Tarureka Estate Wedding Photographer – Josh & Allanah’s Winter Wedding

Tarureka Estate Wedding Photographer - Josh & Allanah's Winter Wedding I really love winter weddings and I always wonder why more couple don't go down this road.  So long as you choose your venue carefully, I really think its one of the best times of the year to get married. Firstly, you tend to get your pick of vendors over the quieter months. Less competition for available dates, less stress. You can also get great deals in the off season. But, as a photographer the reason I love winter weddings is for the light! Soft winter light is the best and you also get to take sunset and night time shots without missing your party - bonus! And if rains - so much fun can be had photographing in the rain, and if its really bad then you will have chosen an awesome venue so it doesn't matter! And if you want to you can always opt to go a 'First Look' as these guys did to really make the most of the time with your guests. Allanah and Josh opted for this stress free option and oh my, was this wedding fun! I thoroughly enjoyed shooting the day, and I have to say my cheeks were hurting from laughing so much by the end of the day. I am sure the photographs will tell the story without me rabbiting on! So here they are.....

Tararua Photographer – Sunset at East Holdworth

Tararua Photographer - Sunset at East Holdworth   Anyone that knows me, knows that I love to run. And I love to go on running adventures in the hills. In the Wairarapa we are blessed with an amazing playground right on our doorstep. The Tararuas. I have only explored a fraction of the ranges and each and every time I run there it blows me away. Every time is different. The light changes, the clouds are moving. Sometimes its a beautiful sunny day with blue skies and you can see for miles, others the clouds are in and it has an air of mystery. By, far my favourite time to go is when its change of light. Sunset and sunrise up there is just out of this world. It takes your breath away and you cant help but have a huge smile. It makers you feel alive. I love it. So usually I take just a running pack with all my gear and take a few shots with my phone. (its takes pretty good snaps and even has a Leica lens....whoa!) But a friend suggested I take my big camera,so I figured if I was going to take it, it would have be at a time where my phone camera couldn't do it justice. I am not sure any camera could, but I had a go anyway. After lugging 8kg of gear up the ridge (believe me, the extra 4kg makes a HUGE difference, just ask my calves and quads!) I was going to make the most of it. I hope you enjoy these images, I know I enjoyed shooting them. :) Sharisse x

Lacewood Wedding Photographer – Jess & Daniel

Lacewood Wedding Photographer - Jess & Daniel I love an autumn wedding! The light is lovely and soft, the colours of the trees are stunning and its a great excuse to choose a cosey venue for a fun party with your guests. Jess & Daniel were married in the garden at Lacewood, at Tuhitarata Estate back in May followed up by a reception in the cosey in site barn. It was four seasons in one day! From sunshine to hail, we had it all. I absolutely loved working with Jess & Daniel - so much fun and so relaxed and such beautiful families. Thanks so much for having me along to document your special day. Sharisse xx

Martinborough Wine Walks – A tough day at the office

Martinborough Wine Walks - A tough day at the office Sometimes we get some really tough jobs, and this was probably one of the toughest. A day of walking around the vineyards in Martinborough, listening to Nicola tell us all about the region, its wine, the growing and making process, and then top it all off having the taste the wine. It really doesn't get much tougher than this. But someone had to do it, so we agreed to come along.  :) This walking wine tour is an absolute must! Go do it. :)

NZIPP Iris Awards 2017 – Personal Project

NZIPP Iris Awards 2017 -  Personal Project So, I was pretty excited to receive another Silver award at the NZIPP Iris Awards 2017. This time it was in the Illustrative category and for an image that is a piece of personal work. Work that is not created for clients or to fulfill a brief, but just for my own self expression. This made it all the more special to receive an award for this print. I shot this image just a few weeks after I attended conference last year. I had watched a photographer talk about her work and it was absolutely beautiful, so inspiring. She used a lot of art models in her work, and she talked about how she loved to put the women on a pedestal, and it was about celebrating their beauty. And the work really was stunning. But all I could think is,  as a woman I don't feel this way. So I wanted to create something that spoke about the relationship lots of us have with our bodies, and how the mainstream media feeds into this. So it got me thinking about how certain body types are aspired too, put on pedestal, and worshipped. And how we demonise other body types that don't fit the mold. I wanted to express this in an image along with how we do this to ourselves. A lot of us have an 'ideal' version of our body which  we so often feel is unattainable. We also tend to feel that our current self isn't worthy. We often disconnect from our bodies, not seeing its true beauty but rather we see two verisons, a slightly warped mirror image, neither of which reflect the reality. So this is what this [...]

NZIPP Iris Awards 2017

NZIPP Iris Awards 2017   After entering the NZIPP Iris Awards last  year, for the first time again in years I was a little nervous entering again! I had set myself a target, so it was a little scarier then last year when I was just happy to get any award! The New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography  has a honors system, where you work your way up over the years depending on how many points you have  in total and how many you earned within a 4 year period through the awards. Because I have been a bit sporadic with my entries over the years, I had never achieved the required points within the timeframe to work my way up. So, after last year gaining 6 bronzes, I knew I need at least four more bronzes to get me the Associate level. And if I dared to dream big, I may even get something more than a bronze to get up to another level....... Well the first day rolled around and I had entered two images into two categories that I had never entered before - Documentary and Illustrative. I was particularly nervous about these prints as were both personal work (self-commissioned, non client work) and different from what I usually do. First up was my Doco image. This shot meant a lot to me as it was an image of my children and some of their friends after a game of rugby. I love this image because it tells you so much about this social group, how they interact, the personalities and also the story that is being told can be seen reflected everywhere through life. So my first print came up, butterflies in [...]
