Eliza Coupe + Darin Olien’s Wedding at Kauri Cliffs // New Zealand photographer Jess Burges

The Eve of Christmas I was invited to shoot a small very laid-back wedding at Kauri Cliffs, Eliza and Darin wanted to document their elopement ceremony and have a few photos together after the ceremony ! Although I had chatted over email I had no idea who the couple were that I was photographing (or rather the fact that they are both celebrities). So it came as quite a surprise ‘after’ the wedding on the way home in the car when my assistant googled their names and we discovered who they were! Eliza Coupe and Darin Olien. Guys you were both such an enlightening gorgeous couple to photograph, true soul mates. I’m pleased I had no idea of your status back in the USA, it kept everything so humble and relaxed.

It was such a pleasure to meet you both!

Enjoy the preview of your spacial day J xx

    Hi, I am Eliza’s mother and I just wanted to express my true appreciation for your talent and eye for photographing Eliza and Darin’s wedding celebration in New Zealand. You captured their love, their personalities and the fun they experienced.

    Since her Dad and I were not there you made it seem as if we were.

    Thank you,
