Junction Magazine Bridal Edition

~ Junction Magazine Bridal Edition ~

Putting together this “styled” wedding photo shoot in a time frame of 3 weeks was challenging, but rewarding when you see the results!

This planned photo shoot still required a lot of attention to detail just as you would be planning a real wedding to ensure it created the same authenticity.  It brought back a lot of personal memories of the time consuming job of wedding organisers, to ensure everything is perfect on the “big day.”

Lauren Holehouse, Brijana Cato and myself took charge and organised this awesome shoot for the Bridal Edition for Junction Magazine, our local Matakana based local magazine, that is distributed from Puhoi to Pakiri and also available in some places in Auckland.  With the Matakana Wedding Expo fast approaching it was a great opportunity for us to showcase some of the great wedding vendors and services we can offer in this area.  The magazine will be available at the expo.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the shoot.
