For the lovers,
Wedding & Elopement Photography by Nara Maw
Nara Maw is the creative woman behind the camera and The Lovers Photography, a wedding photography business based in Northland. She is inspired by real people and how love is beautifully unapologetic.
Nara photographs those loved-up couples in elopements, weddings, engagement photoshoots, and couples sessions.
Earthy muted tones all drawn from art nouveau pieces - carefully chosen and balanced to compliment each other.
These tones are seen in Nara's photographic work too - flowers, landscapes, beaches, wedding and bridal party outfits and within floral bouquets.
Nara's initial request was a black and white brand - however to stand out in a sea of B&W photographer portfolios and emotionally connect to her target audience, it was important we went beyond that!
The Redesigned Website
With a renewed brand vision, the website was in for a complete overhaul! Utilising brand elements to float in the background of the page, provided a subtle layer to contrast and help the photographs stand out.
Arches, curved corners and poster type styled headings are a nod to the Art Nouveau movement with a digital take. I wanted to create a timeless, elegant design that stood out amongst the sea of black and white photography portfolios that tend to lack colour. Using coloured type in unusual Art Nouveau typefaces helped connect the brand.
Nara wrote her own content, exploring a poetic way to capture the feeling of love and couples excited for their wedding day.
WIth clear calls to action, subtle custom illustration, creative font choices and elegant design helped this site win Rocketspark's Site of the Month in Jan/Feb 2023.
