I have been a photographer for 11 years now & counting! I specialise in Intimate Weddings & Families
I met my husband Mathieu 16 years ago at Art School (Elam) where I studied Art & Photography & have been together ever since
We now have a 5 year old, Jakob, & 4 year old twins Zenna & Dante …so life is a bit full on!
We also have a Burmese cat called Shiva, who thinks she’s a dog & likes to go on walks around our neighbourhood
We have recently moved to Algies bay, 1 hour north of Auckland (near Matakana/Warkworth), living the slow country life. We like to visit our horse & sheep neighbours…& I’m finally growing my own veggies & dahlias! Bliss!
I also paint (over at @lucyrice.art ) which is a happy passion place of mine that is growing & making my soul so very happy!
I’m an Aries sun & rising
I love coffee, carrot cake, yoga, crystals, astrology, hiking adventures, sunsets, good chats & good hugs!
So that’s a little bit about me & my family, here’s a bit about my style & your special moments…
I photograph mostly Intimate Weddings & NZ elopements. 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 (nowadays on video chats, but I still prefer in person!) 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 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 in NZ & over seas- just check out my destination wedding page & flick me an email & we can discuss your sweet day
Obviously since having kids, I’ve moved more in this direction which feels so natural to me
My Family Story sessions are in home or nature sessions, including a new & popular ‘Motherhood’ session
Super candid, raw & relaxed. 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 by little hands, or printed on lovely fine art archival paper
