"I actually spent the other night going through wedding photos again and all those emotions of excitement came rushing back! That's how amazing the shots are. Clint and I are, to this day, so stoked that our cyberspace paths crossed with yours because we could not have found a more perfect artist for the job!! Both Clint and I wanted a very chilled vibe to our day which was reflected and captured through the photographs...you were exactly what we were looking for.....the EPITOME of chilled, un-staged, go-with-the-flow good-times haha!
From the get-go things were perfect...a quick email introduction which was then followed by a few prompt and professional email exchanges, two or three blurry (damn dodgy London cafe wi-fi network) Skype sessions with our little man hitting the "call end"button and our eventual face-to-face meeting in a cute Onehunga cafe 4 days before the wedding. That eventual meeting left us on the biggest high in the lead up to our wedding! We were having venue dramas beforehand and everything was heading south very quickly but then we caught up with you that day in Onehunga and you were calm and happy and spoke about your love of rum and group selfies, you spoke about YOUR excitement of being able to shoot our day and immediately thereafter, everything was great again! The nerves vanished and you made us excited again! You were the perfect man for the job, we already knew this after stalking your work on Instagram, but that catchup in Onehunga confirmed that and left Clint and I feeling like we could have literally gotten married in the middle of nowhere and it would've been great because we knew, after meeting with you, that our photos (the most important aspect of our wedding, to us) were going to be epic and memorable!
And that's exactly what we got....an all or nothing photographer who got drenched in sea water, who got sun burnt due to transport issues....you hopped into a water taxi with us on a scorcher of a day in Hahei and captured the realest (most HILARIOUS!!) photos of us exiting and entering that same water taxi at our ceremony destination. At the reception you joked and blended so well with the guests who all absolutely loved you, some even thinking that you were a guest yourself. You laughed at/with us during our portrait photos - when both Clint and I felt so awkward being "sexy/lovey dovey" but somehow got us to do what we needed to do and produced one of my absolute favourite shots of us dancing like absolute idiots on the grass - we felt comfortable and that in itself is an amazing skill that not many people have. You also partied well into the night, capturing some of the more "lively" pics towards the end of the night...a true professional. And our end package, what we received in the week or so after our wedding, can only be described as amazing...the photos surpassed all our expectations...they were natural - cute ugly face cries, looks of fear jumping into the sea water, glazed eye exchanges towards the end of the night, butt gropes on the dancefloor, looks of infatuation and adoration shared between couples, scrunched up nose laughs...all so real!! The variety of shots were insane!!! We still struggle with deciding which ones to get developed for our house because we want them all! Thank you so much for being our eyes on the day - there are so many intimate and roudy moments that we would have missed had it not been for you. We cannot recommend you enough to any potential brides and grooms in years to come - you're the real deal!!!"
