Nitasha and David were married at Pauatahanui Inlet on a gorgeous, sun-filled day. But even the sun couldn’t rival the beautiful light and colour on show all day… not to mention the couple bubbling over with happiness. The couple had a traditional Indian ceremony, and as I read through the run sheet for the ceremony,…

Sarah and Jeremy got married at the peak of Martinborough’s summery goodness. Brackenridge Estate was, as always, a total delight. But the real joy was found in their families. I had such a blast photographing everyone together at the reception. Everyone was so happy and supportive, and the speeches were so lovely. Sarah and Jason…

Abby and Shaun were married in town and spent time at Island Bay, in the vicious wind, braving a summer squall, hanging out with their friends, taking in the vista and enjoying those precious few hours between having just gotten married, and being celebrated at their awesome reception at Foxglove, Wellington Waterfront. It was such a…

    Beautiful layered imagery; from lighting, to reflections, to depth, you have a knack for sewing together foreground and background.

  • Andreas - freshphotography MelbourneDecember 28, 2015 - 1:47 pm

    Love these. Some wonderful creative photographs in there. I love the first and second … it’s great to see very dark photo and then straight away followed by a very bright/white picture. The combination works. Well done.

    Some great processing and love the use of light. My absolute favourite is the one on the stairways … (bride and groom walking down). The composition just works.

    These are amazing. Some of the best photos I have seen.

I love winter weddings. You see, I’m kind of a traitor to my profession. I think I even prefer winter to summer (gasp!) because it’s just so romantic. Fireplaces, cold winds howling, rain falling, dark skies: I can’t get enough of it. This unpredictable Wellington winter, I had the opportunity to photograph a gorgeous wedding at the…

    So good

I’m having the best time right now putting together album designs, and sifting through all the Queensberry options for the awesome couples whose wedding I shot last summer. Right now I’ve just started in on Sylvester and Cordelia’s album. They were one of a handful of couples who had to battle the elements this summer…
