for the love of shoes…

for a girl who spends most of her days in flip flops or rubber boots, you might never know i have far too many pairs of high heels tucked away in my cupboard upstairs. Rural life doesn’t afford a lot of opportunity to strap them on. Life has it’s pros & cons. All this to say i do love shoes. Especially statement shoes – shoes with character & style, shoes with a voice. And i love what these wedding day shoes are saying…View full post »

jala & ken

i love weddings. Truly. I believe in them… in wholeheartedly committing ourselves to our partner, speaking our vows, our promises, our hopes, witnessed by our family & friends, & celebrating the love we all share in the hours around that. It’s such a meaningful time, when our hearts open wide & so much seems possible. I am deeply fortunate to get to do what i do… to capture so many of those amazing moments in photographs. jala & ken rented the big house nextView full post »

anna & andy

this was a very fun day. Truly. Anna & andy were both so at ease on their wedding day, delighted to simply be surrounded by their families & friends, at andy’s parents’ beautiful home in union bay, over looking the straight. The day kept threatening rain & the wind blew steadily in the early afternoon, but by the time they met at the aisle, everything had settled & all was calm & sweet. Much like the spirit of their day… a whole lot of sweet, heaps of loveView full post »

christiane & simon

so often words fall short when i try to describe a couple’s day. My experience of wandering through such a powerful, intimate & celebratory day with 2 people so deeply in love, surrounded by the support & caring of their family & friends & all wrapped within an environment that’s meaningful to them, is hard to express in words. And so it is today, as i post photos from christiane & simon’s amazing wedding. How to describe accurately the buzz, excitementView full post »

vicky & dan

vicky & dan were teaching in a remote town in china this last year. So all our contact before their big day was via the internet. I am increasingly more grateful for the www for connecting me with clients. It’s lovely to meet couples before their wedding day & engagement sessions are a fabulous way to connect more intimately beforehand. And there is also a special magic that can happen when we all just arrive & open up to sharing their incredible day together. And so it wasView full post »

keeley & chris

i’m thinking back on keeley & chris’ day. Searching for the words to describe how i witnessed their walk into marriage. And i’m finding it difficult to describe ‘magic’… that vibrant-amazing-something that happens sometimes when two people, their family & friends, gather to celebrate their love for & commitment to one another. It’s like wonder, delight, sparkle, calm, sweetness & heart-wide-open wonderment all rolled into one incredibleView full post »

kelly & dean

sometimes it’s hard to find the words to describe a day, a celebration, the people gathered. And so it is with kelly & dean. My writing won’t capture the richness of the moments of delight & wonder, the ease & grace of these 2 amazing people ‘finally’ (they said over & over) walking into marriage, of all the silliness & laughter, the lightness & fullness of the love shared by & with family & friends. What i can say, is how honoured i wasView full post »
