Casey and Otis became ONE on the 14th of November 2020!
SO... my journey with these two began with the birth of their baby girl Hiva back in March! I was asked by Casey to document the beautiful early stages of Hiva as an earth-side baby and what a treat that was. I believe that was one of the first photo sessions I had done using my new Fujifilm x100v camera which quickly became the main camera I use to this day!
Fast forward 8 months and there I was documenting yet another amazing milestone for the couples lives together. Their marriage!
I am a very grateful person, knowing I have the duty of playing such a big role in peoples lives and to be ASKED to do so is such an honour that I will never take for granted. I take my job very seriously and only wish to please every encounter I make with my photography. I am aware some days won't go to plan but its important to always find the beauty in any given situation and this is something I aim to achieve with my work. BUT, in Casey and Otis's case, everything went to plan, it was all smooth sailing and was a beautiful time to be apart of and capture!
Anyway, let me get back on track... the sun really came out to play for their union. A ceremony held on Casey's families property added to the very sentimental day! I think that is such a special idea to take advantage of if you can; to celebrate your marriage on family property, it will hold a lot of sentimental value to the pictures we capture and for you to look back on! So this in itself was a very special part of their day! The bridal party were then whisked away in Casey's dad's amazing, vintage blue Toyota truck and taken to a gorgeous and picturesque river out the back of the property. This is where I captured a lot of the photo's you can see below!
The rest of the evening was spent with hilarious speeches, amazing tongan rituals, some tears and of course a lot of love!
Thank you so much to Casey and Otis for asking me to photograph your beautiful day, I had a lot of fun being with you and your loved ones and I am so very thankful to be able to say I was able to be there to watch two best friends become one!
