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.

Liz and Andrew share mutual friends with me and I was delighted when they got in touch about their wedding. They have a gorgeous little boy and he was a big part of the day, getting ready alongside his Mummy. Liz and Andrew were married at the amazing Bracu, part of the Simunovich Olive Estate. Surrounded by hills of olive groves, they exchanged vows in front of their family and friends. The Estate screams romance and is the perfect place for photos so following the ceremony we wandered amongst the groves and along dirt roads with the bridal party before heading back to the pavilion to join the guests for the reception. A perfect day.
