On Saturday, we headed up to Pauanui beach on the Coromandel to photograph Kelly & Liam’s wedding.
It was a perfect blue day – just the right balance of summer warmth and fresh sea breeze!
We began the day with some getting ready shots at the resort they were staying at – and then headed down to the beach for the ceremony.
Afterwards, we went off for some photos with the bridal party, trying to find what shade we could to keep out of the blinding sun (and when we couldn’t get enough shade, I ended up holding a huge reflector over Kelly & Liam’s heads, while Holly & Amber shot away – I get all the fun jobs!!)
It was a fantastic, beachy, summery wedding – the epitome of a summer’s day in Aotearoa – which was quite fitting, as many of Kelly’s friends and family had traveled over from the US, so it was a welcome respite from the cold New Jersey winter!

Today we photographed Ainsley & Allanah’s wedding, with their ceremony at St Mary’s Cathedral – followed by photos around the Hamilton Gardens, and finishing up at the Ferrybank restaurant.
We had a great mixture of cloudy skies, and enough sun to keep things nice and warm – just right!
Once we arrived back at the Ferrybank after photos around the gardens, we saw the most fantastic afternoon light out front, so managed to sneak another 10 minutes of shooting in with just Allanah & Ainsley – some of my fav shots from the day, so well worth it!
Allanah’s veil was perfect for floating in the breeze – I love big, dramatic veils!
We were also stoked to have the lovely Holly back with us, after spending the last 5 months gallivanting around the US and Europe, she’s back with a vengeance (and a camera) and got right back into the swing of things today with some gorgeous shots.
It was a fantastic wedding – enjoy this little sneak peek of photos
