Sophie and Tim… married on beautiful Waiheke Island!

And continuing the theme of starting the year off with a bang… a week or so ago we captured the incredibly gorgeous wedding of Sophie and Tim who were married at St Peters Church and then had their reception at the inimitable Mudbrick Vineyard.  Their wedding day epitomized style and elegance, with loads of fun thrown in along the way!

The boys got ready for the day at a holiday home in Tiri Rd where they were having a relaxed start to day…

Spelling out Tim’s initials… just in case you were wondering!

(A slightly mis-representative photo given how laid back and happy everyone actually was, but you’ve got to have at least one ‘rockstar’ shot, right?)

Meanwhile, at the very fabulous Fairgrounds Estate …

Sophie’s stunning dress was a David Fielden creation and her bridesmaids dresses were from online store ASOS

Sophie and her girls were in the skilled hands of Ashlee Kellett and her wonderful team of hair and make-up experts.

Effortless beauty from Sophie!  Floral arrangements during the day were by Kelly from Blush, who did a beautiful job of the bouquets and also the vases of wild blooms around Mudbrick Vineyard.

Sophie had managed to keep her dress a secret from all her bridesmaids and had a special ‘reveal’ moment with them…

MC’ed by Tim’s sister, their reception was such a pleasure to capture…  Laughter could be heard from every corner of the venue, especially during the speeches which were all fabulous.  So much love and happiness at this wedding!  Not to mention some seriously wicked dance moves being pulled out on the dance floor, especially from our bride… now there’s a girl you want in your corner in a dance-off!

I think I’m going to let my photos do the talking from this point on…

Starting the year with a bang!

One of my images which scored a Gold at last year’s New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP) Iris Awards and helped place me as a finalist in the Illustrative Category has been selected as part of the submission to represent New Zealand in the 2015 World Photographic Cup!

Gold Award_NZIPP Epson Iris Awards 2014

Yippie! My image will stand alongside the work of some amazing New Zealand photographers including last year’s NZIPP Photographer of the Year Richard Wood, media darling Holly Spring, fellow Waiheke photographer Blair Quax and awesome wedding shooters Jake Thomas and Jason Naylor (and that’s just to name a few!).

This year there are 27 countries vying for the title so it’s pretty exciting! Cross your fingers for our NZ submission x

Thanks 2014… you’ve been a blast!

What a year that was!  Big changes for us with the new studio in Oneroa and settling into a new pattern of family and work balance … lots of laughs…  a few tears…  both my beautiful children hit double digits (eeeeek!) … a new family member (puppy).  Here are just a few of the many images that have made me happy over the past 12 months.  #feelingblessed
