At just 12 days old. Here are some of the highlight photos from Kanhaiya's session. What a great little boy to photograph!
Some of the highlights from Raunak's photo session and with her brother Fatehveer and mum Shaminder.
This may be the biggest bridal party we ever photograph! Ten bridesmaids, Ten groomsmen, eight flower girls and eight page boys, plus the bride and groom! We snapped over 1,000 photos.
I visited Meli at her brother’s house in the morning. Hair and makeup was being done and all the girls were getting ready into their dresses. Then it was Meli’s turn to get into her dress. There was an emotional moment for all, when Meli’s daughters did the finishing touches to her stunning bridal look.
My second photographer, Phil, visited Simon and took photos of him and his groomsmen waiting for the big moment to arrive. Then it was off to the Church for the ceremony.
The bridesmaids and flower girls were perfectly in time when they walked down the aisle of the Church and then Sele and Mefi walked Meli down the aisle and Naomi & Ao gave Meli away.
Meli’s and Simon’s daughter sang throughout the service.
Amazing coordination with the bridesmaids and groomsmen all forming a guard of honour type line, during the recessional, when the bride and groom exited the Church.
The bridal party then went by limos to the Botanic Gardens. The rain managed to hold off all day, right until we got to the Botanic Gardens for the bridal party photos. The bridesmaids changed into other dresses in preparation for the reception. During this time, there was a shower, then an unusual ray of sunshine that just shone down for a few minutes.
The bridal party kept us entertained with all their entrances into the reception venue. Great dance moves down the red carpet!
The evening went very well, with lots of dancing, smiles and Samoan cultural performances throughout the night. All the guests really enjoyed themselves.
The cake was an impressive 12 tiers in total!!!
Thank you Simon & Meli for choosing us as your photographers on such a special day. All the best and enjoy your life in Christchurch together.

Winter Baby Shoot
A few snaps from our latest baby shoot in Auckland.
Asees is just 15 days old.
Here are some of the photos from my latest Family Photo Shoot held on Mothers Day.
I first met Fanta and Meleane in January, when Tabula Rasa held their wedding open day. They chose this beautiful venue to host their wedding ceremony and reception.
Tabula Rasa (Latin for ‘new beginning’) couldn’t be a more perfect location to tie the knot. Located in Ramarama, Auckland, the luxurious setting provides multiple areas to capture photos. Particularly beautiful with the autumn colours of May.
Fanta, who comes from Ethiopia and Meleane from New Zealand of Samon descent (or as Fanta describes, his New Zealand Queen), met through a Christian dating site. I soon learnt this love match almost didn’t happen, as Fanta was hit by a car while out cycling one day.
The bride was ready on time, however the bridal car decided not to start! However, it wasn’t too much of a delay.
The page boy and flower girls were a little shy to walk down the aisle. It was a beautiful religious ceremony officiated by the Pastor. They received their blessings and prayers from the family and friends.
The church band played almost the entire time and there was beautiful singing and numerous dance performances from friends and family throughout the night.
We heard speeches from Meleane’s father, the maid of honour, Tooa and Meleane’s brother, David, who took on the role of best man in place of Fanta’s best friend Willy.
The beautiful cake was made by Meleane’s sister in law Emma. Thanks to other Meleane’s brother, being the MC for the day, who did a great job getting everyone organised and the day ran smoothly.
For their guest book, guests were asked to sign their names next to their favourite verse in the Bible.
Lots of dancing followed the reception meal.
Your day was beautiful and very special. I wish you both nothing but the best marriage. Enjoy your life together!
Below is a slideshow of some of the highlights from the day.
Warm Regards, Natalie
