Being a Waiheke local i know lots of great places on the island for photographing, and am used to working at the many gorgeous venues, and alongside other Waiheke wedding suppliers.
I shoot in a relaxed, documentary style, to capture as honestly as i can your Wedding day from the details, the big moments.. the unguarded candid moments, the emotions of you and the people you cherish.
For your creative bridal portrait session this will have more direction from time to time when needed.
I am passionate about wedding photography, and my aim is for you both to look back and re-live your day through my photos.
Once we chat about your day, and if you wish to book with me i then send through a contract to sign & also require a 50% booking fee to secure your date with the balance due by the week of the wedding.

Portraits / Slice of Life Family Sessions:
With Portrait sessions i like to discuss with you as an individual, a couple or a family how you like to roll as this helps me with ideas of locations that reflect who you are and what you love. I like to try and capture an essence of you in an envirnonment you feel comfortable in, i don't use props or say "smile" (unless you are wee) ..
My Family portrait sessions are a mix of at your home and at a location that means something to you, chosen by you. I believe your home at this moment tells so much, as this is where memories are made.
Much like my wedding style it is a mix of candid shots and directed shots..( but no hands on shoulders here folks!).
"What to wear!?"... you should all feel relaxed in your chosen outfit, try to avoid lots of clashing patterns and startched collars ;), I am not looking for you wearing your sunday best ...and if the little one has a strict super hero dress code feel free to take that as a lead! You can always bring a change of outfit along too if you want something more classic.
There will be time for individual portraits and group shots and details at the house ...like the bedroom door sign, favourite toys or perhaps the treehouse that dad just built..
Sometimes it good to do an activity if its something you normally do as a family..like baking or a bikeride/ camping in the garden.
Its about capturing this moment in time and telling your unique story as a family as honestly as i can.
