Hannah and Tom’s Wedding

Hi Everyone,

Here some highlights of Hannah and Tom’s beautiful wedding.

The ceremony took place at one of my favourite churches in Wellington, The Sacred Heart Cathedral.

The reception and photo shoot took place at the picturesque setting of Ohariu Farm. This venue does not only shine with its rolling hills and amazing evening sun but also offers an increasingly beautiful reception venue. Thanks for having us Jude!

Hannah and Tom have been together for around 10 years already and have now tied the knot to celebrate their love for each other with their closest family and friends. It was a magical day for everyone!

To the topic bridesmaids, I have to say Hannah had the sweetest and most helpful bunch. We were joking on the day how she must have had the criteria of “You’ve got to be blonde and look like you could be my sister!” when she made her choice in that. These girls were just great together which is something I wanted to capture for them..

Enjoy their wedding day stills:

Audrey’s Family

Hi Everyone,

I photographed little Audrey a few weeks ago at her home. We had a lot of fun especially when we let their cheese-eating dogs lose!








Snuggle up with your sunshine on dark and rainy days like these!

Hi Everyone,

It’s been days and days of rain and I feel that it’s really starting to affect people’s moods!

So I took on the wee mission of digging into my stacks of gorgeous shots that may lift your spirits a bit..

I found this magical image of Meghana with her partner that reminded me that rainy days can also be a fantastic days!

Days to stay in together, put the fire on, cook something warming and do the dance of life and romance together. The world can take a spin without you for a day, I’m sure!

To all those beautiful couples out there. Enjoy and have a happy rainy Thursday!



Glorious Wednesday from Baby Polly

wish all mum’s of beautiful babies a wonderful day with lots of cuddles!




Zoe and Matthew’s Wedding

Hi Everyone

How are you? It’s been a busy few weeks wrapping up the wedding season and exhibiting at The Wellington Wedding Show last Sunday. It was great seeing many of you there, thanks for coming by!

The nicest end to the day was when I won the “Best Stand competition for the Capture Category (Photographers/Videographers)” which was great feedback from the industry…

Today I’d like to share Zoe and Matthew’s wedding with you.

The energy and harmony between them is really contagious and passionate which is something you will see throughout their wedding story. I loved every minute of photographing them as many things unfolded so naturally throughout the day..

Their ceremony was at the Magpie lawn at the Otari Wilton’s Bush. It’s a magical spot for a garden ceremony.

So let’s start with the shoes (or the getting ready..) Midnight blue hot heels indeed!!
