Matt & Anna | Riversdale Beach Wedding Photographer | New Zealand

‘Are we doing this right?’

I get that question a lot during the creative part of a wedding day. The fact is, if you’re anything like Anna and Matt (just having some fun and hanging out before heading up to their reception) then you couldn’t be more perfectly suited for creative shots.

I love to just hang back and follow the bride and groom during the creative photos, reflecting back to them their own love story. In the case of Anna and Matt, we were walking along Riversdale Beach, where Matt’s parents had owned a house for a loooong time. They had a beautiful ceremony beside a tiny little seaside church, then all of their friends and family joined them for an exquisite marquee reception with panoramic views of the ocean.

    I always say, do your own thing and forget that we’re here! It always takes a few minutes for the bride and groom to get used but as soon as they do you’re off to get the greatest wedding photos!
