I had such a fun time shooting Nilesh’s 21st birthday party last night. Held at Kelston Community Centre Hall, I LOVED the beautiful backdrop & decorations the family had thoughtfully set up on stage and at every table, the creative games throughout the evening, the awesome MC who hosted them, and the colourful attire everyone wore. 

The moment captured in the last photo here is my highlight. During the final round of musical chairs, the girl on stage sat on the chair first – but fell! The guy then quickly grabbed the chair, while helping the girl up. An unexpectedly hilarious moment.

Here are just some of the highlights of a night filled with celebration, family, friends, food, games and dancing. Happy Birthday Nilesh!

Last night, I had the honour of capturing special memories for Mary’s 21st birthday. As I walked into the lofty, open space that is the upstairs bar of Little Easy, Ponsonby, I thought to myself, “Wow, what a beautiful venue!”. The decor was bright and colourful, the light warm and ambient, and I LOVED the birthday girl’s sparkly outfit (pink and red with hearts, it matched her cake)! It was lovely to document this special occasion for Mary, one where all the guests evidently had a great time. Here’s some of the photos from what was a fun and enjoyable evening of celebration!

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!
