bride-and-groom-spring-blossomsI was so excited the day I picked up the phone and heard Kelsie’s voice on the other end telling me she was getting married. She’d been a bridesmaid at two Hawkes Bay weddings I’d previously photographed and I was both thrilled and honoured that I would now have the opportunity to capture her as a bride. Of course I had a pretty good idea she would be a simply stunning bride, but also, she is one of the sweetest girls you could ever hope to meet. Joe is one lucky man!

Kelsie & Joe had a beautiful spring wedding celebration at Crab Farm Winery in Hawkes Bay on the 24th October 2015.  They planned a day that would be just about the two of them – no bridesmaids or groomsmen – just the company of good friends and family. A day filled with love, friendship, good food and wine and an awesome party to finish the night off.

Kelsie & Joe thanks so much for choosing me to capture your day!
