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.

Ellie and Tom's wedding on Waiheke Island, Auckland was certainly something special. Having come from their home in Hong Kong followed by many international guests, they held half the day at Ellie's parents property right on the beach, and finished off at the incredible Casita Miro.

Full of personal touches - Ellie and the girls got ready in the original 20s property behind the now main house which was full of so much history and charm from her grandparents - an amazing floral arch and a drop dead gorgeous backdrop, this was wedding perfection. 

Ellie & Tom oozed happiness and love all day long and it was an absolute breeze to photograph their portraits. We were also lucky to be treated to some beautiful golden light filtering through the olive trees at Casita Miro during sunset. Hope you enjoy the highlights of their day.
