Cascia - One of our favorite wineries in Waiheke, NZ



We are Brie and Julian Zeman, the heart behind Turama Photography. We have been documenting weddings together for seven years. Growing up by the beach in San Diego, California, Julian's love for photography began with the ocean. He admits he is a coffee snob. He's also a real foodie who cooks the best Mexican food. And I'm Brie, a Kiwi/Cook Islander who grew up living the island life on Rarotonga. On my 21st birthday I left for the fast-paced city life in Australia but a year later I was back on the island photographing my first wedding for a friend. That's when I crossed paths with a dude sitting in the pool drinking tequila and OJ at the Kiikii Motel. Something clicked because we eloped three months later. We were only 22. Eight years later we live with our two cats, Unkie and Pretty. We love each other, we love what we do and for that we live each day with grateful hearts. A few years ago we took Julian's coffee obsession to the next level and built a little cafe in downtown Avarua. So if you find yourself on Rarotonga, pop into Salt Cafe and have a coffee or scoop of gelato.
