Welcome to my blog

My blog is a place for me to share my latest shoots, and a place for you to to share in my favourite moments from wonderful weddings.

This shot is from Hannah and Callum's epic nuptials at Walter Peak in Queenstown, complete with a party on board the Earnslaw, the steam ship you see in the background. It was unforgettable.
