Remember this gorgeous couple?

Well, they got married in February and it was fabulous!

The ceremony was at St Joseph’s Cathedral and the reception at the Wingatui Racecourse.
There were beautiful coloured  bridesmaids dresses,  personalized cuff links for the boys and a beautiful bride all in lace!
Sarah and Rory had worked so hard to make their wedding day special and it really was.

The advantage of having a second shooter is shown in the above images, each photographer sees something different.
I just love Belinda’s image on the left!

I just love this location, it’s the forestry on Three Mile Hill, beautiful even when the weather wasn’t playing the game!

Unfortunately the rain got so heavy we had to make the decision to run back to the cars.
We knew as soon as we got there that it would stop and sure enough after a couple of minutes it did!

The kindness of strangers! This lovely lady who had walked past us previously came back with an umbrella from her car thinking ‘oh those girls will be getting soaked?’ Thank you!!

Sarah is very much a ‘details’ kind of girl and there was an abundance of evidence at the reception.
She made everything! Even the cake. It was all just so beautiful!

Graduation photos are a time where even the most reluctant subject recognises it’s an event in your life that needs recorded.

At Kelk Photography we have been photographing the graduates of Otago University for over 30 years.  We have a studio that offers the traditional portrait style, plus a photographer who works outside in the university area photographing on location.  Even though there are lots of construction works happening on campus at the moment, there are still lots of places to work.

Bookings are filling fast for May, so please give us a call.

Lucy and Kamil graduated December last year.

We were totally spoilt for choice when it came to beautiful locations for this wedding.
We started at Knox College in the senior common room, which was lovingly restored a couple of years ago. It’s a seriously beautiful room and perfect for the guys to get ready and enjoy a couple whiskey’s before the ceremony.

The girls were not too far away in Arden House, a lovely little cottage out the back of Knox College.
The light was perfect and the girls were looking so gorgeous.

The ceremony was held at the Dunedin Botanic gardens and the sun came out just in time for a lovely service officiated by Graham, Oliver’s Dad.
We then roamed around the meadow at the Gardens and went on to visit the stables at Chingford Park and made our way back to the great hall at Knox College.

What a gorgeous wedding, we really enjoyed photographing your special day Georgette and Oliver!

A super cute family shoot for you to enjoy this week.  Our city’s botanic gardens continue to be the most amazing place to photograph, and enjoy a quiet moment.  These gorgeous girls enjoyed the timeless activity of blowing dandelions.  We did learn it’s important not to have the dandelion too close to your mouth as you inhale !!

Emily and Tony were married recently in the gorgeous seaside town of Karitane.

Emily’s family have lived in the area for generations and her uncle’s property was just above the church which meant guests had a chance to walk down the path to the wedding ceremony.    The reception marquee would have to have had the best ever view.

We shot the wedding party photo’s in and around the reception venue, so guests were able to enjoy the view, watch the photo shoot, and share time with family and friends.

 All in all a beautiful, relaxed day, with an awesome couple.

Kerry and Belinda

It is such a privilege to be able to record the emotions of a wedding ceremony.  The transition from nervous anticipation to pure joy is amazing
