Summer & Rich | Wellington Wedding Photography | Petone Beach

I have to admit something here. I really battled to chose the sneak peek shots from this wedding. Something really pulled me in; maybe the gorgeous floating light-as-wind wedding dress, the beautiful whimsey of the bride who wore it, her and her new husband’s perfectly New Zealand back yard, or the love the two had between them. I’m not sure. But either way I found it really hard to choose, and so here are a few that I agonized over.

Because you can’t tell someone else’s love story, you can only help reflect it back to them; I hope these photos help reflect a small piece of what was Summer and Rich’s spectacular wedding day.

    Lovely photos – I would have had a hard time choosing, too, but I really do think that their personalities come thought. Beautiful job!
