04.12.15 - Maple Lodge Wanaka Wedding

Lisa and Scott’s wedding day began with gale winds, horizontal rain, lightning and thunder! Thankfully as the day progressed so did the weather and by the time the outdoor ceremony came around the sun was shining. The ceremony was at the picturesque Maple Lodge gardens with George Konia as celebrant and Jodie Rainsford as photography assistant. Following the ceremony the bridal party visited some locations around Wanaka for relaxed, fun group photos and a bottle of bubbles. The reception was back at Maple Lodge where the celebrations continued with a delicious banquet, speeches and dancing. Thanks for an epic day Lisa and Scott, I hope you had as much fun as I did.

08.10.15 - Mountain Biking the Heaphy

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to mountain bike the Heaphy Track with the entertaining company of Matt Proctor and Dave Everton. If there was ever a mountain bike (or hike for that matter) that should be on your bucket list, this is it. Whatever your mtb passion be it downhill, cross country, or simply cruising through ancient rainforest, you wont be disappointed. The scenery is breathtaking including, limestone caves, pristine waterfalls, Nikau palm trees, pounding surf and more. I wont go in to too much detail as I am currently working on an article to be published later this year. Until then enjoy some of these images…

09.08.15 - Lake Wanaka family photo shoot

It’s not often I capture family photos but I was happy to for friends Adam and Bec’s. I guess the fact they have two cute well behaved children was a bonus! I like to keep these shoots as casual as possible and utilise the amazing outdoor environment we have here in Wanaka. In around an hour we had captured some relaxed candid photos of the family in several locations. Thanks for making it such a breeze guys : )

30.07.15 - Golden Lake Wanaka autumn wedding

The Autumn colours were in full bloom for Samantha and Laurence’s wedding day in Wanaka. The ceremony was held in the picturesque St Columbia’s church in the heart of Wanaka (directly opposite the home where I grew up!). Following the ceremony we flew up to Coromandel Peak for some formal photos. The beautiful Lake Wanaka backdrop was enhanced by the moody light piercing through the clouds. An April wedding in Wanaka wouldn’t be complete without those Autumn colours so we made our way to the Lakefront. Just as the sun was setting we discovered an ideal location where the ground was carpeted in a sea of golden leaves.
Thanks for letting us be part of your wonderful day Samantha and Laurence.

09.05.15 - Wanaka A&P Show Photos

The Wanaka A&P Show attracted over 35000 visitors this year! No surprise that it is one of the largest in the country, running over two massive days. There really is something for the whole family from entertainers and theme park rides to dog trials and trade displays. A highlight for me was capturing the younger generation having a blast…kind of reminding me of myself about 15 years ago!!

09.03.15 - Edible Estate Photography

Do you like local organic fruit, veg and meat? Do your children like animals? If yes then Edible Estate in Hawea Flat is well worth a look. Every weekend from 11am Edible Estate sells cheap locally grown organic produce. For the kids there is a petting zoo with a wide variety of friendly farm animals that can be hand fed : )

21.02.15 - Queenstown Stoneridge Heli Wedding

The other week I photographed a wedding for Aspiring Photography at Stoneridge Estate in Queenstown. Despite the ominous forecast the weather held out for Laura and Damien. The ceremony was held in the picturesque Stoneridge gardens followed by an epic heli trip up to ‘The Ledge’. Lake Wakatipu and the Southern Alps provided a stunning backdrop for photos. The reception was held back at Stoneridge where the celebrations continued. A fitting end to what one guest accurately described as a fairytale wedding. Thanks for an awesome day guys!

10.12.14 - Nichola and Andrew Wanaka Wedding

Having known Nic and Andrew for many years it was a privilege to be asked to photograph their Wanaka wedding. The weather gods turned on some epic weather which was ideal for the outdoor ceremony in the picturesque ‘Venue’ gardens. Following the ceremony the bridal party were escorted in style by classic cars for formal photos. We had plenty of laughs at some of their favourite locations including a mandatory brewski at the ‘huts’. Thanks again for an awesome day guys!

11.11.14 - Lifestyle photo shoot Wanaka

Last week I worked on a small lifestyle shoot for Aaron and Kate Callaghan. They both work within the health industry and were seeking some fresh portrait imagery for their new websites. Wanaka turned on ideal spring weather and Aaron and Kate were a breeze to work with. To mix it up we started with a couple of more formal photos before a quick dressing room change and some lifestyle portraits down by the lakefront. If you get a chance check out Kate’s website at www.theholisticnutritionist.com, Aaron’s coming soon.
