JP & Gem created a very personal ceremony in a beautiful, private location in Lake Hawea! I always love spotting personal touches on weddings, JP & Gem made sure you could tell who they were with there quirkly set up of lego men!
A quick engagement shoot on a rainy day in front of my favourite backdrop! I'm so excited to see these two tie the knot and capture more of their personality and obvious love for each other. You were both great at relaxing and being your usual selves in front of a camera which can be totally scary!
Engagement shoots are a great practice run for your wedding photography, beautiful way to celebrate and a good chance to send a personal wedding invitation with a photo of the happy couple!
Tarsh & Daniel will be getting married in Invercargill next year and I feel so happy to be chosen as their photographer. Our styles align and personalities click which makes for a really good photo shoot!

Styling a specific photo shoot has always been a goal for me so I decided to organise my own wedding! I know that my skill is behind the camera and know there are plenty of artistic and passionate people around me also wanting to create beautiful images. I decided rather than styling a photo shoot myself it was best to seek my favourite people in the industry and let them create for me based on the instruction that we were going for a very natural looking bride and groom.
Leaving everyone to their own creative flow meant this photo shoot was going to have a special feel to it!
I really enjoy wedding photography and have to always be mindful of time as the bride and groom have a big day and night ahead with plenty of guest waiting for them, I try and plan as much as I can so we can get as many beautiful wedding photos as possible without taking up the whole day. This is a great way for me to practise poses so I can bring them to a bride and groom for their wedding photos.
