Nzipp ‘Iris’ awards

Over the wedding season and inbetween times I get to work with a variety of fantastic Photographers. These photographers also have competitions in New Zealand. The professional photographers (NZIPP) have the IRIS AWARDS. This is where they submit their best work to be judged. Ultimately to see who get the photographer of the year.

This year Rachel Jordan of Two Little Starfish entered and four of her images where ones that I’d also been apart of, either from editorial photo shoots or weddings.

Well done Rachel and great to be part of your success.

I’ve been a slacker with you all!!

Hi there again.

Well it’s been a bit since I’ve said anything or posted anything, sorry about that.

It’s my wedding off season, but really it’s all about enquiries, bookings and doing any creative work that I’ve been saving up over summer.

Anywho the other thing that I try and do is collect photos from my Brides big day.

Early Feb was Kelly’s day. I loved seeing the colours she chose for her bridesmaids, perfect for summer.

Enjoy, it was a fabulous day.





Justine is a lovely local  from the Bay of Islands/Kerikeri area.

I met her as a beauty therapist some time back, she owns ‘The Powder Room’ in the area.

She married her longtime man Brett last February, in a lovely ceremony at their Home.

With a definite vintage feel to their day, signing the Register in their cute little caravan.

Justine was after something soft and relaxed for her hair. It was the perfect length, aka just on her shoulders.

As you can see it looked great with her exquite gown.

Susan & Micheal

I was going through a few things and realised that I didn’t have many photos from Susan’s wedding last year.

 So I touch base with her and she gave me access to her beautiful images.

I’m so grateful as I love these images from the very talented Jenna Young Photography ( now based in Blenheim).

We got Susan ready at the Scenic hotel Paihia, an excellent location.
