Spring Celebration

Bringing together playful moments, gentle movement, and a soft palette, Poet Pictures create a unique and artful afternoon celebration.

Set in the rolling hills of Northland, a family-style table is adorned with shared plates and food dancing between contemporary and nostalgic cuisine. The addition of simple flowers with strong colours feels as though they have been plucked from a nearby field.

Behind this tasteful styled shoot is Poet Pictures, a team of analogue photographers who capture celebration through an intimate, artistic, and natural lens. They believe the beauty in life is the poetics in noticing — with a focus on capturing the moments in between just as much as the big moments.

The trio brought this relaxed yet picturesque spread to life on a fresh spring day.

Alongside their picture making, Poet Pictures offers creative consultancy for your big day and can assist with anything from styling and art direction to stationery, venue, food, and fashion.
