I got so burnt photographing this wedding! The day was hot but thankfully the wedding was just outside of Waiuku at Castaways on Karioitahi Beach and the wind made the temperature bearable. This was a fun, relaxed wedding that focuses on celebrating Trist and Lei-Ana saying "I do" - the family feel and many laughs made this day a joy to photograph and the location just made it that much better. Because Trist had jandals and Lei-Ana had a short dress, I asked if they would be willing to go for a little hike. They said yes and we were up on the cliffs above Kariotiahi Beach in no time. Adventures always help make memories in my mind and hopefully Trist and Ana will remember this day forever.
I'm a small town New Zealand boy who grew up on a farm with a Dad who showed me life through a lens. He had a Pentax Film Camera that captured my eye and I've loved photography ever since.
