Rob + Michelle

“Hear my soul speak. Of the very instant that I saw you, Did my heart fly at your service”

-William Shakespeare


A few weeks ago, I had the utter delight of being there to photograph and witness Michelle and Rob get married.  It was a beautiful ceremony, and they both exchanged very heartfelt vows.  I found it incredibly moving.  Michelle, and Rob could be two of the most genuine people I have come across.   These weddings are what dreams are made of.


Kath, Josh & Paddy

In my job, I get to hear some pretty special and touching stories.  I get to see people at the happiest time of their lives.  I am blessed to be able to document memories for people.  Not only huge, life defining moments, but tiny moments in the quiet.  These people, must be some of my favourite I have photographed..

Remember this family?

Well not long after that session, Nick passed away.  Almost 2 years later, to the day, I photographed them again.  They all have been through so, so much.  Much more than anyone let alone 2 young boys should have had to handle at such a tender age.  But this is proof, slowly but surely you can survive, and somehow come out the other side.  And Kath, my friend – you are an incredible woman.


Liz - gorgeous photos of a gorgeous family. Kath is one beautiful lady on the inside and out! So strong!

Karen + Sean

“Settle down with me

Cover me up

Cuddle me in

Lie down with me

Hold me in your arms”

This was my first wedding of the season this year.  I packed my bags, the husband and the baby and flew down south for the occasion.  The wedding was in Timaru, with the reception held in Temuka.  It was a beautiful wedding, for some lovely lovely friends, Karen and Sean.  I feel so honoured to have been there to share this special day with you and all of your family.  May your life be blessed with much love!

p.s have I ever said how much I love shooting in the woods?

p.p.s big love to my new friend Nikitta from Nikitta Grace Photography for coming along to assist, if you’re in Ashburton go check it!

Wes and Maree - Sean and Karen
Pictures look great.
Sean it is so many years since we saw you as a very young boy.
May the years ahead with your wife be gracious and kind.
Remember, love does not hold a grudge.

God Bless
