Hi, I'm Moira!

Ok, this is embarrassing. I asked my husband to describe me in three words. He answered with ‘Ahhh, damnn!’, shortly followed by ‘bubbly and determined.’ Then he started eyeing me cautiously, faltering when he muttered ‘obsessive’ and ‘sweetie-pie’. 

I’ll admit it! I totally obsess. Over good things though - like aesthetics, experiences, and lately, indoor plants. I’m a passionate person and tend to pour my heart and soul into what I love. 

I’m based in Auckland, New Zealand, and I’m a full time photographer. I found a great love in the mix of beauty and authenticity in wedding photography. Since I picked up my camera in 2011, I’ve shot over 300 weddings in 5 countries and counting.

A few things I love: Gardening, traveling, decorating, dreaming, long summer evenings, cuddling my dog, and drinking strong tea. Mountains and oceans always transport me to a good place. 

Besides photography, my other great love is a lovely, geeky, gorgeous long haired man called Constant. Together we eat far too much sushi and thrive on spontaneous adventures. We’ve been together for 15 years, but got married in Thailand in 2015. Our closest friends & family flew over to celebrate with us, and we had the time of our lives.

Now I would love to hear from you - spare me no details!
