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

Rachel & Lawrence's Raglan Wedding was everything you would picture an intimate wedding to be. Small group of their very closest family and friends, on a clifftop overlooking the wild surf of Ngarunui Beach followed by a very cosy dinner at a local restaurant.

Whilst small and intimate, lots of thought went into the little details from the handmade ceremony arch to the beautifully decorated private room for dinner. Lawrence's daughter led the walk down the aisle with their much loved family dog and Rachel followed close by with her lovely Mum and the pair were married by Lawrence's sister. These two exude such warmth and friendliness (Rachel's smile is one of those contagious ones!) and I loved hanging out with them on their special day. x
