Lighthouse Editorial - Feat. in The Together Journal

Having only just moved to New Zealand, this styled shoot was the 1st actual gig of mine being a local Nelsonian. I was excited as a wedding photographer to mix and mingle with all the creative talent Nelson had to offer as there is a real neat buzz of creativity in this humble little town. Styled shoots are always a great opportunity to work with some really talented wedding vendors and shoot in some really beautiful locations. This was no exception... It was an absolute delight to be a part of this styled shoot at Nelsons famous Boulder Bank Light House. The location was sweet, the light was epic and the team of vendors were absolute stars to work with!

The awesome folk at The Together Journal have also been kind enough to feature this in their 3rd Issue and it looks smokin' hot! You can grab a copy online by clicking here.

Scott+Sarah || QUEENSTOWN CASUAL PORTRAITS

Back in March I touched down in Queenstown, NZ to hang with a bunch of other crazy photogs and to attended a workshop with one of my all time favourite photographers, Fer Juaristi. I was so inspired and challenged as a photographer. Hopefully from here on out you will start to see the impact his workshop had on me and my photography.

While we were there, I had the pleasure of meeting Scott+Sarah for a casual portrait session. Thanks for being such legends you 2!

Dean+Zoe || SYDNEY WEDDING

Dean+Zoe's wedding was an absolute dream. As a photographer, my camera-clicking hands wanted to applaud them both on their noteworthy detail and striking beauty; from the glamour of the bridesmaids beaded gowns to the striking decor at the reception. The thoughtfulness and design of this wedding was evident in every aspect. But more than the aesthetics, the high-spirited Bride and Groom were certainly the centre of the attention, with the warmth and joy they carried all day in their smiles. Nothing could dampen their sparkle, even an absolute downpour of rain straight after the ceremony!

There wasn't a single element about this day that didn't shine (apart from a few grey skies). An impressive banquet of food greeted guests at the reception and with happy hearts and full tummies, the celebration of the couple continued with dancing, laughter and more amazing food. Dean+Zoe, may the dancing, laughter and celebration of food be ever present in your beautiful marriage!
