Aah, Summer! Take us back! What a delight it was to photograph Jacki and Rogan recently! Their wedding was held at a super-cute little family bach in Waihi Beach. Coralee went to high school with Jacki, so it was also a fun-filled day of re-unions for her too! It was a perfectly relaxed summer afair. The ceremony took place on the front lawn and afterwards guests enjoyed picnicking on the lawn as we headed across the road to the beach for a few bridal party shots. Just around the back of the bach was an incredible marque where Jacki, Rogan and their wonderful friends and family ate, partied and danced the night away. It was an epic day, with an amazing couple in the most stunning location. Congrats Jacki and Rogan! We love you guys! C&A xx
Where do we start with Olivia and Travis?! We had such a wonderful day filled with smiles, love and laughter! A serious highlight for us this summer. Liv and Trav and their incredible friends and family just had the most warm, friendly, loving vibe at this wedding. I suppose it’s pretty much just a reflection of them both as a couple! Liv lights up a room when she walks in, and Trav was looking dapper in that suit could melt any heart! Of course, the ties (and many other things for that matter) were lovingly handmade by Liv! These guys have such an eye for detail and everything came together so perfectly- from the light blue kombi van, to the table centre pieces, beautiful flowers, bunting and hay bales to the family farm in Karaka it was held!…this wedding was perfectly rustic. Perfect in every way! I think we might just have died and gone to photographer’s heaven for the day :-)
A few images from this wedding were featured in Issue Two of Magnolia Rouge Magazine – The Rustic Issue. But we couldn’t resist sharing a whole heap more here for you to enjoy! Liv and Trav’s wedding was one that we can’t really do justice with just words…..so check it out below!
This is a post dear to my heart. A few weeks back I photographed my older sister and her beautiful family. This should have been done months ago, but with the birth of her twin boys finding the time is hard! Doesn’t she look amazing for having recently had twins?!
Now, I am by no means a family portrait photographer! Children really are such a challenge to photograph… so unpredictable! I photographed, while Alex provided entertainment for the kids with toys! We also had Spencer (our wee dog) with us, which helped too- oh how they love Spencer!
Just yesterday we returned to the cold, damp shores of Aotearoa following an incredible few days spent in Samoa. We’re actually still just in that stage where it all kind of feels like it was one big dream. One big, unreal, sunny, warm, pool-bar, tropical fruit-filled dream! We were lucky enough to be there to celebrate with Katie & Hadyn for their wedding ceremony on Wednesday at Aggie Grey’s Resort. Because we can’t really find the words to express how grateful we are that they invited us to come photograph them – and because we really just can’t hold off sharing a few frames from the day any longer – here’s a wee peek into Wednesday’s tropical celebration….Notice that epic golden Samoan sunset glow on their faces in the last photograph!? Oh!, take us back!
These guys were married last Saturday. It did not stop raining all day!
You can’t control the weather but you can control what you make of the day! These guys didn’t let a few rain drops spoil their moods!
