Patina Photo: New Zealand Wedding Photographer of the Year









I've been so excited to share this shoot

Alex is beautiful and funny, a creative writer. Before the shoot, She told me she hadn't really done something like this before, and she was feeling little nervous - but that was what I loved, that she was real, vulnerable and brave.

I also got to work with an incredible team of beautiful-ness. It was amazing to get to work with these people who's skills I admire, and I felt like when we came together we were able to create something truly magical

Joy's house is incredible, the whole decor, the shape of the windows and curtains... It's like we had walked into a dream.
Our friend and fashion designer, Jane Street, created the most beautiful lingerie of chiffon, ribbon and lace, that fluttered and floated in the wind - all completely custom designed to flatter Alex.
The incredibly talented Emma Hough produced the most beautiful big soft curls, smokey graduated eyes working with Alex's own eyelashes, and lips that perfectly suited her look and skin-tone.
And the flower crown created by Twig & Arrow, topped it off. The real flowers looked, and although you can't tell from the photos, smelt amazing. I can't help feeling, flowers are the epitome of feminine.

This was everything I wanted to shoot, delicate, dreamy, and feminine

If this sounds like something you would love to do - get in touch!
I can't wait to do another one.
