Helen & Jono | Cuba Street, Wellington Wedding

Helen & Jono were married at {Suite} art gallery, and had their reception at Loretta . These two are total gold, and so are the insanely supportive family they have surrounding them. The speeches were brilliant, laughter, tears, hugs, take a hot minute to compose yourself, brilliance. I loved taking them for a lap around Cuba street precinct for photos, and oh ma God the courtyard at {Suite} with the Ans Westra photo murals is amazingness. Do weddings your way folks!

Damien & Ameliaranne Ekenasio | Wellington Elopement

Ameilaranne and Damien very excitedly pulled together their secret little wedding in a week.  On a perfect winters afternoon, on Wellington's South coast they said their vows... they just couldn't wait to start the rest of their lives together!

I'm always so taken aback when I photograph tiny weddings at how instantly welcomed and embraced I am by everyone. It's impossible to do my usual fly on the wall routine when there are only a handful of people at a wedding, because they don't let me! But damn if they aren't some of the most affecting weddings I've documented.
