Erica & Reese / Dunedin Couples Session

Erica & Reese are an amazing couple. Visiting our shores all the way from Boston via a cruise ship stopping in Port Chalmers, we decided to grab a Dunedin couples session while they stayed. Hoping for some cloud to soften the summer brightness, we were greeted with beautiful, moody weather and even a little rain right at the end. Venturing around the Dunedin hills and waterfront, this is some of what we captured...

Emily & Theo / Queenstown Elopement

The simplicity, the idea of doing life together and in the case of Emily & Theo’s Queenstown elopement, the adventure. From both NZ and the UK, these two came together in one of the beautiful places in the world to connect. Having shared their vows earlier in private, we ventured about the mountains later in the day as the sun began to set.

Victoria & Mark / Queenstown Wedding

When remotely organising a Queenstown wedding, there are so many variables — with logistics and weather all playing a role either with or against your day. Victoria & Mark scored it pretty much perfect on their spring day, warm weather, sun out and an awesome atmosphere among their family and friends. We captured a couple of firsts as well, one being the first time I’ve caught a groom actually tripping over while swinging his brand new wife around on a mountain top, and the other with total confidence climbing a tree in a wedding dress. I swear my couples are getting more and more adventurous! Absolutely loved your day guys, here’s how it went…

Olga & Tom / Lake Tekapo Pre Wedding

Olga & Tom’s Lake Tekapo pre wedding session (actually a post wedding session) was incredible. Recent snow on the mountains, the sun was out and temps were warming up a little from winter. Having recently returned home from their wedding in Russia, we lined up a nice weather window and headed to Lake Tekapo and the surrounding areas. They even bought their fur babies along for the last part of the shoot. Super connected souls, beautiful setting — couldn’t ask for more.

Alyce & Ben / Wanaka Wedding

Not going to lie, I love all the couples that engage with me, and Alyce & Ben’s Wanaka Wedding was no exception. These two bought some fresh country air to their wedding, complete with a stunning dress, flat caps and two pair of New Zealand’s legendary Red Bands. The wedding ceremony took place at Wanaka’s Holy Family Catholic church, reception celebrations at The Venue, separated with a helicopter ride and mountain top photos. An incredible story I felt hugely grateful to be part of.

Imogen & Logan / Wanaka Wedding

Love can be as strong as you want it to be. Imogen & Logan proved this to be true during the lead up to their Wanaka wedding. Studying and working across the globe and organising a wedding is no easy task, but through a supportive family and pure dedication, these two knocked it out of the park! Criffel Station were hosts to the special occasion, there were heart-felt vows, beautiful sunshine and helicopters — all a photographer could ever wish for! Aaron from Amico Films in Sydney even jumped in at super short notice to create an incredible film on the day. Absolutely epic!

Jamie & Andrew / Cromwell Wedding

Jamie & Andrew’s Cromwell wedding was even more beautiful than I anticipated. Having known these two for a while beforehand made fitting in with a camera to capture their wedding story absolutely seamless. Preparations begun on their family vineyard with the surrounding Pisa Range glistening in the warm sun. There was an abundance of laughter, good vibes and all round an incredible day shared by two incredible people — stoked to be able to be part of it!

Villy & Brandon / Wanaka Honeymoon Session

Having the chance to photograph Villy & Brandon’s Wanaka honeymoon session was one of the key shoots that made me really appreciate this place to call home. For this connection session, we took upon the adventure of an incredible helicopter flight to Roy’s Peak, followed by the serene lakeside goodness amongst the pines and waters edge. Two awesome relaxed souls visiting from Canada for their honeymoon, switching from the depths of winter to heat of our Central Otago summer. With poor weather on their wedding day back home, these guys had the perfect excuse to line up some sunshine, which we had the freedom to do. Awesome people. Awesome session.

Lex & Rodney / Moke Lake Couples Session

Lex & Rodney’s Moke Lake couples session was unforgettable. Lex being the wedding photographer from Maine USA certainly had more confidence in front of the camera than I ever would! The connection and radiance of these guys had was evident, as well as their tendency for fun and laughter. Surrounded by the setting sun across Moke Lake in Queenstown, we ventured from the lake side up into the mountains. Connection session awesomeness…

Jane & Matt / Taranaki Wedding

Heading out of town is always exciting, particularly when it’s to a place I haven’t been to for a long time. Jane & Matt’s Taranaki wedding was one I’d been looking forward to not only for the destination, but more so getting to know the personalities of these two legends well before pointing a camera their way. Having a strong background in the fire service, the ceremony at Tairoa Lodge was dressed for the occasion, and the North Island summer heat certainly didn’t hold back! A good post-ceremony trek up Mt Taranaki served for a great adventure to document which the full bridal party embraced. An incredible day with an incredible party to follow — definitely a day to remember.

Ange & Cam / Millbrook Resort Wedding

Ange & Cam held absolutely beautiful Queenstown wedding at Millbrook Resort. Along with many of their guests travelling over from Australia, they were treated to a cool rainy day with a few Plan B's taking place. Nothing phased these two though, in fact I think they embraced the natural turns of their day more, evident in their persistent smiles.

Coryn & Caleb / Queenstown Wedding

When winter hits Central Otago, getting out and amongst the elements is only for the adventurous. Coryn & Caleb were just that. They held their Queenstown wedding straight after a good snowfall and the temperatures barely got over 3ºC. Their intimate ceremony was tucked away in the historic Thurlby Domain, followed by a venture about the Crown Range with a signature Queenstown sunset, then warming up again at Postmasters in Arrowtown. An incredible day all round!

Georgie & David / Canterbury High Country Wedding

Growing up in the country. Something I’ll always be grateful for. Georgie & David’s Canterbury high country wedding took me right back there. Turn off into the Rakaia Gorge, then keep driving until you think you’ve gone too far… then drive a little further. These two come are probably the most down to earth couple I’ve met so far, and not afraid to get their hands dirty (or the wedding dress!) Held at their family home, there was everything we needed right at our fingertips; a decent 4WD track to some spectacular views over the Southern Alps, a working woodshed converted into a cosy reception area, and a well supplied whisky bar. Thanks to Rino Sadha for shooting with me on this one.

Kat & Rich / Hanmer Springs Wedding

Mountains, helicopters, and a few enjoyable drinks… possibly one of the best combos for a wedding. Kat & Rich nailed it for their Hanmer Springs wedding, held at the Forest Campground. Being an ex local, I thought I knew most of the good spots, until we flew to the mountain top. Still hands down one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand. Pair that with these two amazingly relaxed and honest humans who know how to party, and you’ve got what a wedding is really about.

Josie & Mick / Leeston Wedding

Josie & Mick’s Leeston wedding absolutely oozed a welcoming, homestyle vibe. Held out at the Leeston based venue Memorys, it made the perfect set up to hold the ceremony under the trees and the festivities under the stars. We took a roadtrip to Gebbie’s Pass, where we were welcomed with beautiful views east and west. Relaxed and real, this wedding was all about the right things.

Mackenzie & Chris / Sunshine Coast Wedding

Having the opportunity to head over to Australia for Mackenzie & Chris’ Sunshine Coast wedding was an amazing experience. I had an introduction to some amazing families uniting from the UK and Australia, some awesome wedding vendors and not to mention the incredible, down to earth couple themselves. Held at the beautiful rustic setting of Yandina Station, we had a blast venturing about the venue and stunning surrounds, with Queensland’s super early sunset started the party well in advance. Here’s a snippet of their wedding story…
