It was so special to photograph two of my close friends on their wedding day and to watch them say their vows surrounded by friends and family at the picturesque Mistletoe Bay Eco Village in the Marlborough Sounds. Sarah and Sarah are two of the warmest, most loving humans I know and I am so lucky to have them in my life.
I have to say it was a little bit tricky directing the two of them due to having the same name, so we decided to use nicknames during the portrait session. Shorty for Sarah in the off-white Julian Danger gown, and Goodie for Sarah in the forest green number. Goodie, short for Goodie Mouse, Sarah’s wonderful mother gave everyone in the family extraordinary nicknames, mine was Guilly Du (don’t ask me how or why?!?) Goodie is like a sister to me, I grew up with her family, and this made it even more special to be there with her as she tied the knot with Shorty.
I am so grateful to Goodie and Shorty for letting me drag them around the Marlborough Sounds to all the little nooks and crannies that caught my eye.
