Anna & Tyla's wedding was simply stunning. A laid back, rustic kiwi farm wedding out on the property they manage out at Mikimiki, Masteron. We had a lot of fun location scouting for this wedding, as there really are beautiful spots where ever you look, but the one place we had to go, was to the bridge where Tyla proposed to Anna. The ceremony was held under a tree in a paddock with the reception in the shearing shed. I love the way Anna & Tyla put so much time and effort into creating such beautiful spaces for their celebrations - mostly we up-cycled a and homemade items. The chandeliers on the barn and tree were stunning! Thank so much for having me along for your wonderful day! Sharisse xx

Tirohana Wedding Photographer - Felicity & Peter Felicity and Peter meet through their shared love of dance, and from there their love grew. When they mentioned that they were dancers I was super excited - we were all really keen to incorporate one of their biggest passions into the wedding photographs, especially as this was where they meant and what brought them together.

Anna & Tom were married at Brackenridge Country Estate on a beautiful January afternoon. Originally this wedding was booked in for May, but just a few months ago Anna called me to let me know they needed to move their wedding forward as she had been given a unique opportunity with work to spend some time in Japan. So we quickly got it all sorted and luckily all the other vendors could move dates, and it was all systems go. With Tom being from Canada, it did mean it was short notice for a lot of guests, but his mum made the trip over , which was so special for them. Thing I loved about this wedding it that it was all about family and friends - simple, relaxed and super cruisey. Theses guys just go with the flow, and roll with whatever life throws at them. Thanks for having me along on your wedding day. xx

Poppies, Martinborough Wedding Photographer - Lauren & Mike's wedding Another beautiful Martinborough wedding - this time at Poppies Vineyard. Lauren & Mikes wedding was all about family and friends and keeping it low key. As they are both private people and not fond of being the center of attention, they opted to have their photographs taken before the ceremony and then walk up the aisle together. I loved that touch at the start of the ceremony - supporting each other right form the start! The great part about taking photographs early in the day, is that after the service it was time to hang out with the family and enjoy the day! I think it fair to say that they certainly acheived theri goal of having a relaxed day with friends and family. Thanks so much for having me along! xx Photography - Sharisse Eberlein Hair & Make up - White Boutique www.whiteboutique.co.nz Flowers - TreeTop Flowers, Maretinborough www.treetopflowers.co.nz Dress - Hello Romeo, Martinborough www.helloromeo.co.nz.

Adventure Photography Wairarapa - Cone Summit, Tararuas I love nothing more than exploring our amazing back yard. We really are blessed with the size and magnificence of our Tararua Ranges. Some images from a hike up to Cone Summit.
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
Wairarapa Newborn Photographer - Samantha & Family This is the third time I have photographed the gorgeous Samantha & Micheal - and the really cool thing is, each time I see them they have a new family member for me to meet! How cool is that?!

NZIPP Iris Awards 2018 Its that time of year again and it still makes me nervous! Luckily I came away with 7 awards, which I was thrilled with, so here is the low down..... First up, my silver award from the NZIPP Iris Awards. This image was entered into the Portrait In Camera Artistry Category. This category celebrates in-camera capture so no photoshopp trickery allowed! I had about 9 or so images from this shoot which I was going to entered last year, but I couldn't quite decide how to lay them out. In the end I opted to use just these three shots of my boys playing around on a wooden boat at the park. I decided that take the documentary style images and use the repetition of the circles and the lines of the boat to create a stronger graphic. I was thrilled to receive a bronze award for this image in the Portrait In Camera Artistry category at the recent NZIPP Iris Awards. I have been training for Ultra Trail Marathons with an online community for a couple of years now. During that time I have met so many people that inspire me to really see where my limits are and just how far I can go. The thing I love most about the there are all sorts of people, from all walks of life, of all ages that take on these incredible challenges. Real people, extraordinary goals. My aim was to create an image that celebrates this. I decided that I wanted to create a set of portraits of these athletes with their various medals, but photograph them in a very real, everyday way to emphasis the fact that what they [...]

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.
