Chris & Emily | New Zealand Lifestyle Photographer

“Listen. A healthy relationship isn’t living vicariously through one and other. True love isn’t someone being there at your side every moment of every day, but being free, and encouraged, to pursue your own passions, and then sharing in the spoils of your triumphs together.” – Beau Taplin

I’ve been dreaming about doing a photo session on my in-laws place since I first started taking photos. It is one of the most incredible places. And what better couple to pose for these photos than my sister-in-law & her boyfriend!

Located on the South Island, their farm boasts gorgeous mountain views & lush pastures; but the views were nothing compared to these two gems & their wee fur baby!

If their smiles don’t make you smile, I’m not sure what will. Now we are just waiting for Chris to take a knee so we can officially call him family!! In all seriousness, I just love these two and wish we weren’t a world apart. Thank you for being such great sports & allowing me to photograph in one of my dream locations.

If you are interested in having me take your photos in New Zealand (or anywhere around the world), please don’t hesitate to contact me. I LOVE to travel & we will be returning to New Zealand every year!!

You are my happy place. What a great wedding to end this year's wedding season, and I felt like this photo & her beautiful smile sums up the day ♡ Emotions ran high as Shelby was helped into her stunning dress & revealed herself to her father. We then made our way to the church...where there was a wonderful vibe, as friends and family filled the gorgeous space in Lacombe, Alberta. We were lucky enough to be able to get a few photos at the local corn maze and Shelby's grandparents farm. The fall colours came alive for a little sunset session... A fun filled dance began, and everyone was able to relax. I was honoured to capture su ...

"The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man" I have known Chelsea for a few years now, and travelled a bit together. With this, I found out how adventurous her soul is and it is something I truly admire. I am so happy that she has found someone to compliment her ever-seeking personality....and even more thrilled they asked me to photograph their wedding!! It was a perfect relaxed day, with a quaint audience at hand. It gives me goosebumps just thinking back to the day! Their ceremony was intimate and emotional. Afterwards we explored the mountain tops and found some great places for photos! If you a ...
Nathan & Megan | Mountain Engagement Session
"I got lost in him, and it's the kind of lost that's exactly like being found." - Claire Lazebnik It is sort of stressful for me never having met my clients prior to taking their photos, but it turned out to be a small world & it was almost like we knew each other! These two stuck it out in the cold & wind...all in the name of a good photo! Hair & Makeup: Sparrow Beauté Megan hired Nathan as her ferrier years ago & the rest, as they say, is history. We toured around Abraham Lake & got to know one and other a bit more. I always say you can tell how in love people are by how easy it is to take their photos.... & of cour ...
