Wellington South Coast Engagement Session – Hayden & Cherie

It was one of those beautiful afternoons in Wellington when I met with Hayden & Cherie for their engagement session.
To be honest, when a couple is as in love as them, there’s really nothing left for me to do than to just click away and capture what’s happening in front of me.
I can’t wait to document many more amazing memories for these two on their wedding day.

Tarureka Estate Wedding: Francois & Hayley

wairarapa-wedding-photographer-01

Weddings are special because you’re celebrating two people who decided to spend the rest of their lives together.
But what makes it even more special to me are families.
It is so amazing how much love and joy can be felt in one day and that’s exactly why every time I start working on the photos from a wedding, there is a smile plastered on my face.
It’s like I’m reliving all those beautiful memories again. It’s definitely one of my favourite parts of my job.

Francois and Hayley got married last month in one of my favourite venues in the Wairarapa and their wedding day was nothing short of lovely.
Families and friends have traveled from around the globe to witness them say their I do’s and as always, I am so grateful I got to be a part of that day.

Francois and Hayley, thank you for letting us be a part of your day. You’re such amazing people and we wish you nothing but the best for your future.
Much love, Candy & Jay

Palais Schönburg, Vienna Wedding – Vintage Romantic Styled Shoot

When we started dabbling in photography 4 years ago, I never would have thought that it would take me to where I am now.
Somehow, following your dreams also comes with great self-doubt and fear of the unknown, especially when you’re only starting out.
But when you have people in your life who believe in you and want nothing for you but to succeed, nothing is impossible.
I should also add that my husband alone is equivalent to one army when it comes to supporting me and making sure I never give up.

This beautiful styled-shoot was organised by my amazing and talented sister, Katherine.
I’ve always considered myself lucky to be able to work with some awesome people in the industry – both here in New Zealand and Austria – so getting the opportunity to work with my sister was definitely a bonus.

Palais Schönburg was filled with so many intricate details, which set the mood for the entire shoot.
I’ve always loved everything vintage and romantic, so having this beautiful palace as the backdrop for this shoot was definitely a treat.
Add the group of these amazing vendors who made it all possible – and it was a dream come true!
