Celebrating Life

Last week to celebrate my birthday early, my family and I went on a mini holiday to Bali for a week.
It was our first time and it was beautiful.
The food, the colours, the sunsets and not to mention the people.
It was the perfect place to just pause, breathe and celebrate life.

You know the saying, “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”?
It couldn’t be more true.

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
