And then the sun came out......

Being an photographer in Wellington can be a little tricky sometimes. The weather can be pretty unpredictable - it's going to rain - no wait, now it's not. Gale force winds - but only really in coastal areas....... It's going to be sunny........ until I grab my camera and then it will rain!! URGH!

But sometimes you get perfect conditions when you take a chance - when the forecast is saying rain on a cold winters day but you and an amazing couple decide its not raining at a certain time "so lets just give it a go" and everyone can be a bit flexible - you may just get the perfect golden winter light.

And while it may have been a bit cold the lovely Alex and Becky had each other to snuggle for warmth during their engagement shoot xx

The Wild Wellington Coast

The gorgeous Julia and Dave were married last year in Central Otago but really wanted to have a series of wedding photos on the wild Wellington coast which they loved exploring.

Having recently moved away from Wellington they chose a date to have their sitting and travelled up for the weekend. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on their side with FREEZING cold temperatures and sharp needle like winds whipping the coast.  But did that phase this fearless couple?


Completely in awe of Julia and Dave. They spent the shoot laughing and smiling and having a great time. I guess when the weather gives you a lemon you make your own sunshine xx



A Bright Winter Morning

Holly and Cody were married recently in a small registry office ceremony and didn't have a professional photographer on the day. So Holly contacted me to arrange a photo session for the two of them and also for their gorgeous pup Dakota.

On a spectacularly sunny but freezing day in Upper Hutt we captured this beautiful family in the glorious winter light.
