I have said it once and I will say it one million times more, How lucky am I to travel to these beautiful places and call it work! When I got an email from Tania about travelling to Te Anau for her wedding to Todd I couldn't be more excited, especially since Todd is a 3rd or 4th cousin of mine. Te Anau is a very special place for these two which made it the perfect place for them to say their vows. Their ceremony was along the lakefront surrounded by loved ones and close friends. Grey clouds rolled in over the mountains behind us but the rain held off. We spent the afternoon exploring places To View More >>

Kylie & Russ where do I even start with these two, when I met them both for the first time we chatted and laughed like old friends, got side tracked from the task at hand and had to keep re focusing on wedding planning. It was fair to say when they left I was so excited to be the gal they asked to capture their day.  Their wedding was on the first weekend of Autumn, after a extremely hot and dry summer here at the top of the south island all our feilds were golden brown and the hills and valleys surrounding Nelson were ablaze from wild fires. These two didnt let it rattle them we just To View More >>

When I first met Nicole and Owen I knew their day would be nothing short of wonderful. Their engagement shoot was full of laughs as we stumbled over boulders at sunset and caught the last of the days light while running away from the incoming tide. After that day I knew their wedding would be something special and I couldnt wait to hang out with these two again. After arriving at the sweetest little cottage where the gals were getting ready I could see Nicoles excitement, today she was to marry her best friend and she was absolutley glowing. The boys were busy making last minute adjustments on To View More >>

Chanelle & Anthony didnt let a bit of wind and rain ruin their Engagement shoot last weekend and with Anthony leaving on the first flight back to Wellington the next day postponing was not an option, Instead we took shelter under trees at the Cable Bay adventure park while we waited to see if the rain stop.....It didnt. My job was made easy by these two as they giggled there way through the shoot, It quickly became very obvious how truly perfect they are for each other. I had the best afternoon and actually cant remember the last time I had so much fun running around in the rain. We made a To View More >>

I met Owen and Nicole over a year ago so I was super excited when we caught up again last week to do their engagement shoot. We headed off to Cable bay as the sun was setting accompanied by Shelby their adorable and full of energy Staffy, I had a master plan to take them up the hill and catch the last of the days rays I had it all planned out it was going to be perfect. However once we arrived we found the track had been closed due to lambing. Its funny how things happen like that because when I look at these images I couldnt be happier I love them on the beach, we laughed about stubbing our toes To View More >>
