There is no more romantic place in the world to renew your love for one another than Paris. I teamed up with local celebrant Michelle Wahila from Ruffled by Grace to help this gorgeous American couple celebrate their many years together. I am hoping to be back in Paris for summer 2022 and will be taking bookings for all the special occasions worth documenting. I'm looking forward to capturing your vow renewal or engagement in front of the Eiffel Tower!
While on a trip back to New Zealand I was booked in to shoot this beautiful wedding on stunning farm south of Auckland. Though I don't traditionally shoot weddings, it was an honour to shoot this gorgeous ceremony between Helen and Rob and celebrate their special day with all of their friends. The rustic environment and dreamy scenery made the perfect back drop for some intimate couple shoots as well as some fun with the bridal party.
When the world was still open I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph this incredibly romantic French-Kiwi wedding in the western region of France. The international couple had their marriage ceremony in a traditional mayors office before moving to the most beautiful locations in Bretagne which closely resembled the shores of New Zealand. It was such an honor to be apart of this special day. x
Having known Tess since childhood, it was a real honour to be asked to be the photographer for her wedding at the gorgeous St Margrets Cafe in Auckland this year. Tess and Franco were blessed with beautiful (hot) weather for their special day in Karaka, which resulted in some pretty summery shots among the blooming flowers. It was a wonderful, relaxed day, filled with the love and support of family and friends, and a tonne of laughter as the event moved on. The bouncy castle was a seriously cool addition to the wedding that all got to enjoy! Thank you Tess and Franco for trusting me with capturing your wedding day in New Zealand. x Ainsley
It was such an honor to be asked to photograph the stunning wedding of Jackie & Stefon after photographing their engagement in Paris the year before. They hired a beautiful Chateaux near Vichy in the French countryside and invited their closest friends and family members to come from America to celebrate. It was a truly beautiful day in perfect romantic settings and it was such a pleasure to be apart of it. Congratulations to the happy newlyweds! xx
Sometimes I get to be apart of some very special and intimate moments and this day was one of them. It was such an honor to photograph the vow renewal ceremony between Sarah and Michael celebrating their 5-year anniversary in Paris. The ceremony was lead by the wonderful local ex-pat celebrant Michelle Wahila under beautiful blossoming cherry trees and the Eiffel tower in the background. It was a perfect day to celebrate the love of a wonderful couple still so (obviously) in love! xx
I photographed Niza and Jay on a rather cloudy Paris winter morning in December. We had to wait a little while for the sun to make an appearance but when it did we were soaked in warm light and the sky turned a gorgeous colour . These two were a ton of fun to work with, they were relaxed, happy, completely comfortable with each other and obviously totally in love. That shone right on through in the photos. Thank you Niza and Jay for the pleasure of working with you both. xx
It was an absolute privilege to be apart of this incredibly romantic day. Jeff and John were the sweetest couple, the love just oozed out of them straight on to film. We were blessed with sunny skies on this Autumn day in Paris. It was the perfect setting for the intimate ceremony between the two in a beautiful spot under the Eiffel tower.
Many happy wishes and a big thank you to the beautiful newlyweds for sharing your special day with me!
When Maggie approached me to be the photographer for their wedding, I was a little apprehensive to accept. Having never shot a wedding before, I was a little nervous at the prospect of being a part of such a huge day in two people's lives.
After knowing Maggie almost my entire life I was incredibly humbled to be asked to be apart of their romantic and close knit wedding day, and who am I to turn down the wishes of a bride to be.
High winds and cloudy weather gave a beautiful dramatic look to the images, a strong contrast to the incredibly relaxed vibe of the day. You can feel the love pouring out of these!
Thank you Maggie & Ollie for sharing your special day with me!
