    Jenika and Chris’s Wedding | The Stables | Matakana

    I first met Jenika and Chris as they were part of the bridal party of a wedding I was photographing in Waipu last summer. Not only was I excited to be part of their wedding but also that my bride and groom from last summer was now in the bridal party of these guys!!

    These gorgeous humans, Jenika and Chris married at The Stables in Matakana just before Christmas. Honestly, it was such a huge honour to be there to celebrate your incredible wedding day… and seriously the sunset session was pretty epic!

    What an absolute honour to be part of your day xox

      Eagles Nest Wedding | Northland New Zealand

      These guys came over from Hong Kong in late winter and tied the knot at the Eagles Nest in Northland. They have asked me not to mention their names but I will say this was one of the most emotive wedding elopements I have ever experienced.

        Markus + Elena // Kerikeri Wedding

        Markus and Elena lived in different countries on the other side of the world from each other and during winter they tied the knot in New Zealand, in Kerikeri’s St James church. Just the two of them and a handful of family and friends. The weather was typically cold, blustery and moody but this didn’t faze these two in the least.

        Thanks, Elena and Mark for sharing your lovely celebration with me x

          Lifestyle Family Portraits // Kerikeri

          A hour in the life of these guys!!! These guys didn’t want contrived formal family photos, they just wanted some fun family memories on their farm.  I think we managed to get some great shots!!

            Siran and Paul’s Russell Wedding

            I have known these two and their families almost as long as I have lived in Kerikeri (18 yrs already), both when we had young kids and separately, so many years later when they came together it was such an exciting celebration to be part of.

            Siran and Paul tied the knot on this perfect clear sky day in mid-May on the deck at The Duke Of Marlborough surrounded their families, their six kids and many friends! Having know these guys for so long this was a really special wedding for me to be photographing and attending guest!

            I feel so utterly privileged to have been part of your day and … to party until the lights went out, the last ones standing! I am happy for all beautiful family.
