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.

Amj and Saj have been together forever, so there was a strong sense of family at their wedding. This wasn’t two new families coming together, they’ve been family for a long time. The girls started the day at Peppers Clearwater Resort, in the most gorgeous two-storey apartment overlooking the water. Rain was forecast, and despite […]
A few weeks back I met Sulin and Luke at their inner-city apartment and we jumped in the car for a roadie. The spot they took me to for their engagement shoot was incredible. Look at it! The sunset was golden, the company was wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoyed being educated on world music ft. […]
Do your photos before the ceremony I’m a huge advocate for this, and I’ve bullet-pointed three of the reasons why this is the best choice you’ll make. When you and your partner see each other for the first time, it’s just the two of you. You can chat, admire each other, ask about how the […]
Liv and Sam (and their tribe of amazing people) organised their wedding in three weeks so 1-year-old Benji could be there. He’s got to be the most handsome best man you’ve ever seen. Scroll to the bottom for the most precious first dances, and a party to remember! There was champagne, rain, happy dances, tears, […]
The essence of summer, in an absolutely blissful Christchurch family photo shoot. Temperatures through the roof, an ocean full of swimmers late into the night, families running through the waves soaked in sunshine and sand, and a contagious happiness. Taylor’s Mistake in Christchurch is a stunner of a spot and makes for some gorgeous photos […]
They say that when you meet the right person, you just know. So it’s no surprise Tash and Sam met, dated, and got married in about a year. These two are clearly made for each other. I spent their wedding day getting to know so much more about them both, and I marvelled at how […]
A country hall, a wonderful couple, two adorable kids and a kickass party = the recipe for the best wedding day! The day started off very relaxed, with the girls cracking open a bottle of bubbles and the lads having a beer on the deck. After a bit of a gag from the boys during […]
A few years back, Lauren and Andy got in touch with me about their wedding photography. Since then, it’s been the biggest privilege to document their lives, and watch their family grow. Plato family, thanks for the continued faith you place in me to capture the precious moments. I am so bloody excited to meet […]
Melissa and Jono are two of the kindest, most generous, fun-loving people you’ll find. Together they make a pretty formidable team, and a wonderful couple. And what a special day they had in rural Southland. Mr and Mrs Dennison walked out of their ceremony to the sound of Jono’s precious father’s bagpipes, and the special […]
It’s always a particular honour to photograph another photographer and their family. Rosé is the face behind Rose Wilks Photography – Poppet, and you can find her beautiful work on Facebook. I had the pleasure of updating the Mahia family’s photos one spring (this weather though) evening in Southland.
