Wairarapa Winter Weddings - Rebecca & Campbell I love a good winter wedding! The light is lovely and soft and the days are short. This means you get to make the most of the daylight, golden hour and night time shots without taking pictures all day and all night! Rebecca and Campbell chose their date for the new moon for the start of a new beginning and I was so excited. I kept my fingers and toes crossed for a lovely sunny day and a clear night! Thanks so much for having me along Rebecca & Campbell. x

Queensberry Wedding Albums - Tina & David I always feel that a wedding isn't really finished until the album is complete. Its that time of year again when I am busy finishing up all the albums from over summer, and for me this is the best bit. Seeing all the images form the day put together to tell the story of your day as it unfolds. I always so to couples that although this is your album it not just for you. Its also for your children, your children's children. A way to sit together and look over the memories from the day when this little branch of your family starting. I think all to to often, we don't realise just how important photographs are until they are gone. If you want to make sure you still have them in 10, 20, 30 years time then print them. Even better put them in a beautiful album.

Poppies Martinborough Wedding Photographer - Mel & Ants I just loved, loved shooting this wedding! Mel and Ants are just so awesome and to top it off it was an off season wedding which I just love! There is a lot to be said for getting married over the cooler months - you get a wider choice of vendors, the light is softer and you also get to enjoy not only the soft light, but sunset, the blue hours and if you are lucky a clear night and a wedding photograph under the milkyway! What more could you ask for! Thanks so much for having me along Mel & Ants! xx

Martinborough Wedding Photographer - Kelly & Mark Well, what a location for a wedding! Kelly's family own a farm in Martinborough, so its was only fitting that this is where the wedding was to be held. So all the yutes came out to get everyone up and over the farm to where it was all happening - I think we can say that it was well worth it!
Castlepoint Wedding Photographer - Warren & Julie What a wonderful! The wild and windy Wairarapa coast at its absolute best! Julie & Warren had arranged a small, intimate, low key affair out on the price of land they own out at Castlepoint. It has views galore and is where they plan on building their home together, so it really was the perfect place to official start their life together. The late afternoon ceremony meant that we could make the most of of stunning early evening light, so off we went on a hike around the the cliff tops, back down the beach and finally ending up at the lighthouse just as the sun was setting.

Martinborough Wedding Photographer - David & Tina I always love a wedding at Brackenridge, Martinborough and this one was no different. Tina & David had their two children in the wedding party and the day really was all about family. One of the really special touches was having a magician at the recepetion - David's grandfather was a magician so this was a lovely nod to him. Thanks so much for having me along for your wonderful day! Sharisse xx
Riversdale Wedding Photographer - Liam & Renee What could be more chilled out than having your wedding at a beautiful beach-side location? Renee & Liam choose to do just that - and chilled out it was! The groom was even doing his tie about 5 mins before the wedding ceremony, and the bride arrived courtesy of her brother's yute! I loved the relaxed casual vibe to this wedding - a lovely low key affair with friends and family. What more could you want? Thanks so much for having me along! Sharisse x

The Landing Masterton Wedding Photographer - Jade & Craig The Landing in Masterton is one of my favorite venues in the Wairarapa and its always a pleasure to work there. It was no exception for Jade & Craig's big day. This day was perfect from start to finish and with two young children in tow, these two were super relaxed about everything on the day and leading up to it. Being farmers, we made the most of the rural setting behind the property. Their two young boys loved the tractor and the doves but by the end of the day, all the excitement of the wedding day had got the better of them! Jade & Craig, thanks so much for having me along! x
Tarureka Estate Wedding Photography - Sam & Jennifer Sometimes less is more. Sam & Jennifer kept their beautiful Tarureka Estate wedding very simple and low key. Just a small group of close friends and family celebrating at a beautiful location. These guys asked me to shoot for just a few hours, which was plenty to cover everything they wanted. I really love weddings like this - sweet and simple and all about the people around you. Sam & Jennifer, thanks so much for having me along for your wedding day. xx
