April & Steffan | Raglan Beach | Wainui Bush Reserve

An exhilarating time frame was put to work by a fantastically organised bride and groom at April and Steffan’s beautiful Raglan, Wainui Bush Reserve wedding.  The day’s coverage was compressed into just five hours, but thanks to our relaxed couple and a bit of logistical planning we managed to capture the full range of events, from getting ready to the ceremony, creatives (traversing a number of different locations), family shots and the start of a beautiful reception.  A huge thanks to the couple, and to lovely Raglan and many, many good wishes for your future together.

    Seriously beautiful. I love the tones, and the colours, and the flowergirl shots, and that gorgeous moment captured between the bride and her nan. Lovely.

    Oh Mary, this is one beautiful wedding! I’m torn between the bridesmaids and flowergirl on the floor or the smile between April and her grandmother – they are both so lovely.

    If I had to pin down your style, I’d call you the queen of wide angle.. wow. Your images have such a strong storytelling element to them, they are reminiscent of Norman Rockwell paintings. Fantastic stuff!

    Oh just beautiful, you really feel the emotion from this set. The bride and the grandmother is just an amazing capture. Great set 🙂
