Aaron and Katelin filled their wedding day with fun, love and happiness - all of my favourite things to photograph!

Every single portrait in this blog is filled with emotion. Mainly laughter and smiles, but the odd happy tear too!

This is the beautiful @kirst_nz whoโ€™s wedding took place in Christchurch.

Although I am based in Southland, I am open to travelling NZ wide and will even travel if you have a destination wedding and want your MUA to tag along. ๐Ÿš—โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ—บ @ Chateau on the Park - Christchurch, a DoubleTree by Hilton


Now that Iโ€™m a year in being self employed I have my regulars which i loooove! @brydie.harrington is one of them. It doesnโ€™t quite feel like work when I have this girl in my chair, just a catch up and a play with makeup ๐Ÿ’•

I often get asked what brand I use, I am not loyal to just one brand. I like to trial all brands, both drug store and high end. I can confidently say some drugstore items take the crown so you should never think that because it costs more, ultimately itโ€™s going to preform better. Donโ€™t get me wrong, Iโ€™m a sucker for Mac, Nars, Lancรดme etc, although I am a massive Maybelline & Milani fan (both drugstore brands) and opt for $10.50 concealers because I genuinely love them, itโ€™s just a massive bonus that they are only $10.50! #TheProofIsInThePudding

Reminder to all the 2020 brides that still havenโ€™t booked in an MUA to get in quickly as I hate to disappoint if I am already booked. If youโ€™re getting married in 2021 you can now book with me so please do not hesitate to flick me a message or to message me again if you have already tried booking.

With the devastating acts that took place on Friday this is a reminder that it is still okay to proceed with everyday life. To not be scared by one mans disgusting hate crime and for this to be a lesson to all our tamariki that WE ARE THE CHANGE. Educate our children to give love to our brothers and sisters because THEY ARE US. I hope everyone has a safe and happy week and please remember to be kind to one another. ๐Ÿ’•.

I bet you wish you could be fussed over this much every day @emma_norman__ ๐Ÿ˜
