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.

Kezia and Ethan's wedding kicked off my wedding season with a bang! Their Church, adorned with amazing florals, made for a glorious ceremony. I literally had chills when everyone sang How Great Thou Art.

We made our way round Auckland city for bridal portraits, battling the wind and cold! Then onto McHughs on Cheltenham Beach for their reception, again adorned with greenery, proteas and roses. So so beautiful.
