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.

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.

Jamie & Andrew / Lake Pukaki Pre Wedding

If you know the Lake Pukaki and Lake Tekapo areas, you’ll know why the region is a haven for couples to have their photos taken. Jamie & Andrew’s Lake Pukaki pre wedding session was awesome. Hailing all the way from Christchurch, we met mid way to begin our session at Lake Tekapo, moving south toward the fields of Lupins and finally dancing in the last sunlight in the presence of Mount Cook. Too good!

Leah & James / Arthurs Pass Pre Wedding

Arthurs Pass is an incredible Location, no matter where in the world you’re from. Leah & James asked me along to capture their Arthurs Pass pre wedding session and mother nature threw everything at us in the village. Traveling 10 minutes east of the divide, we were welcomed with some epic light and cloud formations. James, originally from the area helped guide us into the right places — bringing a beautiful, calm connection throughout the whole session.

Felicity & Andrew / Lake Tekapo Elopement

So often we're shown big weddings as being the dream, however more of the couples I work with now are going very low key or simply eloping. I love it. It takes real courage. Felicity & Andrew's Lake Tekapo Elopement was awesome. Their ceremony was held in the nearby Raincliff church, intimate and close. We then trekked across the alps toward Tekapo for a picnic, a trumpet serenade, and more photos. With temperatures just reaching 5ºc, these guys were absolute champs and an absolute blast to photograph. Thanks to Erin Waldron for shooting with me.

Clare & Hayden / Ohau Lodge Wedding

Some people just click. They work together beautifully as a team and make you feel welcome, like part of the crew. Clare & Hayden are just those people. Organising their Ohau Lodge wedding from the North Island didn't seem to cause any troubles at all, though Lake Ohau known as 'The Place of Wind' certainly lived up to its name. Raw and beautiful landscapes are abundant around here, as was the evening festivities. One of my longest days behind the camera, and one of my most memorable.
