Behind The Scenes - Winter Bridal Collab

Last week I teamed up with a number of very talented Wellington wedding vendors to create a winter bridal shoot. We had a great time and I feel really proud of all our efforts. I'm still so hyped with excitement!! Can't wait to show you all the images.

Here's a few behind the scenes shots taken by my assistant Samantha Hamilton Photography. Thank you for being my rock Sam! Couldn't have done it without you.

Duck Creek Pauatahanui Wedding Photography - Margaret and Menno

Back in February I was a second shooter along side Trudie Campbell for Margaret and Menno's wedding. I'm glad to be sharing my images with you!

We spent some time photographing the girls getting ready. I love this part of the day, there is so much to do and everyone does their part. I get to step back and document it all unfolding.

The ceremony and reception was held at Duck Creek in Pauatahanui. The venue set up was designed by Margaret herself and it looked stunning! I love photographing weddings with personal touch.

At the end of the day Trudie and I got a moment to photograph these two in the sunset. What a great way to finish.

Congratulations Margaret and Menno! Thank you Trudie for asking me to be a part of the photography.

The Landing Wairarapa Wedding Photography - Bri and Andy

Back in December I was second shooter for a wedding. Take a look!

The wedding was held at The Landing in Masterton. That morning I left Wellington in the rain and arrived in the Wairarapa to sun and blue sky!

While Dean photographed Andy and his Groomsmen before the ceremony I spent some time with Bri and the girls while they got ready.

Bri's wedding dress was gorgeous but her gold, sparkly shoes were definitely my favourite!

It was organised to have the bridal party's shoot before the ceremony. I got to photograph 'the first look' from the balcony upstairs.

It was my first time photographing a wedding at The Landing. As a venue it has lots of potential and a variety of environments. I liked the way Bri and Andy's ceremony was set in the vineyard.

Their reception was set up in a marquee. I liked the combination of green grass, white table clothes and the floral arrangements.

I'm glad to have been a part of documenting this wedding. It's great working alongside other photographers and shooting at great locations. Looking back on these images puts a smile on my face and reminds me of how much I love my job as a photographer! Thank you to Dean and congratulations to Bri and Andy!
