Our Cosy Wellington Getaway

Food, Lifestyle, Personal

Hi friends, I hope you’re having a wonderful and relaxing Easter weekend!

Last weekend, my fiancé and I went on a little weekend getaway to my favourite city and second home: our capital, Wellington, New Zealand. We stayed two and a half days, which while short was plenty of time for us to see an incredible exhibition, eat delicious food, rest and recharge, and simply enjoy each other’s company. The purpose of our trip was to see the Terracotta Warriors at Te Papa Museum and celebrate my fiancé’s birthday. Happy Birthday, my love!

My year-long lesson in failure, success, & self love

Lifestyle, Personal

Yesterday I woke up to some brilliant news. My phone rang the moment I hopped out of bed; a moment of divine synchronicity. On the other end: a job offer!!!

It was the light at the end of a tunnel that had seemed to go on for a long time. You see, this is more than just a job offer to me.

For many people, a new job isn’t that hard to get. Even for me, a new job wasn’t that hard to get – it always only took a month or two. That is, until this year.

Yesterday, I had the honour of capturing lifelong memories of Ryan & Cornelia’s big day. Celebrated at Hedges Estate in Waiuku, the day was filled with endless sunshine, nature, love, and good vibes. From the early morning capturing the bridal party getting ready, to the celebrations, cake, and spontaneous mini-photoshoots that followed, the wedding was a truly magical day for all who attended. I absolutely loved capturing the warm smiles and radiant joy of the bride & groom along with their dear family and friends. Congratulations, Ryan & Cornelia! It was an honour to capture this special day for you to look back on for years to come.

I recently captured the joy of Katherine & Zach’s engagement in a photoshoot in Takapuna. Inspired by engagement shoots that were natural & earthy, we found Killarney Park to be the perfect location for lush greenery and woods.What’s more, Lake Pupuke was right beside the park, so we made good use of the gorgeous lake and pier. All in all, the scenery definitely made for cozy, down-to-earth vibes, and I loved capturing these small, sweet and intimate moments!
