New Zealand Wedding & Elopement Photographer

- Based in Wellington. Travel anywhere for love....

I’m passionate about creative storytelling. Inspired by real people, moments and stories. I live for the adventure and have travelled all over New Zealand chasing sunrises and making memories. To me, I believe in capturing raw and authentic moments through my photography.  I love weddings and elopements! Telling unscripted love stories of couples and creating timeless photos is my favourite part of being a wedding photographer. It’s important to connect and experience a journey together.

 I’ve also worked with local and international brands as a commercial photographer. Brands that aim to push others to see the world a little differently than most. After all, life is just one grand adventure!

 Are you ready to tell your story?


& Emotive Storytelling



You deserve a wedding day that is entirely authentic to you. As your wedding photographer, I snap not only what the day looked like but also how it felt. You want to look at your photos years from now and relive all the big moments and little ones!


It may be capturing a wildly romantic adventure for your elopement wedding or using innovative narrative to bring your brand to life with epic visual content.

Are you thinking about learning photography? I’ve put my passion for it and the outdoors together by offering workshops that take your landscape photography to the next level!
