Hawke's Bay, NZ.

I turned up to Hawkes Bay on the Thursday. It was dark, pouring with rain and did not look like clearing. The type of weather you don’t want to get out of bed for. The forecast for Friday was blue skies and sun but I didn’t believe it! I got myself mentally prepared for a wet and windy wedding day. But I am glad the weather is not determined by my faith because Friday was amazing. The total opposite to the day before. It was so cool to photograph these two in the beautiful Hawke’s Bay and I am so stoked that it was a day that fully let us appreciate the Hawkes Bay in all its glory.

Bali, Indonesia.

In Bali you can pretty much do what you like when it comes to taking photos. So you can get as close as you like to the cliff face for the epic wide shot.

Mudbrick, Waiheke Island, NZ.

There are windy days and then there is what we had on Waiheke Island on Saturday. It was blowing a gale. But it didn’t stop these two awesome people from having the best day ever. They were just amped on getting married and being together. It’s what it’s all about.

It was up to Auckland this weekend to photograph Mel and Jo. A straight up awesome day. A madly in love couple, with friends and family that partied like it was the end of days.

Waihi Beach, NZ

After a full month of travelling around I came back home to photograph the wedding of these two beautiful people. It was the icing on the cake of one busy but fun month.
