For those who love
to take their own path
your day your way
If you could get married anywhere, where would it be?
There is something so incredibly moving about two people on their own adventure together, whether in a wild frontier or a precious spot with special meaning, just stripping it bare, so there is nothing but their love.
It's less about the people in your lives and more about you and a true sense of place. What destination shall we adventure to, together?
"Me and you. Just us two."
Your Elopement Photographer
Do small things with great love...
I'm a big believer that anything is possible, so just because your numbers may be small, that certainly doesn't mean your day has to be! With beaches, mountains, rivers and vineyards, the Wairarapa is anything but small. Make the most of New Zealand's beautiful spaces. Great love on your day, your way!
I can create an entire elopement experience...
More than just a photographer, I can create your entire elopement or intimate wedding experience for you. From glamping to heli-weddings. With event experience, a wealth of local knowledge and an epic team, leave the logistics to me so you can focus on you! I'll be your photographer AND dream maker.
"Joys come from simple and natural things: mists over meadows, sunlight on leaves, the path of the moon over water."
Sigurd F. Olson
"We had the pleasure of having Sam capture our intimate elopement! From the first time we spoke over zoom we (my husband and I) felt instantly comfortable. Sam really made an effort to get to know us as a couple, our story, what made us, us and what we wanted to remember about our day. Our photos are perfect! I couldn’t rate her highly enough!"
