We were thrilled to be asked to photograph Jarrah and Mike’s  wedding at Founders –  they are such a special young couple – and the whole day was a complete joy  – Founders is  such a fantastic venue and I love Old St Peters …..it is such a quaint little church.  The day began with Jarrah getting ready at her mum’s home in Atawhai which resulted in some of my favourite photographs from the day –  Jarrah and her mum Shary together.  Graeme also had lots of fun with the boys!

After the service  –  The grounds of Founders are so beautiful  it was not hard to choose some great spots for portraits of Jarrah and Mike.   We then hopped into our cars and went out to Nelson’s iconic Bolderbank for some spectacular shots of the rocks and sea and then a quick stop at Miyazu Gardens for some fun shots.   Later in the evening we managed a few more shots of Jarrah dancing outside during the ‘golden hour’ as sunset brought an end to what had been a perfect summers day. The party continued into the evening with speeches, cutting the cake and a packed dancefloor!

Jarrah put so much thought into the day, handcrafting the gifts for her mum and bridesmaids and all the lovely little touches at the reception including the petals on the magnificent wedding cake.

Thank you so much for asking us to photograph your day – Graeme and I will always treasure our memories of this wonderful day.


Dear Vicki and Graeme

You really went above and beyond!         Thank you both for the outstanding job you did  photographing our wedding. We couldn’t have been happier.

Having an engagement shoot was such a great way to prepare us for our big day…… You made us feel so relaxed and comfortable.

Our wedding photo album was absolutely gorgeous and was so professionally laid out. It was so much fun to look though and took us straight back to our wedding day. We loved all of our photos – it was so hard to choose.  You truly captured the emotion of all the special moments.

Our parents loved their albums too.

We would highly recommend you to any bride and groom who want amazing photos and service.

We look forward to using your services again in the future for family photos when the time comes.

Lots of love,    Jarrah and Mike
