I met E + L in the morning at Peppers Bluewater Resort in Lake Tekapo. I helped document a few special moments for Emily, such as a few details (cologne, perfume, jewellery, rings, shoes, dress), her mom helping her into her dress, putting on her earrings + necklace, her bridesmaids. I spent about an hour or so hanging out with everyone, getting to know them, making sure I was comfortable with everyone and everyone was comfortable with me. This is so important to me because I feel like when we’re all on comfy terms, we can really be ourselves which allows us all to let loose on the day so I can capture each + every moment exactly how it’s happening!

Angela and Strawn from Oklahoma City eloped in Lake Tekapo, New Zealand with two friends/witnesses. Embracing the garden of their Airbnb for the ceremony, they celebrated under perfect weather alongside celebrant, Jade Whaley. From growing up in Chicago to now being a Lake Tekapo-based elopement + wedding photographer, I adore capturing such mountainous elopements + weddings, inspired by the scenery.

Grace + Braedyn celebrated their wedding in their hometown, Fairlie, South Canterbury. It was such a sunny and HOT day. When I say there wasn’t one person smiling the whole day – I mean it! My favourite part about weddings is seeing how happy everyone is to be together. There aren’t many events in life where all of your favourite people are together in one space, especially for G + B! A lot of their guests travelled from different regions of New Zealand as well as Australia!

H + G had their wedding in the backyard of a family home, way up on a hill in Fairlie, New Zealand. Their simple yet elegant backyard wedding was so dreamy. I loved how they used florals as money pieces around the property.

In the shadow of Mount Cook’s majestic peaks, love finds its purest echo, a blissful sanctuary where hearts unite with the splendor of nature as their only witness. Here, amidst whispering winds and soaring heights, every vow is amplified by the mountain’s timeless grace, crafting a moment of unparalleled intimacy and adventure. The mountains stand as guardians of your love, offering a backdrop so breathtaking, it seems painted by the very essence of romance itself. Eloping here is to weave your story into the tapestry of the wild, where every step, every glance, is a testament to a love as grand and enduring as the peaks themselves.

Caitlin really wanted to keep the ceremony space minimal and use the beautiful landscape of the property as her backdrop. I must say, […]
