I’m recently back from attending the live judging of New Zealand’s only photo print awards, the annual NZIPP Iris Awards in Wellington.

This is the first time I’ve entered since 2017 when I won the title of Wedding Classic Photographer of the year! This year, I was also extremely happy to not only get an all elusive Gold Award but also be a Finalist in Wedding In Camera Artistry!

The awards are open to all New Zealand and International professional photographers and the art of printing is a huge part of the judging. I printed my images myself this year for the first time, so extra happy to achieve a GOLD!

These images were created for my lovely couples at their real weddings in Auckland, Wanaka and at Mt Nicholas Station in Queenstown. They each have beautiful stories around them and all remind me of exactly why I shoot weddings and why it is so fulfilling!
