Elise + Jess {Taupo wedding photographer}

“If you were falling, then I would catch you.

You need a light, I’d find a match.

Cause I love the way you say good morning.

And you take me the way I am.”

- Ingrid Michaelson

Jess and Elise got married in March at the lovely Hilton in Taupo. What a beautiful place to get married! I loved all their little rustic touches they added to the décor. What a sweet couple Jess and Elise are. And not to mention, Elise is incredibly photogenic! Go on see for yourselves!

Bridget + John. an engagement

My lovely niece and her rather awesome fiancé are getting married soon.  I think I may have met Bridget when she was a sweet kid of about 13 and now she is getting married (she is still sweet, mind you).  I can’t believe it!  Where have those years gone?  One day a few months ago, they came over and we took some photos of them to celebrate such a wonderful time of their lives.  There are so many things I wish I knew before I got married, I won’t give unsolicited advice here, besides, part of the fun of being husband and wife is finding out these little things!

B + J, I cannot wait to be there and witness the joining of your lives together.  It shall be a beautiful, beautiful day!

P.s Can I just say that I love that they can have fun and don’t take themselves too seriously!

here’s to you sister.

Earlier on the in the year, during summer, my sister and her daughter came down to stay at our place.  The girls and I had a wonderful time with them, needless to say my girls just love having their cousins over for sleepovers!  As the evenings were longer and warmer it wasn’t long before we pulled out the camera and took a few shots of them.  Lately I have been thinking how fast time is flying by and how my children are growing up faster than I can possibly believe.  Which means, we are all getting older.  As I ponder these things, and the reality of life, it just reminds me that life waits for no one.  It always goes on.  These are busy days for all of us, but it really does pay to spend your time with those you love.   There really is nothing like family.

“Shoelaces untied
you can dry your eyes
perfect shadows alive
behind us
this is the day I make you mine
way your hair lies
sometimes unrecognized
all the way from these today
on a train
nothing to say if there’s still time
but you are the one
I’ve been waiting for today
and here comes the sun that’s been baiting on today
lately I’ve lost my tongue
today you found the sun
oh no not long has grown
well I thank God you came along
you are the one I’ve been waiting for today”

This post has taken quite some time to come.  But I have finally gotten here.

Chris and Rebecca, two beautiful souls, wed at Belsaas Estate on a glorious summer day in March.  It was such a fun wedding to shoot, I have known them both for some years now and it so wonderful to be there and witness the start of their journey of marriage! And what a beautiful one it will be, I am sure!  Am I allowed to say, that this *could* be my favourite wedding of the season?  It has only been a few weeks since I shot my last wedding, but putting together this blog post has made me yearn for more..

This is going to be one long blog post, I as I just couldn’t decide on which images best told the story so grab a cuppa and make yourself comfortable.

I hope you all have been enjoying this winter, snuggling up with your loves.
