Sarah. Inside of a temple that would have been completely foreign to her before she met Sandeep. Surrounded by a culture that is not her own, but one that she walked whole-heartedly into and embraced alongside the person she loves. I don’t think I’ll ever stop getting emotional at moments like these, and I hope I never do. Have wonderful days ahead everyone, practise a little kindness out of your comfort zone today x
Pro-tip, if you’re going to slide down a hill painfully while shooting a wedding and roll your wrist, make sure your couple both work in medical fields and can check it out for you immediately 😂😂😂 But seriously, Mariska & Tim aside from being the sweetest people ever - threw an incredible day for their loved ones and did so whilst looking so good it hurt!

Lakeside winter mornings require additional cuddling.
The new year is certainly off to a scorcher of a start down here in NZ! Here’s a little frame from one of my last weddings of 2018, the lovely Sreshta & Farhan on a little slice of paradise we call Waiheke island. Pure, absolute paradise.
Sending this wonderful human a set of images from an incredible day tomorrow! @stephybelle you are a dream! Gown by @martinalianabridal makeup by @pennyrosestyling all out at the gorgeous milk station in Otaki love by everyone!
New Zealand you’re a little bit of alright....
The best things in life aren’t things. And to be honest I’m definitely not an authority on what they might be - but if I were to guess, dancing with your husband beneath the stars with your loved ones is probably up there. Another gorgeous day alongside @tietheknotsantorini
Good light, good people, good grief I’m lucky! These two beauts dressed in the knockout combo of @workingstylenz and @martinalianabridal was 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
Back onto another flight and away from this fancy guy for a fairly decent stint as I chase the sun. It’s been a wonderfully wintery December and such a treat to have had Christmas in Canada! My Southern Hemisphere officially kicks off as of right now and I cant wait, bring on the sun & the sand & the I do’s & the ice blocks & the friends! See you soon NZ!
I had the most wonderful wintery Christmas break with my dearest, hope you’ve all had a great break and are busy enjoying the blissful time between Christmas and the new year, take things slow, spend time with those you love and make some memories x
“Just married” - two of the sweetest words you can utter in this life, in my opinion anyhow. I had the privilege of using these two words over and over this year gone, and the image I captured which I think best embodies them - is this one here from Hannah & Matt’s incredible Taupo wedding.
I’ve said it once and I’ll continue to say it again and again - go technology free for your wedding ceremony, Magic happens when we put our phones down. Connection happens, gratitude happens, love happens.
This is one of the most hilarious sequences of images I shot this year - Laura & Mike brought their gorgeous dog Indy along for the shoot, but we wanted a couple of frames without her - she wasn’t into this though. This is Mike sternly telling her to stay as she creeps her way up the path towards us pretending she couldn’t hear a thing 😂😂😂
Sun on your face, wind in your hair, love in your heart. The quintessential kiwi summer wedding day recipe.
