Laura + Dan // Boomrock, New Zealand

The Haka gets me everytime.

It’s that crazy intense passion and the sense of togetherness and community. It just gets me every, single, time…

My eyes well up and my heart just about bursts.

Laura and Dan had so many amazing moments in their day but the Haka had to be right up there… So, damn, good.

New Zealand has to be one of my favorite places in the world too. Incredible landscapes and a bunch of really cool down to earth people. A perfect place to get married.

Yeah… I think I left a little piece of my heart at Boomrock looking out over the cliffs with the wind on my face. It was just a really special place to be right at that moment and I’m glad and grateful I got to capture it.

In the morning as Laura and Dan were getting ready, Dan cranked up the speakers and played this tune. It will always remind me of this special day now.

Press play and take a first peek at some of the highlights… It’s a long one peeps! Shout outs if you make it to the end!
