International Wedding Photographer of the Year 2021 – Finalist

International Wedding Photographer of the Year 2021 - Finalist

A bit of a pat on the back moment! Super stoked to see this photo of mine on the big stage. It was named as a Top 15 finalist in the International Wedding Photographer of the Year 2021 competition for the epic location category. This was from Ryan and Viktoria’s elopement wedding in Mount Cook, New Zealand. Great wee high amongst the rocky start to the wedding season due to the ole C word!

Ryan + Viktoria Elopement Wedding, Mount Cook

Intimate winter wedding at Chateau Tongariro

Francesca + Jeremy

A winter wedding in New Zealand is almost like something out of a fairytale. Given it’s a season filled with fickle weather that usually couples avoid, this lovely pair decided to go against the norms. Francesca and Jeremy escaped the urban jungle of Auckland and decided on having an intimate wedding in the mountains. Surrounded only by their closest family and little daughter, they exchanged vows at the historical Chateau Tongariro Hotel. We even adventured up to Mount Ruapehu for some quick snaps in the moody snow before cold kicked in. Check out their winter wedding below!

Ashleigh and Glenn’s beautiful Coromandel beach wedding

Glenn + Ashleigh

Ashleigh and Glenn decided to have an intimate Coromandel beach wedding. A trip down memory lane, the pair had met from a classic Facebook request after a night out. Sparks flew immediately. Having travelled the world, the white sandy beach of Pauanui was still home. The perfect place for the dream wedding that Ashleigh had always wanted. Some of the best vendors came together to make it all possible. The sun was out and the tissues were ready. What an incredible day it was!
