2018 End of year review

2018 End of year review

You got to have a laugh! Are laughter and love not the two most important things in life?? It makes everything perfect, brings it all together.

I love doing these end of year reviews. There is something amazing about going through all the weddings from the year and reliving them all over again. Sometimes I miss moments I have captured, as the editing and “Technical stuff” takes over. Looking over all the images again, brings back the fun we all had.

I can not thank my amazing clients/friends enough for choosing me to capture their special day and allowing me to do what I love. 2018 has been incredible! I have met some really amazing people and being able to spend the time I do with each couple makes the big day so much more exciting. Being able to capture these split second moments in time for you all to enjoy for the rest of your life makes all the working hours, driving and living off coffee so worth it.

To every couple that booked me this year, I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH!


2019 marks the 10th anniversary since I photographed my first wedding and I hear photographers who hit this mark tend to go down one of two routes.

  1. Staying on the same path, doing the same things over and over where it just becomes a job and lose their creativity and passion.

  2. Change that direction, push the creativity limits, learn more and keep rising to the top!!

I am going down route number 2! I am pushing my creativity and challenging myself. I want to be the best photographer I can be and I still want to love what I do for the next 10 years!

I am excited for what the year ahead holds for me. It’s going to be epic and I cannot wait to share it all with you!

Meldrum House: Preview Album

Meldrum House: Preview Album

I am very excited to have my newest preview album on display in Meldrum House Hotel & featuring the photographs from three weddings.  This beautiful Queensberry Duo album is one of the new products I will be offering in 2016.  Printed to the highest quality in New Zealand and built to last many lifetimes.  These are not just wedding albums but they are so much more. They are heirlooms, memories that can be past on for generations. Digital images on a usb are great to have as a back up but with albums, you feel and connect with the photographs which bring back the memories of that special day!  I will be making some changes to my packages in 2016 and making them a little better! Keep an eye out.
