Mike + Hailey // Tauranga Wedding, Charlemagne Lodge

Mike and Hailey recently tied the knot down at the amazing Charlemagne Lodge, in Te Puna. I’ve known Mike for quite some time and it was a real privilege to be able to document the marriage of these two, who so obviously share a very special relationship. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t slightly nervous for Mike and Hailey with the weather – we’d just had some of the heaviest and wildest weather of the year which made for a slightly crazy drive down the night before. Thankfully they ended up with pretty much perfect conditions – stoked! Thanks again both for allowing me to capture your day. Peace.

Arlene + Jake // Engagement Session, Auckland Botanic Gardens

Back in the year that was 2016….Jake, Arlene, Max (the fluffy one) and I took a walk through the Auckland Botanic Gardens the weekend before Christmas. This is their local park so I was given the grand tour while having a barrel of laughs taking photos of them all. It was a super relaxed session despite the blazing sun and heat! Naturals such as these will have a BLAST on their wedding day – it is going to be fantastic 🙂

Alice and Doug // Auckland Wedding at St Mary’s Chapel and Five Knots

A couple of weeks back I had the pleasure of photographing Doug and Alice’s marriage at the beautiful St Mary’s Chapel in Auckland. These two were so lucky with the weather! It had been raining earlier in the week and the forecast kept changing from sun to rain to sun…and luckily it settled on fine weather with just some pesky clouds rolling in come the evening. After the ceremony we boosted it down to Westhaven Marina under Rotary Power for some photos. The westie in me was well- stoked at that point to be hitching a ride 🙂 The reception was held at Five Knots on Tamaki Drive, and when I left they were both dancing the night away to some sweet tunes.

South Island Adventure

One of the great things about having good friends that live all over the country is that you have a good excuse to do some travelling. Our really good friends Tom and Arapera were getting married on her family farm in Oamaru, so it was a great reason to take a few extra days off work and make a proper holiday of it. We headed down to Christchurch (henceforth referred to as Chch) and took the morning to take in the changes to the city. WOW. The have cleaned things up a lot but you can really feel the devastation…entire city blocks just ‘blank’ waiting for new development. It was great to see that progress was being made. The Cathedral… well i’ll just let you see the picture and leave it at that shall I?!
