A Year In Review | 2013

What an amazing year 2013 has been!

We feel so blessed to be able to do what we love, and share it together!  We have had the opportunity to photograph fabulous people and capture some of the most special moments in people's lives!

What a privilege!

We have also shared some pretty fun times together as a family.  We have put a few photos together, enjoy...

Our trip over to Europe spending time with friends and family was such a highlight {even despite the international travel with a baby!}..

On the streets on Amsterdam, Zach learnt the art of taking a "selfie"..

And after many Skype calls, Zach was able to meet his Great Oma and Opa in person.  Oma we love you and miss you...

Getting up to mischief and having so much fun together as a family..

And not least of all celebrating Zach's first birthday with an African themed party!  I would love to be able to take credit for the all the baking and the stunning first birthday cake, but the three little animals are my only claim to it! Otherwise, Kathy you are amazing!

So from Dave, Zach and I, Happy New Year!! Thank you so much for sharing 2013 with us.. And we wish you all the best for the year ahead.   

Bring on 2014!

Claire, Matt & Daniel | Family Photography | Beach

One of our favourite places for family photographs is at the beach.  The kids love it and is the perfect place for a fun and relaxed shoot.  So we were really excited to head out to the beach for a photo shoot with Claire, Matt and their absolutely adorable son Daniel.  And what a cutie! With those gorgeous blue eyes and dark hair. Even though Zach and Daniel are the same age, Zach has a serious case of hair envy!

Clarie and Matt, thanks for a fabulous afternoon, you are a beautiful family!

Renee & Andrew | Wedding Photography | Auckland Super Yacht

We all know Auckland as the City of Sails. So we absolutely loved being able to capture Renee and Andrew's wedding held at Orakei Marina aboard the luxury super yacht, the Pacific Mermaid.. In you guessed it, the City of Sails!

To allow more time for sailing Auckland Harbour and celebrating with friends and family,  Renee and Andrew had their first look at the marina pier.  The perfect place for a special moment together before the ceremony.. And of course, some photographs of this gorgeous couple. 

Michael Savage park was the backdrop for the location shoot, where Renee and Andrew also had photographs with Jorja, Zavier and family.

With her fabulous baby bump, Renee looked radiant and stunning as she shared vows with Andrew in an intimate ceremony with friends and family aboard the Pacific Mermaid. 

Renee and Andrew thank you so much for allowing us photograph your first day together as husband and wife.   You are a gorgeous family and we look forward to what the future holds for you.

Anna & Cameron | Wedding Photography | Auckland

We had the pleasure of photographing the gorgeous Anna and fiancé Cameron for an engaement session ealier in the year {see the post here} And while editing the photos Dave made two very accurate observations..

One. "Anna has a fantastic smile"

And two.  "They look like they will be very happy together"

Well, both these two things were even more evident when these two, became one.

Anna looked a picture of timeless elegance and beauty set against their chosen country cottage theme.  Purple freesias, lavender and roses for the bouquet, a stunning gown with lace, embroidery and beading detail, all so pretty and lovely!

For the bridal party photographs Anna and Cameron chose Devonport on Auckland's North Shore.  And what a fantastic couple to photograph, they were both smiling the whole day! Even though the weather was, well, let say fresh, they both laughed and had so much fun together anyway!

Anna and Cameron thank you so much for sharing your beautiful day with us.. And we know that you indeed, both will be very happy together!
