Anna & Simon | Wedding Photography | Levin

We can honestly say that we get to photograph the most fabulous people.  We have so much fun spending time with people and capturing their special moments. Anna and Simon's wedding is a perfect example.

Even in their early twenties, they have already been involved in, initiated and accomplished many successful development and community programs in the developing world.  A beautiful couple inside and out, we were thrilled to be capturing their wedding day!

Anna looked stunning wearing a timeless white dress with detailing on the bodice and beautiful vintage inspired accessories with pearls and diamantes.  Her make-up was done beautifully and she wore her fabulous long dark hair in a side plait with soft curls flowing down.  Anna was beaming! 

Both Simon and Anna had a relaxed morning each getting ready in their family homes before meeting for their first look.  We just love love love when couples do a first look! It is such a special moment, they see each for the first time, and in that moment it is just the Bride and Groom, together. Anna and Simon chose a gorgeous spot in the woods, secluded with tall trees and the river near by, this was a perfect setting.

Anna and Simon had an outside ceremony in the picturesque garden at Fantails in Levin.  Under the shade of the trees they shared their vows in a personal and genuine ceremony. Having already done the location photographs after the first look, Anna and Simon just enjoyed the rest of the day with the guests at their garden afternoon tea.  Tasty pastries, appetisers and sweet treats were a perfect way to celebrate with friends and family and start their journey as man and wife.

We had such a fun day with you guys, thanks so much for letting us be a part of it and we can't wait to see what the future holds for you both :)

Happy Brithday Dave!

So it will be starting to become apparent that Martha Stewart I am not.

However, on special occasions such as Dave's birthday, even I will give baking a go.  So a quick google search of recipes and after choosing the best looking lemons from our tree, I was baking!

And just to prove that yes, I did indeed bake a lemon cake for Dave's birthday today, here is some photographic evidence! 

The verdict? Well Dave have two slices and scraped the baking tin clean. Baking win!

Happy Birthday to you my wonderful husband and best friend! May the future hold many more delicious cakes and sweet surprises for you!  xox

Joseph Portrait Photography | Auckland

We had the pleasure of shooting a portrait photography session for Joseph, an aspiring young actor and model. He was after some photographs for his portfolio, so keeping it urban and young we chose a central Auckland soot location.

Having achieved so much already for such a young age and also being a great guy, you should watch this space.. The next time you see Joseph could be on TV or in a magazine!!

Steve, Lisa & Hope | Family Photography | Auckland

The other weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Steve and Lisa with their absolutely adorable daughter Hope.  We headed out to one of the beaches on the Auckland's North Shore and what a fun afternoon it was! 

Hope was pretty keen to paddle in the waves, so on came the very cute little togs and away she went! With plenty of laughs from everyone, we captured some great moments of them relaxing and having fun as a family.  What a beautiful family!
