Diana & Tony

Milk & Honey, Hunter Lounge, VUW

Venues: Milk & Honey, The Hunter Lounge (VUW, Wellington)

It’s a great honour to be asked and trusted to photograph a wedding. It’s an even bigger honour when the bride & groom are relatives of previous couples – when we’ve met them and hung out before.

I couldn’t tell you how many weddings we’ve seen Diana & Tony at, and we couldn’t wait to spend more time with them and their family & friends.

Here’s Diana & Tony’s huge celebration!

Amanda & Geoff – NZIPP Iris Awards Wedding Album finalist

Boof! POW! Wham.

At the 2012 NZIPP Iris Awards I was looking to enter something a little different. A little unique. A little more rock ‘n roll than a traditional wedding album.

The idea of a comic book came to me, and using Amanda & Geoff’s Wellington wedding I managed to craft a pop-art, stylised comic book artbook. It received a Bronze medal, and placed me as a finalist in the Wedding Album category!

Hope you enjoy the story of Amanda & Geoff’s wedding, as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Thanks Amanda & Geoff!

Nella & Talia

Remember Nella & Talia?

If you remember the invitation, it was a cocktail affair at the stunning Massey Tea Gardens. But there’ll be some traditional Samoan dancing, they told us. There’ll be plenty of singing and dancing, they said. Oh, and Samoan people *love* the attention of the camera, they also mentioned.

And Nella & Talia weren’t wrong. What followed was one of the most amazing wedding celebrations we’ve ever witnessed.

Nella was also the Featured Bride over at Astra Bridal so check that out too!

Have a listen to this song as you browse the images, all will become clear later in the post!

Nella and her bridesmaids & flower girls begun the morning getting prepared at their house, Bon Jovi playing in the background. Being a huge Bon Jovi fan Aneta felt right at home!

Meanwhile Talia and the boys had spent the morning putting the finishing touches in place at the venues and generally chilling out. Oh, and laying out all their gear quite nicely for me!

The Soundshell at the Botanic Gardens provided the perfect venue for a wedding amidst the beauty of the green trees and surrounded by almost 200 guests.

And then it happened. The most amazing part of the day. Amidst the chaos, laughter and dancing Nella reluctantly took the microphone and sang the most amazing rendition of “Last Dance” I’ve ever heard. Ah-mazing.

Nella & Talia, thank you.

Matt & Kel

“He’s a loose cannon, you can’t tie him down”, Matt’s father was saying to me late at night during the reception.

“I know”, I was thinking to myself, “I’ve just spent a hour trying to take a single serious picture of Matt & Kel together. She’s going to hate me for not getting capturing him without a goofy smile or in the middle of some goofy pose”.

But in the end, it didn’t matter.

Because you know what? That’s Matt. And that’s the Matt that Kel fell in love with.

I may not have taken a serious photo. But god we had fun.

Ladies & Gentlemen: Matt & Kel.

Congratulations Nella!

We always love keeping in touch with our upcoming brides & grooms. It’s nice to share in the excitement, passing back tips and ideas, and watch them make their way towards their big day.

We were just as chuffed as Nella when she was recently the winner of the Astra Bridal Win your Wedding Dress competition. Congratulations Nella!

As a teaser, this is the beautiful Nella and dashing Talia from a recent engagement shoot.
