Nick & Sally

When Sally walks into a room, you can’t help but smile.  Her contagious smile and infectious laugh are enough to brighten ANYONES day and give you warm fuzzies!  Nick matches Sally in every possible way, the smile, his enthusiasm for life ….. Together, they are an unstoppable force.  They are soul mates in every sense!  Best friends for over ten years, this is one marriage I know will last forever. Married at the most perfect location, Mount Soho Winery Queenstown, it might have been close to freezing, but these guys are tough! …. ready to take on the world.
Nick and Sally, photographing  your wedding was one of the greatest honours I have had….surrounded by the most loving family and friends, I simply don’t have the words to express how special you both are, and how EPIC your day was! So THANK YOU!  It’s gonna be tough to beat this one!

Miami Engagement

This recent engagement session was one of my all time favourites.  Heather and Scott are seriously fun to be around and just a dream to photograph, they really made my job pretty easy!  Another couple who met on a yacht in the Caribbean, locked eyes, and a few years later are about to tie the knot!
We started our day at Vizcaya museum and gardens, a setting where every step is a feast for the eyes, and transports you somewhere other than Miami.  We ended the day in the funky Wynwood art district,  where graffiti artists make your mouth drop with their crazy good talent!
Congratulations again Heather and Scott!




Married in Vegas


When one of my closest friends decided to get married in Vegas I could barely contain myself with excitement……Naturally I conjured up all sorts of images in my ‘way too excited head’ of what it was going to be like…… Images of movies watched and debaucherous stories told.  I began to count down the days, and by the time I arrived in ‘Las Vegas’ I knew Missy and Aaron had made the perfect choice!  A small intimate wedding with their closest friends and family in a city that has a rhythm all of it’s own.
It’s hard to believe 2 years has nearly passed since you 2 were married in the desert.  So much has happened, and you’ve welcomed a new baby boy into the world!  Missy and Aaron thank you for letting me photograph your story in Vegas.   I’ll never forget the belly clutching laughs (mainly thanks to Kent) and the most perfect few days with amazing friends.
