How did your love story begin?

Paresh and I got introduced to each other two years ago. I was so busy at the time, so we squeezed in dates where we could. I remember being excited for our first date, he picked me up, opened the car door for me, and our story began. The more we spent time together, the more I fell in love with him. I had never met anyone that made me feel like this before.

Why did you say ‘YES’? 

Who says chivalry is dead?! Paresh was the most sweet, caring, humorous guy I had ever met. There was no question about it, he was most definitely the ONE! I remember not long after we had started going out, that he went overseas, and oh my god I missed him so badly!

behind the lens


I’m a Wedding photographer from an adorable little place called Pukekohe in an amazing country known as New Zealand. I’m pretty certain I have the best job in the world because I literally leap out of bed every morning to do what I love – and that’s capture your Wedding. I’m 26 and I have my dream job, it all seems a little ridiculous and maybe it is!

I’m a kiwi-born Indian, lover of nature, baking, dogs, travel, photography and my wonderful partner Todd. At the moment I’m also lucky enough to be photographing summer in the southern and northern hemisphere with splitting my year between New Zealand and the UK for all kinds of gorgeous Weddings.

My working style is super friendly, just like me – I’m relaxed and know that my number one job is to capture your relationship in the most unique and authentic manner possible. Nervous about posing? Don’t want to pose? Not an issue at all – I know how to get you two laughing, giggling and doing all kinds of cute things for my camera.

I love to work with couples who know that their Wedding photography is an investment, and want to get creative with me to create some incredible memories. If you think we’re going to get along like a house on fire and are interested in working with someone who is more excited about your Wedding photo’s than possible, then you should definitely get in touchCheck out Nisha’s lastest work HERE.
