Hello I’m Lucy
Thanks for popping by to find out more about myself & my little family
I met my husband Mathieu 15 years ago at Art School where we both studied Photography……. & have been together ever since
After a spot of travel & a stint living overseas we got hitched ourselves on the wild west coast of New Zealand.
We now have a sweet 4 year old toddler called Jakob & 2 year old twins Zenna & Dante …so life is a bit busy now with 3 under 5!
We also have a Burmese cat called Shiva aka Shiva the Diva who thinks she’s a dog & likes to go on walks around our neighbourhood
We have recently moved to Algies bay, about 1 hour north of Auckland & living the slow country life. We like to visit our horse & sheep neighbours…& I’m finally growing my own veggies! I’m looking forward to working more in/ exploring the Matakana/ northland region.
I shoot a mixture of families & loved up couples, very candid & relaxed.
Oh & I also love picnics, coffee, carrot cake, crystals, hiking adventures, sunsets, good chat….& kissing chubby baby legs
So that’s a little bit about me & my family, here’s a bit about my style & that big day…
I love Weddings because I love beautiful & genuine emotions, & I tear up at most of the weddings! I capture all the candid & spontaneous moments in a fresh Documentary approach- it’s not just about turning up on the day, taking photos & leaving. It’s about getting to know you (+ all your special quirks) & keeping things simple, relaxed, fun & effortless on the day.
I usually meet my couples at a local cafe a few times before the wedding. I love to find out how you both relate to each other, where you met, how you got engaged.
If your keen too, I’m a big advocate for engagement photo sessions- it’s the best way for us all to hang out together & get to know each others style & for you both to feel more comfortable in front of the camera.
I’m a morning person & I’m quite often up at the computer in our home by 7am checking emails (well, I’m awake these days at 6am due to a couple of little morning monsters)
I’m so happy to be doing this as a ‘job’. Especially for the days when it’s raining outside & I only have to walk a few metres to my computer to start work!
I treat every Wedding with care & warmth both in my nature & in my images…edited by me & not some off shore company!
Basically, it’s all about you & your love….I’m just their to capture your beautiful day for you to keep forever. That’s it really.
So come have a little adventure with me, I would love to hear from you.
I also fly around for sweet elopements- just check out my destination wedding page & flick me an email & we can discuss your sweet day.
So excited about my new venture photographing family stories. Obviously since having a baby of my own has moved me more in this direction which feels so natural.
My Family Story sessions are in home or on adventure. Natural. Documenting every day life & your little ones souls
Your family story can be made into a coffee table photo book, made to be seen, handled & looked at often.
