Mike and Rhoda feel in love with New Zealand while on holiday and like many that now live in Wanaka, decided to move here.I had the privilege of photographing them with their extended family who were visiting from the States. For those who know Mike, he never does anything in halves.  A full family lifestyle shoot was booked including a helicopter ride to Coromandel Peak at the top of Mt Roy.  We arrived at Wanaka Helicopters and Mike had a small chat with the pilot …Well the trip to the top of Mt Roy was soon extended to include the pilot's favorite location, Lochnagar,   To View More >>

As I arrived home I decided that a mood change was required and the morning was too beautiful to be wasted, so I grabbed my camera and my hairy children (the dogs) and off to lake we went.

What is it about fun and laughter that is so contagious?   Justin and Sharon’s wedding had such fun and hilarity that it still makes me smile whenever I think of it.  I started the morning capturing Sharon getting ready and the giggles started there. The fun intensified at the ceremony at Edgewater Resort, with an awesome boogie down the aisle (one of my favourite shots). Love and gales of laughter punctuated the whole day and being able to capture such joy in their photos was a real treat.  This beautiful wedding was about them, their love for each other and for life itself.

Cheng and Shawn –a highly intelligent, motivated and dedicated couple (Cheng was studying on the day of her wedding) also gentle, gracious and very much in love.   Cheng walked down the isle of St Peter's Anglican Church radiantly beautiful  in a sublime lace dress...and her shoes – oh those shoes...wow!  Their ceremony was filled with love, followed by a reception at Stoneridge Estate where family and friends were treated to stunning surroundings and views. On a way to the ceremony we made a small stop off to Lake Wakatipu where ‘those shoes!’ To View More >>
