Bride Tribe - by She Said Yes | New Zealand Wedding Photographer

When the beautiful Megan from She Said Yes asked me to photograph the launch of the Bride Tribe I knew this was an event not to be missed. She wanted a safe place for brides to get away from the hype, media and advertisements of everything you "need" and "must have" for a wedding. Its no secret that the average price of a wedding is expensive which is sitting around the $30,000 mark in New Zealand (basically a deposit on a house!).

I really love it when I meet couples who aren't afraid to just be themselves and are excited to get stuck in with their engagement photoshoots. Of course for most people they are a little nerve wracking at first - especially if you have never had one before, but nerves quickly turn to laughter after I bring out my super lame jokes.

I’ve said it before, I love winter weddings, and it is always a risk when you decide to have one! But for Sophie and Chris, it was a risk worth taking. It was such a stunning day in Taupo for their wedding, hardly a cloud to be seen.  

The brightness and ease of the day fit the personality of the couple and their bridal party. I did the engagement shoot for Sophie and Chris in July and it struck me then how relaxed and easy going they both were. Their wedding day was no different.

Jakalah greeted me with a hug as soon as she opened the door; and the whole bridal party made me feel more like a friend. A couple days before the wedding a large storm system passed through, I think we all thought that we were in for some rough weather on the day but nature had a different plan in mind.

The Power of Her Workshop - Queenstown | Auckland Wedding Photographer

I have been following Danelle Bohane for a few years now, I originally saw her work back in 2012 when a friend got married, and instantly fell in love with her work. For me, continued education is a large part of my business, I like to make sure I am giving my clients the best quality photography I can give. Learning and self-reflection is a large part of keeping fresh in the industry, and there is no shortage of inspiration. So when Danelle announced a new wedding photography workshop (AND in Queenstown) I didn't hesitate to go and book my spot.
