Stories | Wedding & Portrait Photographer Auckland

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

rebecca & ben | kumeu valley estate wedding


I remember when I first met with Rebecca and Ben over a drink one evening, and I asked what their vision was for their wedding. The words rustic and elegant were used - juxtaposition right? Yet they pulled it off. I absolutely loved the ceremony backdrop that I know Rebecca worked hard on with the talented Rosie fromRose Tinted Flowers.

My favourite part of the day? At the end of our bridal portrait session the bridal party hit the tennis courts for a quick match!
