NZIPP Iris Awards 2018

NZIPP Iris Awards 2018 Its that time of year again and it still makes me nervous! Luckily I came away with 7 awards, which I was thrilled with, so here is the low down..... First up, my silver award from the NZIPP Iris Awards. This image was entered into the Portrait In Camera Artistry Category. This category celebrates in-camera capture so no photoshopp trickery allowed! I had about 9 or so images from this shoot which I was going to entered last year, but I couldn't quite decide how to lay them out. In the end I opted to use just these three shots of my boys playing around on a wooden boat at the park. I decided that take the documentary style images and use the repetition of the circles and the lines of the boat to create a stronger graphic. I was thrilled to receive a bronze award for this image in the Portrait In Camera Artistry category at the recent NZIPP Iris Awards.

The Landing Masterton Wedding Photographer – Jade & Craig

The Landing Masterton Wedding Photographer - Jade & Craig The Landing in Masterton is one of my favorite venues in the Wairarapa and its always a pleasure to work there. It was no exception for Jade & Craig's big day. This day was perfect from start to finish and with two young children in tow, these two were super relaxed about everything on the day and leading up to it. Being farmers, we made the most of the rural setting behind the property. Their two young boys loved the tractor and the doves but by the end of the day, all the excitement of the wedding day had got the better of them! Jade & Craig, thanks so much for having me along! x
