Botanic garden | Wellington weddings

Weddings are always beautiful. Big or small, modest or over the top. No matter what size, what style, when or where – they are always touching and beautiful. And I just love photographing all of them.

Capturing a wedding at Wellington Botanic Garden last month was simply beautiful. Just the closest family members gathered together in front of the Peace garden waterfall made this ceremony so intimate and beautiful.  I can still hear that waterfall flowing on the background, see the sun peeking through the leaves after rainy morning and light scent of the roses in the rose garden. And most of all – remember the wide smiles and laughters of the day.

Gosh I just love my job. And these awesome, beautiful couples!  Thank you for having me to capture your day!

Family photography Porirua

We started at the Aotea lagoon and ended up at the hill with awesome views around Porirua harbour.
Nicely spent morning with this beautiful couple and funny little boys.
And what a perfect timing – the newest member of the family was born only few days after our photo shoot. 

Congratulations to all of you!

Rebekah | Portrait shoot Porirua

_DSC5473rdwb_DSC5467I was really honored to have a chance to take portraits of local poet, Rebekah Burgess.
We were after some autumn foliage to get certain feel for her photos but it was quite a challenge in this area. So best we came up with was the rose garden in Aotea lagoon. And it worked quite well. Here’s a little sneak peek of the day.
Thanks Rebekah, it was lovely to work with you!
