Carey’s Bay Hotel

January 19, 2012

Stu and I went for a lovely Sunday drive last year to the wonderful Carey’s Bay Hotel. All their delicious seafood is locally caught and even comes in right off the boats in front of the restaurant! Such a great place to go for a day out, – and their Seafood Platter is to die for! Thanks Jo & co for a lovely afternoon.

My beautiful friend Chloe

January 11, 2012

I just couldn’t resist putting up these spontaneous shots of Chloe that I took in a pool of gorgeous natural light last month. She just looks so beautiful! Being one of my best mates, Chloe has been dragged in front of my lens many times, always a faithful model! So I hope this gives her a nice surprise when she wakes up in London in a few hours time xx

Isabel’s Graduation & Family Portraits

January 11, 2012

Toward the end of last year I photographed one of my previous client’s graduations.

Being her second graduation, Isabel wasn’t that bothered about many shots – so we turned it into an opportunity to get some lovely family photos while they were all together.

Every time I photograph this family, it’s such a fun experience. Along with hilarious confusions between Isabel and I’s names (leaving me thinking that Isabel’s Dad was teasing me, when of course he was teasing her!), they bring out their huge smiles everytime, and I end up with so many good shots it ridiculous. Not even a blink out of any of them!

Some people are just pros!

Relish at the Mercure Hotel

January 10, 2012

Bit late on this one, what with the business of Christmas and all!

Hope you all had a lovely break away, and that  you got one at all!

I’m feeling slightly more refreshed after an amazing trip to Central Otago, so nice to be able to swim every day, and the weather was just perfect! Topped off by a few trips to some wineries and a fun trip up the Dart River with Dart River Safaris – which I can totally recommend! We live in such a gorgeous country.

I’m busy updating all my pricelists for 2012, and designing a new website – nice to finally have a bit of time to sort these things out before Polytech and Tourism Dunedin start up again for the year…..and the madness continues!

If you’d like to see my Portrait and Wedding Pricelists for 2012, head to the ‘About’ tab above and send me an email – I’ll get one to you quicksmart.

Other than that, Happy New Year and hope all your resolutions come true!

Sam & Lauren’s Gorgeous Vintage Wedding!

December 20, 2011

A few weeks ago, I traveled up to Christchurch for a Vintage themed wedding.

Sam & Lauren (and baby Max), – who are both really into photography – were keen on some casual doco shots of their day, and I’d been told there was to be no cheese under any circumstances! Which of course is preferable to me!

Lauren had spent the past year making, gathering and sewing all the little details of her wedding, and was keen for her photos to fit the theme.

I have to say, this was the most amazing wedding I’ve ever shot – every single little detail was perfect, from the amazing Venue (Valley of Peace) to the table settings, and the people. Shooting was a whole heap of fun with these guys, and I had a hilarious day!

Lauren is starting a wedding hire business – so keep a look out for her amazing creations – I’ll post a link once she’s got her website sorted.

Have a great Xmas and New Year everyone! Swim & drive safe!!

Madly British

December 15, 2011

First stop on our journey around Dunedin’s restaurants was Madly British.

I ate so much here I could hardly move….portion sizes are very generous and it was too yummy not to eat!

For Stu Todd’s story on Madly British – Head to Dunedin NZ, or check this week’s D-Scene!
