Yesterday’s rainy day Wellington Wedding

Wellington Wedding Photography


Here is one frame from Megan and Jarred’s wedding yesterday. It rained pretty solidly for most of the day. We had planned to take some photos out in Seatoun after the ceremony. When it was time to head out it was still raining. But Megan and Jarred were pretty confident so we jumped in the cars and with window wipers squealing we headed out to Seatoun.


Somehow by the time we had got there the rain had stopped.  And then just as we were leaving the fog rolled in.




Megan Baker - Thanks Tim and Nadine, you guys were amazing! We’re so excited to see the rest :)

Windswept coastline Wellington wedding

Back in 2012, Nadine and I packed our bags and got on a plane headed to the Netherlands. We were escaping Wellington’s winter to photograph Delle and Nick’s summer wedding in Amsterdam.


We were lucky enough to spend time before the wedding with Delle and Nick’s friends and family. That is where we met Delle’s brother Miles and his partner Ellie and instantly bonded over our mutual love of hamburgers. Miles and Ellie told us of a semi-mythical sometimes-open burger caravan in Wellington, which was said to sell the best burgers in the world – Ekim Burgers. We agreed to try one of these burgers with them when we were back in the country.


Back in New Zealand, over one of the best burgers in the world, Miles and Ellie asked us to photograph their wedding.


The plans for the wedding had to change a bit thanks to earthquakes and pink stickered wedding venues. In the end they moved the wedding to one of the best and most physically isolated Wellington wedding venues, Pencarrow lodge. The landscape out there is just a little bit epic. That evening a big swell from the south rolled in creating some stunning surf. You could hear the roar of the waves from up at the lodge all evening, until the dancing started.

Alleyways of Hong Kong

We went to Hong Kong for the first time back in 2012. Nadine and I both really love that city. While I was busy playing with old film cameras, taking photos of men, and photos of dog rescues, Nadine was shooting in Hong Kong’s endless alleys.


When we got back to New Zealand, we were straight back into photographing lots of beautiful weddings. Once we had finished the wedding season in New Zealand we headed back overseas again in 2013. With all this busyness we almost forgot about these images Nadine took in the alleyways of Hong Kong.


Ok now for the nerdy side of things. There are 10 photos in this collection. Of these photos, 9 were taken on the Canon 24mm f1.4 L lens and only one was taken on the Canon 35mm f1.4 L lens. All of these photos were taken on full frame canon cameras.


Can you guess which single photo was taken on the 35mm lens? The difference is subtle and tricky to spot, but there is a difference.  If you can tell, let me know in the comment section below.


If you need some help comparing the different looks of the 24mm and 35mm, check out this post which has some examples of the 24mm and 35mm in action.




Photos and processing by Nadine.


Rebecca - No. 2 is my pick for the 35mm. Am I right?

7777 - Spent my life in these alleyways doing various odd things but thank you for reminding me of how much they are integral part of why I love HK.

One frame from the forest

Otaki Wedding Photographer


One of the best things about our job is that we get to meet lots of really lovely people and spend time with them when they are really happy. Danielle and Luke are really lovely people and were so nice to us. Throughout the day they kept checking that we had enough to eat and drink. They kept insisting that we sit down, eat some food, get a drink, and take lots of cake back home to Wellington with us.


Here is one frame from Danielle and Luke’s wedding on Saturday.
