Emma and Isaac // Piha Mini Session

A sun filled afternoon wandering the beach with the two loves of your life… You’re best mate and your soon to be newest team member!

Photography has opened my eyes to a lot of things in this beautiful world, but the one that has hit me the hardest, is this moment right here… Growing a little human in your tummy and bringing life into this world. I really do believe that it is the real magic of this life that we get to live.

Emma and Isaac will be holding their little bubba in their arms by now and Im so grateful I got to document this moment for them here. The waiting of anticipation to meet your first child.

Tekapo Engagement Shoot // New Zealand Wedding Photographer

I must sound like a broken record but I am so chuffed to be able to travel doing what I love. The fact that I can fly for 2 hours, drive for 3 and end up somewhere completely different to my little home town of Piha, somewhere where I am surrounded by snow capped mountains and icy blue lakes. That blows my freaking mind!

I LOVE travelling New Zealand for work. There is so much too see and so much variety across our little country. I used to take New Zealand for granted before Photography opened my eyes to what an amazing country it is! And I’ll always be thankful for that. And I’ll always be thankful for couples like these two who made the trip an absolute breeze! I had so much fun with them and Im so grateful to have meet these two and witnessed their love for one another.

A beautiful backdrop is one thing, but It’s couples like this that take a photograph from “Beautiful” to Absolute MAGIC!

Lewis and Amy // Piha Engagement Shoot

Lewis, Amy and I sat down over a coffee at the Piha cafe one afternoon to catchup and chat about their wedding coming up next month. A usual occurrence for me, I love meeting up with my couples to get to know them before locking anything in. This was different tho. I already knew Lewis, him and I attended the same Uni together, for two very different reasons. I was studying the Acting degree, him the Screen Arts degree. The nature of our chosen fields meant that our departments overlapped many times through the course of that 3 years of study as we regularly had to make short films together. So we all knew each other fairly well. This feels like a lifetime ago, but while sitting down chatting with these two I was forced to relive some of the most hilarious and strange moments of my life as we recited to Amy the sheer ridiculousness that was our Unitec days. And man, I forgot so many of the ridiculous things I had willingly put myself through (painting my entire face with clay and covering my hands in latex and being Jesus, just to name a few)

By the end of the meeting my cheeks hurt, tears were streaming down my face and my stomach was cramped from all the laughing. I thought that there wasn’t any possible way I could laugh anymore. That was until the day we did their engagement shoot.

You see I thought the laughter was circumstantial, based around the retelling of embarrassing stories and remembering of our days as young fresh faced “adults” attempting to make sense of the world. Turns out these two are just made of laughter and joy! They claim its their “awkwardness” I reckon its just them being freaking adorable! As always Piha made for the most beautiful backdrop, but it was once again outshined by these two freaking AMAZING humans! I cant wait to celebrate their Wedding in the Coromandel! If there is one thing to be sure of its that it’ll be filled with ALL the laughs!
