Authentic rustic DIY country wedding - Char & Russ at Taniwha Gardens

The first thing I ask a couple when they are considering working with us on their wedding day is ‘what elements are most important for you?’ This helps me understand who they are as a couple and how Andrew and I can work with them to create bespoke photography that reflects all their priorities.

Natalia & Andy's nod to tradition at St Matthew's Church & Sileni Winery

MADDOX - 11 MONTHS

As a Hawke's Bay photographer who adores storytelling and emotional connections between people, it doesn't get much better than having one of my couples get in touch a few years after their wedding to ask me to spend some time with them documenting the next big milestone in their lives, the arrival of children.
