Jessica + David // Hamilton Gardens Engagement Session

These two will be married on Saturday and I cannot wait! A storm was forecast was our engagement session in Hamilton Gardens, but it never did join us and instead we had blue skies and some really beautiful light. I could photograph this couple forever, and would easily have spent longer in the greenhouse despite the fact we had only a few moments until another bride was due to arrive! We got so many gorgeous portraits all the same, and the light rain that did arrive led to some romantic portraits under the large trees for shelter...

Love notes...

Love notes from clients make my heart swell - I am so blessed by the new relationships I build and the journeys my job takes me on...  I don't share enough of these but it's these little gestures that mean the world to me and make my day each and every time x

There are a number of posts I have been meaning to share and this poor blog of mine has been neglected of late so more to come soon including a glimpse of the gorgeous products I have been busy creating x

wedding thank you

Michelle + Robert // Married at Simunovich Olive Estate

Here is a glimpse into what was a truly beautiful and moving wedding! Michelle looked so gorgeous in her soft pink vintage-inspired gown, which perfectly complimented the soft greens of the Simunovich Olive Estate (also known as Bracu) nestled in the Bombay Hills. Michelle and Robert are absolute sweethearts and I was unsurprised to find their family and friends to be just as lovely. A little rain wasn't going to dampen their spirits and actually made for a really charming and romantic day. Their day also encompassed a traditional Chinese tea ceremony which I was so thrilled to be present for. I feel so honoured to have shared in their wedding and I am so excited for their future together... marrying your best friend really is one of the best ways to start!

Michelle + Robert // ENGAGED

I just LOVE this couple! Not only are they both super sweet, but we have so much in common! Michelle is a designer with an incredible eye for detail, and I'm dying to see more of her 'touches' on the wedding day. I was so honoured to be invited along with them to visit their venue last weekend, as they know I am still rather new to the Auckland area and had yet to see their gorgeous venue first-hand! I'm bursting with excitement, as I'm sure they are too!!
