Wairarapa Family Photographer – My Fam

2020-05-15T13:43:50+12:00

Wairarapa Family Photographer - My Fam :) I was hoping to see this crazy bunch over in the UK in July. But like so many others my plans are now up in air and we have no idea when we will see each other again. :( In the meantime I am super thankful for having them come to stay last year and getting lots of quality time together.  And I am also super grateful that I got to photograph them and that I get to see these lovely photos, with their beautiful smiles and playful nature. Love you guys. xx

Wairarapa Wedding Photographer – Crystal & Rukas, Ekatahuna Country Wedding

2020-04-04T11:40:43+12:00

Wairarapa Wedding Photographer - Crystal & Ruka Crystal & Ruka were going for a relaxed day, with a natural feel. The ceremony took place in  the middle of the camp ground which was surrounded by the most beautiful tall trees with a little river, just a short walk away. With them both being family orientated, it was mainly just family with a few close friends who they had known since school. Ruka and Crystal knew of each other during school, but didn't have much to do with each other until the later years where they grew close, through the connection of Ruka's sister. They were soon  inseparable, working, living and travelling the world together!! They had been together for 4 years when Ruka proposed, in their newly bought home. Crystal tells me - 'the proposal was just a very unromantic, unexpected knee drop in the lounge haha!' Sounds pretty [...]

Wairarapa Wedding Photographer - Ash & Littles @ The Landing Masterton A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to photograph the stunning Wairarapa wedding of Ash & Littles. Beautiful day, friends and family what more could you ask for? The locations were pretty special too - a helicopter ride meant that we were able to head up on to the family farm, to a spot very dear the the family. Thanks so much for having me along! x

Featherston Wedding Collective – Working Togther

2020-01-27T20:42:10+12:00

Featherston Wedding Collective The recent Featherston Expo was a wonderful opportunity to bring small business and community groups together to showcase what Featherston had to offer. It also gave the opportunity for people in the wedding industry to connect. Inspired by the expo, celebrant Rachel Clark approached myleslf along with Sarah of Lucalia Photography, Daria Borshcheva of Cake Lab NZ, and Bernadette Hoskins, The flower girl to meet and discuss the idea of working collaboratively. The Featherston Wedding Collective was born. The purpose of the collective is to promote our local Featherston businesses that are providing wedding services to couples getting married in Featherston or elsewhere in the Wairarapa. Members must have a personal or business address in the Featherston Ward. There is a lot of small businesses in the area and with a lot to offer! The fledgling collective would like to give a shout out to other [...]

Wairarapa Family Photographer – Chloe and family

2019-12-10T15:58:31+12:00

Wairarapa Family Photographer - Chloe and Family It that time of year when you can really make the most of outdoor photography sessions. Chloe contacted me as it was important for her to have some natural, relaxed, documentary style images of he family. She really wanted them taken outdoors, so I suggested that my lifestyle portrait session would be a perfect fit for her. We opted for Henley Lake in Masterston so that the girls had plenty of space to run around and explore. :)

Sunrise at Mt Holdsworth – Tararuas Range, NZ

2019-11-13T14:40:10+12:00

Sunrise at Mt Holdsworth - Tararua Range, NZ My sister was out visiting over winter with her family. She teaches photography to university entrance students in Exeter in the UK. I have often told her off my running & hiking trips up in the Tararuas, the nights spent out taking photographs of the night sky, so it was on the list of 'must dos' while she was here. We did a family trip along the Atiwhakatu Steam  track to spend the night at Atiwhakatu Hut, which the kids loved! But I really wanted to show her the magic of photographing the night sky and then watching the sunrise from up on the tops. Being a photographer herself, it wasn't hard to convince her at all! This first set of image was taken up at the High Ridge Turn off, on the track up to Mt Holdsworth summit. The first [...]

100 miles…..

2019-11-08T14:39:33+12:00

1oo miles……. I recently headed to Tarawera Ultra Marathon to crew and pace my friend for his 100 mile race. I decided to take my camera along, to get a few behind the scenes shots as I was staying with Paul Stevens and Lesley Park who were both tackling the miler. I was hoping to get some images of Wez (Lesley) finishing her race, but she was too blemming fast, and was well and truly in before I arrived back from my pacing duties! I find the idea of running for a 100miles fascinating – how and why does something like this even come about? So I decided to ask Lesley all about it. In typical Wez style I got some very blunt and hilarious answers….. Have you always been a runner? When did you start?  Yes, no, kinda? Got into running 5km in the mornings when I began [...]
