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

Malinda and Farid’s wedding day!

001_farid and malinda

Malinda and Farid got married at The Estate in Church Bay, one of my favourite venues on Waiheke.  They had an amazing day, surrounded by family and friends who had traveled far and wide to attend their special day.

Farid got ready with his family at a gorgeous bed and breakfast called Enclosure Bay which had epic views overlooking … you guessed it, Enclosure Bay!

Meanwhile, at Outstanding in Oneroa, another of Waiheke’s fabulous accommodation places, Malinda was happily being pampered by the ever lovely Jules from Hair on Waiheke and Amy Crawford from The Beauty Spot, who is newly (ish) arrived on the island, and a wonderful addition to Waiheke’s make up experts!

We decided to stay at The Estate for the wedding photo shoot and spent a bit of time ambling around the many great areas at this lovely venue.

The weather on the day was a bit of a mix with the sun coming in and out for most of the day, but we were fortunate to get some beautiful blue skies along with a lovely (albeit brief!) sunset later in the evening.

Malinda’s beautiful flowers were the handiwork of Virginia from Flower Gallery

Farid and Malinda booked us to stay on for the reception which was a lot of fun, with dancing and lots of laughter… especially as the happy pair were announced in by their MC!

Malinda’s dad’s speech was excellent – he made reference to a dowry being owed but Farid was two steps ahead of him with miniature versions of the required pig and goat already on hand!
