Boomrock Styled Wedding Shoot

Boomrock-Wedding-Photographer02
What happens when the wedding season has finished and us vendors have a tonne of ideas in our heads for a shoot?
We collaborate, and we have the most amazing time doing it.
It’s really also the most perfect excuse to just hang out and have a good laugh..
surrounded by a whole lot of pretty, that is.

Sometimes I still feel like pinching myself because I can’t believe I actually get to do this for a living.
This journey has brought us to so many beautiful places, and we have made so many wonderful  friends and have met the most incredible and talented people.
Yes, it’s challenging at times but seeing what we’ve accomplished definitely makes it all worth it.

This shoot was planned in only 3 weeks but thanks to all these creative geniuses, everything came together perfectly.

Brackenridge Wedding: Marc & Jaana

Wairarapa-Wedding-Photographer-Brackenridge01I first met Marc and Jaana in February last year. I remember meeting Marc first because Jaana was coming from a meeting outside the city.
Naturally I asked Marc how he would describe Jaana to me and his eyes just lit up.
He told me that she’s like Beyonce, fierce and just strikingly beautiful.
So when Jaana entered the room, I knew right away it was her. Marc’s description of her was just spot on.

Marc and Jaana’s wedding day was all about family and celebrating their love for each other.
I just loved how their 3 kids played a huge part in this celebration, my favourite was when Isaiah, her eldest, walked her down the aisle and gave her away.
The day simply couldn’t have gone any more perfect than it did.

Marc and Jaana, thank you again for letting us document this day for you. We wish you both and your family a life filled with many more adventures and laughter.
Much love,
Candy & Jay

Wellington Engagement Session: Lyall & Kate

I love engagement sessions. It’s the most perfect time to get to know my couples and talk about anything.
It’s just like hanging out with friends and taking photographs of them at their most candid.

A couple of weeks ago, I got to spend some time getting to know Lyall and Kate during their engagement session.
It was a beautiful afternoon filled with lots of laughter and the most amazing Autumn light.
