Robyn and Kevin had the picture perfect summers day for their Wanaka wedding. Joined by close family and friends they celebrated their wedding in the gardens of the historic Cardrona Hotel. Friend Beverley conducted a heartfelt ceremony among the picturesque setting. Following the ceremony I captured some images with Kevin and Robyn’s family around the historic buildings. Thank you for choosing me as your photographer for such a special occasion.
A couple of weeks ago I traveled to my hometown of Wanaka to photograph Lauren and Corey’s lakeside wedding. The ceremony was held on the lawns of Edgewater Resort overlooking photogenic Lake Wanaka. Lauren and the bridesmaids looked stunning and Corey wasn’t too shabby either (considering he had ‘kissed’ the concrete two days prior!). Following the ceremony it was off to Wanaka station park for bubbles n beers and bridal party photos before returning to Edgewater where celebrations continued. Thanks to Dom Channon for assisting me and a huge thanks to Lauren and Corey for choosing me as your photographer.
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.
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 : )
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.

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!!
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 : )

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!
I have been working alongside Wanaka Stainless Steel the past few weeks capturing images of their contemporary Quirky outdoor furniture range. The fun yet practical designs make a stylish statement for any outdoor are. They are also durable and long lasting which is essential for our harsh Wanaka climate. This project has involved both daytime and evening shoots and has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
