I had the privilege of photographing this beautiful family outdoors in the beautiful sunset. Take a look at the magic we made.
While I was over in Queenstown capturing a gorgeous wedding, I was also able to meet up with these two legends on one of my spare days!
I’ve known Emma and Stephen for a few years now. Having the privilege of capturing their engagement party in Wollongong, stunning wedding in the Hunter Valley and now being able to capture their love in this heart throb of a town, Queenstown, New Zealand.
These two moved over here as Emma got offered a killer job with Go Orange, you should definitely check them out if you’re a first timer to the South Island and want some amazing adventures.
We truly had the best time with Em & Step showing us around their new hometown. Thanks for having me and the hubs and showing us how the locals do it. We will definitely be back again soon!
Mel & Ben had family at the forefront when they planned their wedding. Their family and friends were the focus and you can really see how much they love them. It’s was such a beautiful wedding to be able to capture. There were so many meaningful moments I was lucky enough to be able to document. Have a scroll through and I bet you wont be able to wipe the smile off your face, especially when you see Mel’s Dad react to her being all dressed and ready to Marry her man.

This wedding was one of the sweetest weddings I’ve had the privilege of capturing. Emma & Pauly are two of the kindest souls you will ever meet and they’re totally smitten with each other. I’m sure you can tell by the photos below. Emma found her gorgeous dress in a vintage store. It’s by Laura Dols- Amsterdam and Emma added the embellishments herself, so cool! They also had Balinese Spice Magic cater for them and I wish everyone did haha! They’re amazing! Have a look at how they styled their cute intimate wedding.

Ummm wow! What a way to kick off the new wedding season. This wedding had it all. It was so beautiful and emotional as well as so many laughs along the way. The wedding took place at the beautiful Montrose Berry Farm - Fiona & Bruce the owners were so lovely and helpful. The Olive Branch Stylists did a killer job on the florals and oh, the cake! The groom himself made this amazing cake. Jess looked stunning in her KWH Dress. It was the perfect winter wedding dress. Check it all out below!
It was just by chance that I was ale to capture this beautiful wedding. My husbands best friend was the Grooms brother (did you follow that ok?) and he mentioned to us that they didn't have a photographer to capture his brothers wedding yet. Well it just so happened that it was my last weekend free in June and how could I say no to a weekend spent in Kangaroo Valley with some great friends. I was more than happy to document their killer wedding!

Jamie & Kane decided to surprise all their guests with getting married at their engagement party.
They threw shakkas after the said I-Do, spoke beautiful and emotional words about each other during their vows and also I learnt that they were pretty fun and adventurous people. Taking their Land Cruiser away most weekends to find a experience a new adventure together. Their family and friends laughed and cried and they embraced them with the most meaningful hugs after the ceremony. You could really feel the love that their family and friends had for these two awesome people.

Wow, this location was just so beautiful! The Blue Mountains took my breath away while we were shooting Joyce & Cliffs photos. I've been to the Blue Mountains so many times before but to see it through a lens with a Bride & Groom who were totally up for the 30min hike, well that was just something else! You have to check out their Wedding.

Katrina and Rohan had a wedding that truly represented them. It was fun and relaxed, along with it being a night to remember. They brought Croatian fun (and many shots haha) mixed with the raw Aussie bush and a fair few beers. It was such an awesome wedding to be a part of. From getting ready in a beautiful, cosy, cabin onsite, plus spotting the multitude of Kangaroos in the background during our photo session, all the way to their first dance under the stars, it's a wedding I'll remember for a long time.

These two just melted into my camera from the start. I loved capturing their love and I cannot wait to capture their wedding and tell their story through the photos.
I love pine forests and dirt roads so Penrose is such a fitting place for a beautiful engagement session. If your willing to do some bush bashing and climb a few dirt mounds we can totally make some magic happen in this beautiful spot.
What an amazing wedding this was. I'll forever hold it close to my heart. My husband, Bryce and I made some amazing friends on this Trip to New Zealand for this stunning wedding. Kelly & Dean along with both their families are the most beautiful, genuine and welcoming people. They opened their house up to us and we truly felt at home being here.
Being able to document their love was the biggest privilege. Their whole day was just overflowing with love and laughter.
Kelly & Dean were married on Deans Parents Apple Orchard in Puketapu, Hawks Bay, New Zealand. It was a stunning DIY wedding with Marquee reception. The tables even featured Kelly's favourite vegetable as the centre pieces, Kale. Which also had a special place in her bouquet. These two along with their families and friends totally outdid themselves. It was nothing short of amazing.
The day after the wedding myself and Bryce were invited back to the next day BBQ where we showed off some of their sample photos, drank rosé, and recovered from their awesome wedding.
We left that day not only with a supply of delicious home grown apples to fuel the rest of our trip, but with some beautiful new friends and I can't wait till we can catch up again!
