Family Photography | Auckland | Andrew & Jolie

Somehow being in the country is so refreshing.  And it was no exception when we spent the morning with Andrew, Jolie and their two gorgeous wee lads at their lifestyle block north of Auckland in Helensville.

We started with some fun shots in the family home and once the rain had eased to a drizzle gumboots were donned and we all headed out to explore outside. What a fantastic way to spend a morning, away from the busy city, just enjoying family life in the country, feeding the chickens and checking for eggs!

Melissa & Aaron | Wedding Photography | Auckland

Although the spring weather was threatening to rain, Melissa and Aaron's wedding was always going to be a bright and beautiful day!

With champagne and matching bathrobes, Melissa spent a fun morning getting ready with her bridesmaids at Whenuapai. Melissa wore a fabulous A-line bridal gown with a sweet heart neckline featuring ruching and crystal detailing.  With her make-up perfectly accentuating her gorgeous completion and fabulous auburn hair, Melissa was glowing!

Sharing this special moment with friends and family, Melissa and Aaron married at the lovely old St Martins Chapel in Waimauku, Auckland.  Celebrating their love, it was a personal ceremony involving both family and friends.

The bridal party went to the Hobsonville boat ramp for the creative shoot.  A perfect location for a fun a relaxed photography shoot, leading down to Catalina Bay and overlooking the North Shore.

The reception was held at the picturesque setting of The Brigham in Whenuapai, with cocktail hour in the garden area.  Continuing on with theme, the reception was pretty and fresh with fuchsia, orange and yellow details.  From the wedding details to Melissa and Aaron, this really was a bright and beautiful wedding!
