I photograph weddings, engagements, families, maternity, newborns and commercial. My style is natural and organic, focusing on telling a story.

So excited to start sharing my weddings from this past season! With a new arrival due in our family in the next few weeks I may be slow to blog but Ill definitely share more, slowly but surely!

First up is Victoria and Mike’s wedding from back in December. Based in the Philippines, they flew home to exchange nuptials inside the stunning St Marks Church in Remuera. Victoria took everyones breath away in her lace Rue de Seine gown that just screamed elegance! We then headed up One Tree Hill to capture the newly married couple along with their delightful little boy Thomas. I loved every minute photographing this gorgeous family unit – they radiate so much love and happiness for each other. It was an absolute delight to document their special day.
