Wellington wedding party, captured by wanderlusting lovers

What to expect.

This could be your first time hiring a photographer or it could be 10th time. no matter what it is I think it is so important to get to know what you are getting yourself into as every photographer is different and I want to make sure we are a good fit so I can give you have the most incredible experience, an experience that is designed around your love.  

I'm not like a regular photographer

I'm a cool photographer 

First, if you don't get that reference I think we are off to a bumpy start haha!

Second, if you want me to turn up, snap some shots of you in front of a gorgeous location, or be silent and stay out of your comfort zone on your BIG day, I don't think we will be a good fit. Let's leave awkward staged photos in the 90s where they belong, and just bring the good stuff from the 90s like Clueless quotes!

I don't just want to be another vendor that turns up does their job and leaves, another vendor that you'll forget their name in a years time, I want to be that vendor that give you the giggles, that vendor that makes you feel calm, that vendor that makes you feel you have found a friend and not just a vendor.

I want to get to know you on a deeper level, create a connection full of trust and good vibes.

Now you could hire a photographer that is doesn't like pizza or you could create an experience with me and focus less on just "taking photos".

Hover over below to see what these things mean to me and for you.


I know I have already said it that I want to be more than just a vendor to you and I keep stressing this point about being the right fit for each other and you are probably thinking we get I Jayde you want to be our friend, "why are you so obsessed with us?" and it is because I want you to be comfortable with me, there is nothing worse having your photos captured and you feel like everything is forced. I want this experience to be truly you and feel comfortable enough to fully be yourselves. Let go of those fears that you are awkward or you hate photos (I'm looking at you boys) because by the end of your session my couples always remark how fun that was, so I promise we will have a good time, because having your photos shouldn't be a chore, it should be a fun date with a third wheel (me!)


I can not tell you how many times I have been contacted by a couple in tears because their cheap photographer pulled out last minute or they never received their photos or they received their photos and they are so disappointed by the quality or lack of images. The value of photography doesn't just come down to cost it comes down to the value of those memories, because once the flowers have wilted and the cake has been eating, those photos of you two loving the day you became one are moments you can never get back so to have them captured in a way that truly reflects you by a photographer that will turn up, is something that will only increase in value as you relive those moments and fawn over your images as you show your friends and family for generations to come.


Look, you probably haven't been a bride or groom before, and even if you had you are probably still trying to figure stuff out, the 5 W's + 1 H, + all the stuff you haven't even started to think about yet. I have been to a wedding or two in my time, so I am here to help you no matter what you need, whether it is helping teach someone to tie a tie or just getting the most out of your day, I am here to help from the day you contact me. Let's sit down over coffee/cocktails and chat if you ever need some time to plan or vent!


Let's do you, let's break traditions to be truly you.

No matter what you decide for your BIG day people will always have an option so why not make it truly you two and absolutely love your day rather than trying to make others happy! 


Don't wanna wear shoes, f*** them, hate cake, ice cream it is, want to get married under a waterfall or over a weekend camping, DO IT! Wear the black dress, hike up the side of a mountain for a sunrise I DO!


Let your day be truly about you two, let it show your love, let it be you!  

At the end of the day, it is about you two saying I DO and I am 100% here to support your day being truly you! 

Allow your memories to be captured in a natural raw way that allows you to feel that moment with all the love that surrounds it every time you look back at these photos for generations to come.

Let's talk about us!

If you have been reading through, thinking ughh, all I want is someone to just turn up for a few hours take some photos then leave, or I want only posed photos and I hate pizza, then I think it is time we cut our losses, before we invest too much of both of our hearts and get them broken, there is a photographer out there for you and I know you will find them and feel happy and they will be able to give you what you want because that is what is most important, because I want you to feel amazing about whom you book for your big day, but.... if you have been reading and thinking, OMGosh, this is so fetch, then get in loser because we are gonna be having a BOMB as time!
