People often ask me where my favourite place in the world to shoot is. And I honestly don’t have a good answer to that. I’ve been lucky enough to see some truly magical wedding locations around the world, but I’ve also been fortunate enough to see love transform the most boring suburban community hall into a fairytale filled with laughter and joy. It’s never ever about the locations, always about the people.

With that said, I recently traveled to Queenstown to shoot Josephine and Steven’s wedding at Matakauri Lodge.

On film.

And ermahgerd.

Queenstown, NZ? Totally agree with you that it's *always* all about the people. But that being said, New Zealand is hands-down the most beautiful place on earth. Hard to capture an un-inspired photo there!!
