The wedding weather has been amazing this season, and  Finn and Fiona’s wedding day was no exception.

From the elegant chapel at Knox College to photos around our beautiful harbour, the wedding was classical from start to finish.

Congratulations Fiona and Finn,  you looked fantastic.

Corstorphine House was a lovely backdrop for Simon and Stephs wedding day.
The light rain managed to stop just in time for the ceremony on the lawn overlooking our beautiful city.

The air was warm and calm, the sky overcast, just perfect for photos.
What a wonderful day for a wedding.

Congratulations Simon & Steph

It’s come to the end of the year again and as we format our cards and put our gear away we realise the huge range of work that has been shot over the past few weeks.

There has been weddings, plenty of graduation ceremonies, formals, schools, and celebrations of all kinds. I’ve even managed to get a shoot of my kids together just in time for Christmas.

Our Women: 125 of Dunedin’s Extra-ordinary Women

In September I received a phone call from Hannah Molloy at the Otago Museum asking if I wanted to help photograph 125 women of Dunedin to mark the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand. It sounded like an amazing project so I said yes straight away.

Photographer and friend, Sinead Jenkins was already on board with the project and I knew we would make a great team.
The idea was to photograph these women in their own environments as much as we could.
Over the space of a few weeks we worked frantically at contacting these women and making times to photograph them on location.

I’m not sure how we managed it but we got all 125 women photographed!!
At the museum exhibition all of the images are accompanied with a short caption about what it means to be a woman in Dunedin.  There are some profound comments that are really powerful.

I met so many amazing and inspirational women photographing this project, it was an honor to be part of it all.

All of the images and captions are now on display at the Otago Museum and the exhibition has just been extended to the 2nd December.

Don’t miss it.

Linda and Andrew were married earlier this year in Dunedin.
I had the pleasure of photographing the bride and groom before the wedding ceremony which is a lovely way to calm the nerves. (mine not theirs!)
The first look was in the beautiful, intimate setting of The Duke of Wellington.

The  venue for the ceremony was a football field on which Linda and Andrew had played many a game of football, so it was only fitting they incorporated that into their special day.
Family friends were able to celebrate the night away in the newly renovated Sunnyvale club-rooms.
