It’s so easy to go on amazing adventures, only to regret later that you didn’t pick up the camera more. At the time you don’t want to spoil the moment, but as years pass and faces age you’re so grateful that you did. 🙂

I’m stoked then that Clare and Josh got in touch while they were planning their epic honeymoon across the United States. Back in early May we marked their last day in New York by going on a photographic adventure through the city, taking in the incredible light, sounds and tastes of this amazing place. xx

Meet Clare and Josh. <3

Shooting in Christchurch, you get very used to taking portraits without much shade. New York, with its interesting patches of light at every corner… ohhhh I was in photographic heaven!

Clare and Josh are one of those gorgeous couples who take life and their responsibilities seriously, but also know how to enjoy the little things. These two beamed all through our day together… it was gorgeous. xx
