This weekend was the first in some months where we weren't shooting a wedding, so we headed off to a slice of Heaven that's not so far from home, to soak in some love & fresh air.. What we found there was perfect...

Our thoughts are with the people of Nepal...

Written by Doug on April 26th, 2015.      0 comments


Once upon a time we visited the most amazing place on earth!! Nepal...
Not only did we fall in love with the landscape, we fell in love with the people.
The Nepalese are the most amazing people, so thoughtful, peaceful, and compassionate.

Coming from Christchurch, we have a relative understanding as to what you are going through.
For that reason and speaking from experience our thoughts and prayers are magnified..

So all the way from New Zealand, we are thinking of you..

I feel rather brave sharing this. In one mind I want to keep things on a completely professional level, however there’s another side that’s saying “Hey, you’re only human, and you’re going through something big - Go on.. share, don’t be afraid, stay open!”.
Sharing joys in life is easy peasy… sharing the journey of grief though, is a whole nother story. Especially when you are still in the midst of it. But this is the reason I want to!!!

Before & After's ~ 2012 vs 2015

Written by Heather on April 22nd, 2015.      1 comments

I've always loved before and after's. And I enjoy revisiting old photos and being proud of what has been shot from years back... but then being absolutely horrified by the edit. I always make an effort to remind myself that I was proud of the edit at the time and it's A OKAY to be proud of myself now for how my editing has developed in the time since this photo. Good healthy growing... which will never stop.
Here's a photo from 2012. And reedited to how I see it today. I wonder how I'd edit it in another 3 years time! ... Read on...

New to Christchurch...

Written by Doug on April 8th, 2015.      0 comments


If you happened to pick up the latest edition of Avenues Magazine, which came out with The Press last week, you might have spotted some of my photos of the new architecture that's popping up around Christchurch nowadays..
The ever-changing landscape of the Christchurch CBD is now moving from a "What's left to take down?" to a "Hey, there's an empty space, let's fill it, and quickly.."

Where there is love, there is life...

Mahatma Gandhi was onto a good thing when he said "Where there is love, there is life"...
Our friends and my beautiful bud of 23 years, is just a month shy of meeting their son and first born child.
This is a couple full of gorgeous character, colour and imagination...
A couple so beautiful, bold and spirited.
A couple who use their hearts to their greatest extent.
...These are our friends... so full of grace and true love in this moment as pending parents.
