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 keep me safe. I'll keep you wild." - Atticus There is something so brave & romantic about eloping. I feel like it encompasses what a wedding is supposed to be; focusing on your love for each other & not getting caught up in everything else that usually comes with your big day. My love and admiration for Dan & Hadleigh grew throughout their day. My heart fluttered as they exchanged their personalized vows & had their first kiss. I couldn't help but smile behind the camera at the way they looked at one and other. Truly in love. Flowers by: Elements Florals Canmore   Helicopter: Rockies Heli Canada ...

"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.
