2 years ago I put out there that I wanted to shoot a wedding in Queenstown and my dream came true when my childhood friend Em married her best friend Bren

When we arrived at The Winehouse the day before the wedding it was a winter wonderland and to be able to share in these special moments with Em & Brendan before the big day felt so special. When the wedding day came the next day it was one wow moment to the next. Vows that made you laugh, tears, life long friends, family, Sam the wedding coordinator at The Winehouse who truly blew me away with her service – was a GEM!…then after the ceremony we head out the back to the paddock and here comes our ride…a helicopter! The buzz and excitement was unbelievable, as Em, Bren, Jayden and I hopped in…it was such a surreal moment…one I will forever cherish. We land on The Remarkables and seriously what a perfect name for them – they are the reason Queenstown belongs in my heart…and here I was full-filling a dream on one of the happiest days of my childhood friends life…does it get better??? It does…it was freezing up there…I asked the pilot how long we had to shoot and he said “you will be back long before your time is up, it’s freezing out there” ….. well Emma & Brendan were the perfect couple to take up on a freezing cold mountain….the smiles, falling through the snow, the epic views,  the laughs and fun just about sums it up.  They were incredible – their attitudes impressed me and the photos speak for themselves….well we maxed out our time and the pilot had to come and get us!

When we arrived back at The Winehouse all the guests were outside waving and cerebrating Em & Bren – …what a WOW moment! The vibe as we landing was such a buzz! After coming in from the cold were were served with the BEST pumpkin soup and cheese bread I have ever tasted…what a way to start the night. Fast forward to hilarious speeches….Kara, far out, THE BEST! Then came the dancing, I have never seen a dance floor so full – felt more like a club. I had the best time and I will be forever grateful to come on this adventure with you two xxx

“Tara was the most amazing photographer for our Winter Wedding in NZ. We honestly couldn’t be happier with the photos. We will cherish the memories she captured forever. She is professional, organised, warm and completely puts your mind at ease. We couldn’t recommend her more. Thank you so much Tara!”
