That old saying ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ sure applied to Aimee and Paul’s wedding in Morrinsville. It started with hanging out with the boys at Pauls parents’ farm then zipping over to Aimee’s parents’ place. I love it when people decide to get ready at family homes. There is always so much character […]

Who is not up for a Monday long lunch wedding?! Jesse and Victoria’s wedding was awesome and super fun. Sometimes I feel part of my role as a photographer is that I need to have a repertoire of jokes to get people laughing.

A couple of weeks before we touched down, I kept asking my wife to email our friends who live in India. “Ask them for tips on how to prepare for our entry” I asked her. But as I touched down I realised there was nothing that could prepare me for what I was about to […]

There is always a lot of controversy that surrounds photography awards. I probably think its because art/photography is subjective. And everyone has their opinion. So even to enter awards has its own controversy. At the end of the day I don’t really mind what people think, I enter the awards because I love the process. […]

Sometimes your hobby can take you to some real cool places. Heading to Cali to photograph David & Nancy’s wedding was just magic. On top of it all, the light was just pinging. The wedding was in Malibu and was different, a lot like my hair cuts. We hung out in the morning of the […]

Slow-mo, back-lit fist pumps. Recently, I was blown away to be named NZ Creative Wedding Photographer of the Year. It was such an honour! I realise that winning awards like this can’t be won without having some very good people in your life. I have a SUPER wife and some extremely good quality friends that would take […]
