Pounamu Photography with Nick Campeau and Carli Campeau.

If you are or have ever been a bride of mine you know that I am a BIG fan of first looks.
Look, I get it, you want the first time he sees you to be when you are walking down that aisle, I get that completely. But, more than half the time, when I turn around to get that shot of his face, he looks kind of... terrified. There are 200 people staring at him, my camera is trained on him, and he knows that he's supposed to do something with his face but he has no idea what.
I love f...irst looks because I do them with just the two of you (plus your child, as is the case here) and that's it. No one is looking on, no one is peeking in, and I can get your genuine reactions. You actually get to hug and kiss each other when you first see each other, tell each other how great you look, all without the added pressure of a bunch of people looking at you.
Not only that, but it takes the pressure off for the ceremony, AND gives you the opportunity to create a timeline that is more convenient for your guests (no three hour break between the ceremony and reception!)
If you're looking at doing a first look please let me know, I can help out with your timeline
Nick and Carli... there are plenty of photos from this moment that I could have shown off, but Cartyr really stole the show (and my heart) on this one

We were fortunate enough to have Jade not only capture our wedding day but also our engagement session. When choosing a photographer to capture our photos we wa...nted someone who was willing to work with us, make us feel comfortable doing so, and to have fun with it. Jade exceeded our criteria. Jade was able to accommodate every request we had and ensure that every special moment was captured. I cannot recommend Jade enough and I am eager to work with her in the future. See More

What an amazing photographer! Jade is extremely talented and did our engagement photos, my boudoir shoot and our wedding photos. She makes sure you are at ease during such a monumental time in your life and not to mention she goes the extra mile (gave me her rubber boots to do some shots on a very muddy trail while she sacrificed her cute flats)! She runs a very professional business and we would happily recommend Jade for your big day. See More

I have had the pleasure of not only bringing Jade along for our destination wedding but with also doing engagement photos and a boudoir shoot. This girl is the ...real deal. She is a master of her craft and I am eternally grateful that we were able to connect. She instantly became part of the family in Mexico and I look forward to years of friendship and extraordinary photographs!!!! See More

First off Jade is talented, and she's wonderful to work with. I recently had a photo-shoot with her and I could not have asked for more. She made everything ve...ry easy and relaxing. I never in a million years thought I would do a boudoir photo-shoot, but Jade made the experience so fun. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! Keep up the fantastic work girlie, we will be using you in the future for sure. :) See More

Extremely talented artist and storyteller. I loved my engagement photos. She knows how to capture joy, among other emotions. That is what makes her an artist, and not simply a photographer. Her photos truly tell beautiful stories

Pounamu Photography with Nick Campeau and Carli Campeau.

The first sneak peek from a wedding is very rarely black and white... but dang... these black and whites are just so magical to me I just couldn't help it.
Nick and Carli, I really don't even know what to say. Your wedding was the best possible way we could have hoped to start off an incredibly busy wedding season.
Your undying love for each other, your friends and families, and Cartyr, made this day and capturing those genuine moments so unbelievably easy.
I don't think I've... ever encountered a more relaxed bride in my entire career.
Wrong table clothes got delivered? : "Meh, whatever."
No chair covers? : "I don't want my guests sitting for very long anyway!"
Cartyr wants to go play in the bouncy castle : "Yep go for it, but take off your jacket!"
Are you worried about getting the bottom of your dress dirty? : "NOPE"
Amelia and I have an absolute blast with you and your families and friends, congratulations loves, enjoy

Alright, catch-up time.
I have been looking so forward to posting these but just haven't had the time since I came back from Utah!
I absolutely adore Utah. Every time I go I learn so much without really meaning to, and I have made some amazing friends while there.
I don't know when I'll be back, but I miss you all already

I can't even with these two.

Pounamu Photography added 7 new photos — with Erich Dittmann and Charissa Dittmann.

Charissa and Erich and Avery have once again flooded my computer with gorgeous family photographs, and I can not wait to meet their new little addition this summer.
I take photos for Charissa and Erich almost every year, and every year they make me feel more and more like part of the family. Clients like this are why I do what I do. They treasure these moments so dearly, they style their own sessions to ensure they are getting the best photos possible, and the more we work together, the better the photos get.
Love you guys, hope you love this set as much as I do!

Delivered this wedding gallery today, Amie you are such a BEAUTIFUL bride, seriously, so flawless. Congratulations again you guys!

Find a woman that looks at you like Jen looks at Dane. And find a man that looks at the camera like Dane does (okay Zoolander, stop and look at your fiance)

SPRING IS HERE FINALLY! Here is part 2 of Delainey's Grad photos, I adore this girl so much. If you're still looking for Grad photos please get in contact with me through here or via e-mail at

D, from the three year old I chased in circles around her parent's house to the unbelievably stunning woman you have become, I couldn't have been more honoured to take these photos for you.

Being accepted into not one, but two prestigious universities, all of... your extra-curriculars, and the unbelievable amount of talent and passion that you put into everything you do, I know your parents, your family, and my family couldn't be prouder of you.

GET IT GIRL! Congratulations! Love you lots

A few of my brides have been asking about this, so I'm SO EXCITED and happy to finally announce my Spring Boudoir Marathon!
It will be taking place on May 6th i...n Sherwood Park. As usual, there will be some mimosas (and maybe something a little stronger) to give you some liquid courage. I love doing marathons because my clients can bring a friend to do it with them and make an afternoon of it! I have once again secured the amazing Joline from Lily Grey Artistry for her makeup services and the talented Jessica from Running With Scissors to give you a sexy style you will love and will want to rock all night! Keep in mind that this is a Saturday so you will have a ready-made makeup and hair style to head out on a date or girl's night later on
If you would like to secure your spot, a $100 deposit is required via e-mail money transfer.
As always, I am absolutely stoked to hold another marathon this spring. It's the perfect time to get that Groom's gift brides! Or for all you single ladies, this is such an unbelievably rewarding and confidence boosting experience, boudoir photos can make you feel like a million bucks In addition, I will be opening this marathon up to couples. Please take a peek further down my page for examples of couple's boudoir photos, they are an amazing opportunity to reconnect and get something to hang on your bedroom wall.
Feel free to pop me a message with any questions or concerns you may have, looking forward to another amazing day!
