Arhhhhh.....autumn colours! You go past a fun family photoshoot outdoors in autumn. Making the most the wonderful colours, soft light and a great opportunity to throw all the leaves around! What kid, big or small doesn't love a good old leaf throwing fight! Sharisse x

Newborn Photographer Wairarapa – Jen & Family


Its always a pleasure to catch up with my families and meet their new additions. Jan and Andrew came along to see me with Elsie, and this time it was Bryn's turn in the limelight. I really loved seeing how Elsie was such a loving and protective big sister. Sharisse x

Martinborough Commercial Photographer – Whitimanuka Retreat


Can you come and photograph our new homestay? We really want to show off what is has to offer, including the amazing night sky? Yes please! And unfortunately for me, it meant having to spend the night there as shots were required at 8pm, midnight, 5 am....... you get the idea! I can tell you it was such a hardship - a night of peace and quiet in a stunning location, in a wonderful new homestay, photographing the night sky and then hopping back inside to sit by the cozy fire. Its a tough gig, but someone had to do it! And how could I forget the super friendly hosts and the delicious platter! Yeah, it was tough all right. lol! Seriously, if you are looking for a getaway and peace and quiet with stunning views, and a fantastic stargazing spot, this is for you. And did I mention [...]

Black Barn Tuahiwi Wedding Photographer – Kirsten & Graham


OMG - this wedding was so much fun! I had a ball working with these guys on their wedding, and it was super fun to work with lots of people I know! I know Kirsten and Graham through running Ultra Marathons - I have met them many time, usually with us looking bedraggled and worst for wear, along a trail somewhere at silly o'clock! So, I was super excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding! Kirsten and Graham and both vegans and the keeping their environmental impact to a minimum was super important to them, so everything was re-purposed and reused as much as possible for the decorations and the guests were treated to a vegan feast to die for! The location was a key for Kirsten and Graham. Seeing as both Kirsten and Graham are Ultra Distance Trail runners, they both have spent many,many hours running [...]

Wairarapa Family Photographer – Katie & Family


Winter is such a fabulous time for family photographs! Don't be put of by the cold weather - its a great excuse to rug up and enjoy some of that beautiful, soft winter light! I have photographed this gorgeous family a few time s now - each when their boys were newborns. This time, it was time for something different so we went for a documentary approach to their family photographs - which was great for giving their two energetic boys lots of space and time to run around and have fun! Living on a  lifestyle block that we had the perfect backdrop for their session. Sharisse x

Zealandia Wedding Photographer – Bron & Steph


Bronwyn & Steph had been guests at a wedding I had photographed a couple of years ago, so it was wonderful when they got in touch to ask me to photograph their wedding day. Zealandia was their venue - they chose to hold their celebration here as it was important for them know that they get to hold their celebration in a beautiful place while helping to do a little bit of good for the native flora and fauna. I think that's a pretty special reason.

Wairarapa Family Photographer – The Williams Family


When Katie told me that they were based on a sheep and beef farm out at Tinui, I knew that we wouldn't need to go anywhere else to capture their family photographs. And it didn't disappoint! I loved hanging out with this wonderful family and getting to see what they get up to as a family out on the farm.

Family Photography Wairarapa/Wellington – The Smith Family


I have been lucky enough to photograph this beautiful family over the years - each pregnancy & newborn session with all three children. Its always an absolute please to see how they have grown and welcome the newest family member. This time we did things a little differently and opted for an outdoor lifestyle on their wee block of land, where they have just finished building their new home, nestled in among the olive trees. I always love the natural flow of shoots like this - giving the children time to be themselves and play in an environment where they feel so at home.

Masterton Wedding Photographer – Anna & Tyla


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


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.
