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.

Eri & Jun married at the stunning Mantells in Mt Eden, Auckland on a stunning January day and chose to have their bridal photos before the ceremony with a first look. Having photographed them already for their pre-wedding shoot I knew I was going to enjoy capturing these guys again! 

This was my first experience of a Korean wedding so it was quite special seeing first hand the different traditions prior to and during the ceremony and I just loved the traditional dresses Eri and Jun's mothers wore.

The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and after a toast, we explored Mantells inside and out for a few extra photos. As I left for the evening, the happy couple and their guests were making full use of the photo booth!
