Catsby | Christmas cards

A annual photo project I’ve undertaken since 2013.

I attempt to pose my long suffering cat, (her name is Catsby, like Gatsby, it’s punny) in Christmas attire and take a photo of her for the annual card. I then find a terrible piece of ‘Merry Christmas’ clip art and smack that over the top, add a wee logo in the corner and tada! These get posted out to current and past clients, and who ever else puts their hand up for one. If you’d like to get one, or update your address if you’ve moved house, then fire me an email with the subject line ‘CATSBY CARD’ to hello@sarahmcevoy.co.nz.

Rivendell | Wedding Inspiration Shoot

The untouched wilderness of Rivendell, where New Zealand's native rainforest spills down steep gully's to the edge of the grey stone banks of the Hutt river, provided the moody location for our romantic wedding inspiration shoot. Sheltering from the rain, under a dripping tree canopy, in your lovers arms.

Inspired by the elegance of Anna Campbell's 'Coco' dress with it's delicate silver, pearl, and crystal beaded bodice, Madame Fancy Pants made custom chain and crystal earrings to complete Amy's look. Richard wears a classic black and white bow tie dinner suit from Crane Brothers. Finished with a wild bouquet by Swoon Flowers, of silvered eucalyptus foliage, with soft cream and dusty pinks blooms to warm, and a splash of mustard to compliment the stone.

Charlotte & Chris | Poronui Wedding

Some times you think booking a wedding a five hour drive away from the wedding the day before it is a bad idea. But then the Bride convinces you it will be worth it, so you finish shooting a mind blowing, epic wedding in Martinborough, caffeine up, and drive through the night to Taupo. And another mind blowing, epic wedding is waiting for you. And you think… YES, good choice Sarah.

Charlotte & Chris’ wedding is on Together Journal.

I know it’s a hard process when you have a creative vision and you need a team to bring it to life for you. These two got some really top notch vendors on board, and then they trusted us. Thank you Charlotte & Chris, x Sarah.
