. At the end of the night, still dressed in all their finery, they jumped into the pool and straight into their honeymoon.
We didn't want to stop snapping or filming their journey. We had the most incredible time in Thailand, seeing Chelsea and Kirk in their element, celebrating their marriage and just making the most of every moment.
Have a look into Tarapuhi and George’s love story. Adventurous, outgoing, warm, kind, confident, and happiest in each other's arms, Tarapuhi and George are a couple who help each other grow, encourage each other to better, and bring out the best in one another.
Celebrating their heritage and culture, this wedding takes place amongst the flora and fauna of Samoa, shared with their nearest and dearest. Lush island scenes provided a gorgeously green, natural backdrop to the festivities.
The wedding day was full of joy, laughter, song and dance, featuring a special first dance by the bride and groom. The next few days, we took it to the pool, waterfalls, and forest, creating and collecting memories with the couple and their friends.
We had an unforgettable week capturing their wedding and family getaway in Samoa. You could truly feel the love and happiness every second of the day.
When in Thailand, it’s a given that some time is spent at the beach or by the pool. With the sun shining, there’s no better way to cool down than with the water. Chelsea and Kirk tied the knot with a beach wedding, and at the end of the night they spontaneously jumped straight into the pool! The next day, we did it all again. Embracing the ‘Drown the Gown’ movement, the couple dove right in. Chelsea looked ethereal in her dress, with Kirk right by her side. The results are dreamy, beautiful, inspiring pieces that might push you into the water on your wedding day.
