Troy & Camyce came back to Central Otago to get married in February. They chose to do a “First Look” at the Shaky Bridge in Alexandra – as this was where Troy had proposed and so was a special place for them both. We then headed out for some photo’s where the weather wasn’t really being very kind. The winds were so strong it wasn’t ideal . Luckily by the time we arrived at The Packing shed for the ceremony the winds had calmed and everything went of smoothly. Thanks for having me to share in your day. Here is a little peek into Troy and Camyce’s wedding day…….
Paige and Sam – Wow what a wedding day. These guys were so much fun. We had so many laughs throughout the day – starting when the Best man couldn’t find his suit. Well Im not sure that we started laughing at this – but we sure did have some laughs about it later and some funny photo’s with the trouser that he managed to borrow that weren’t quite the right fit! Here’s a preview of Paige and Sam’s beautiful day in Alexandra/Clyde.T

Mandy & Ted’s Wedding Day
Mandy and Ted decided to get married in Moeraki as they spend a lot of time in Hamden at their holiday home and just love the place. This was 3rd time lucky for Mandy and Ted who had tried on several occasions to tie the knott but with one thing or the other getting in the way it hadn’t eventuated. We arrived at Moeraki on the Thursday for the rehearsal to an almighty gale and freezing temperatures. I was pleasantly surprised to wake the next morning to the sun shining and the birds chirping. It was an early start as Ted and Mandy had decided to get their wedding party photos done before the ceremony. We had a fun morning – spending time at the beach, and then onto Oamaru before getting back for the ceremony just along from the Moeraki Boulders Cafe. We managed to get most of the way through the ceremony before getting a little sprinkling from above. The reception was held at the Moeraki Boulders Cafe – which has the most beautiful outlook. Thanks for sharing your special day with me Mandy and Ted, it was an absolute pleasure and I wish you a lifetime of happiness xx
Many thanks to all involved on the day:

Simon & Rose married on the farm at Kidd Gully on a overcast day in March. Rose and her bridesmaids/bestman were so relaxed on the morning of the wedding, while Simon and his crew were busy running around, picking up chairs that were being blown over and moving the ceremony location slightly into an area out of the wind. Down in Cromwell we were a little oblivious to the wind as it was not blowing at all where we were. By the time we arrived at the ceremony the wind had calmed and the boys had everything sorted. It was a fantastic spot overlooking beautiful scenery.
The photo’s were all done around the farm. Time disappeared quickly, and then we headed back to the amazing reception area that they had created under the stars.
The reception area looked amazing. They had spent so much time creating this amazing setting for friends and family, and they were so lucky with the weather. Rose had made not one but three beautiful wedding cakes (they all looked amazing). They arrived to the reception by jet boats to the guest’s surprise.
Thank you so much Rose & Simon for sharing your day with me. I so enjoyed my time you all, and wish you all much happiness in your future together xx

What a Wedding!
The wedding of Larrisa &Te Kohe took place on Larissa’s parents property in Alexandra. It was such a stunning setting and the day was filled with so much love and emotion. I found myself so wrapped up in listening to the speeches and wedding vows, I had to remind myself that I was there to do a job and get taking Photos!! The vows were so heartfelt and emotional, even Larissa’s Mum spoke so emotionally and the words – just so beautiful and full of meaning. T.K’s son Phoenix was also a special part of the day, and his kind caring nature was so evident as he stroked Larissa and T.k’s back when they got emotional during the wedding vows.The bridal party was a pretty stunning lineup – the girls all looked amazing – their dresses all different and so beautiful and the boys kept me on the go and very entertained. We had so much fun. Thank you Larissa and T.K for trusting me with the job of photographing your wedding day. It was such a pleasure to meet you both and I wish you all the best with your future life together xx Hope you enjoy this little preview of your day – and I will get them all on their way to you soon!
Brad and Jeanette married at The Homestead and Woolshed on Racecourse in April this year. The day started of with a covering of fog but came out beautiful! It was an early start to the day as we did the photography with the wedding party before the wedding. We were pretty spoilt for choice with locations out in Omakau. Time seemed to slip away pretty quickly as we were having fun and getting some great photos – but got them back in time for the beautiful ceremony at the Homestead. Jeanette had done the most amazing job with all the decorations at the reception. I walked in and was blown away with how beautiful it was. So much time had been spent on beautiful details. Here is a look at their day xx
Hannah and Allon were married in the beautiful Dansey’s Pass. Allon was such a character and keep us laughing most of the day with his “interesting posing” for photos. Hannah had done an amazing job organising the wedding, creating amazing table displays, the men’s button holes etc – she is one very talented lady. Here is a little glimpse into their day
The annual Epson/NZIPP Iris Professional Photography Awards is New Zealand’s only professional photography competition. The aim of these print awards is to recognise and honour the best in contemporary photography from New Zealand and overseas professionals. Organised by the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography the awards showcase cutting-edge imagery and top, creative photographic talent. The Iris Professional Photography Awards are open to all New Zealand and international professional photographers. A ‘professional photographer’ is defined as a “person who earns an income in the professional photography industry”. I always find these awards quite nerve wracking as we are putting ourselves out there to be judged, and that is a hard thing to do. You can create a beautiful image that you love and in 2 minutes it can be ripped apart and you can be left feeling not good enough. On the up side it can also leave you feeling great if you do well. It is great to see where you sit in the industry, and it is great to push yourself just that little bit harder. This year I entered 3 images – 2 in the classic wedding category and 1 in the classic portrait. I was pretty happy to come away with 1 professional standard, 1 bronze and 1 silver award.
Riki & Rebecca’s wedding Day
A huge congratulations to this awesome couple – Riki and Rebecca – who came back from Melbourne to get married in Central Otago. It was a fun filled day – with a great wedding party that kept me entertained. The wedding was held at the beautiful Orchard Gardens in the maze. From there the guest’s followed them back through into the circular garden for the cutting of the cake and family photos and then we headed off to get some wedding party photos done amongst the amazing landscape that we have right at our back door. Thanks Rikki and Rebecca for trusting me to capture your special day. I had a blast – and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness xx
