On July 20th we photographed an incredible winter wedding in Auckland. The weather report was gloomy but we dodged the raindrops and laughed our way through a magical day. Thank you to Andrew and Becks for inviting us to share your joy. I think anyone can see from the look in your eyes that you are forever.
I reckon that if we could stop to take time to look at the smaller things, the world might not be as hectic as it is today. This is sunset at Pohara. Worth a visit.

Hello everybody, I’m back.
Cape Reinga Lighthouse. My wife loves this place so much. I think it’s all right.
This is my latest commercial work, advertising Spellbound, a fantastic cave trip in Waitomo. When I was a younger photographer I read that there are two different kinds of photographer, those that take photos and those that create them - the latter are often more memorable. This shot required a team in wetsuits with me but they’ve obviously vanished from the final image, which is two shots merged together with a little bit of magic. No extra glowworms were added in the creation of this photo.
