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. It was just that much easier photographing a professional comedians wedding, Jesse […]

Man this job takes me to some of the coolest places. Did you know that Nasby has the biggest curling rink in the Southern Hemisphere? Naseby also pretty much has no mobile signal or 3G which was bizarre. So being in Nasby gave me a real good chance to chill out and to soak in […]

I had the amazing opportunity to photograph a wedding on Rottnest Island which is off the coast of Western Australia. A seriously unique place without comparison. The beauty of this place only emphasised by the passion the couple had for this destination. The location. The couple. I am sold on Rottnest Island.

Dan and Relle’s wedding was awesome! Best friends getting married with a cool love story that just makes you feel warm and fuzzy. Dan needs dental work and at the dentist is blown away by the dental assistant. The dental assistant has a policy she won’t date patients. The photos below show that persistence pays. […]

Last year was the first time in my 15 years of doing photography that I officially started entering photographic competitions. For me its taken a lot of courage and a whole lot of pushing through fears to start entering my photography to be judged. I think its a huge fear of all photographers, to put […]

Due to crazy work commitments these two had to spend the year apart before their wedding day. Their love story pretty amazing! Watching these two connect on their wedding day was special and it reminded me that relationships and love is the most important thing in the world.

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 […]
