Julia & Tom are such an incredible couple. The first time we spoke, the two of them were walking through Melbourne and I was sitting at home here in Wellington. Once we’d said our goodbyes and I’d switched off Skype I felt so excited! I just knew that their wedding day was going to be special.
And it was. Spending this day with them soaked in sunshine surrounded by a wonderful group of family and friends.
After the morning (hanging with some of the funniest groomsmen and bridesmaids I’ve ever met) Julia & Tom had decided to have a first look. This was the first time I’ve ever done one of these, and it could not have been more perfect!
These two were the sort of couple where I didn’t need to say a word to them as I photographed them, the real moments between them – that’s the moments I absolutely love to capture.
As I drove back to Wellington from the Wairarapa that evening, I felt like the luckiest person ever… It truly is days like these – the reason why I love my job so much.
