Rach & Pete's Wedding

I was privileged to be asked to take the wedding photo's of my boss & good friend Rachael. Held at the picturesque setting of Te Mahia in the Marlorough Sounds at Labour weekend. We travelled up on Friday, a beautifully warm and sunny day. It was wonderful to catch up with friends, in particular Brid & Hayden from Melbourne, and instantly picked up where we left off. The next morning sadly the weather wasn't so warm, infact very low cloud, drizzly & chilly. (Good for photography) Rachael, her sister Sandra, and very good friend Lee looked stunning as did her niece as flowergirl.
We had such a fun time taking the photo's, as these images will show!!
Thanks Rach for having the confidence in me, I hope you will be happy with them.

A Weekend for the girls @ Lake Tekapo

Initially the plan was to go to Wanaka for four nights, but circumstances changes, we opted to go to Tekapo just for the weekend. We (Alice, Pat, Suezette & I) travelled up on Friday afternoon, stopping at a cafe in Fairlie for the 1st of many coffee's. The weather forcast was not the best, but that was never going to be a problem to us. We awoke on Saturday morning to snow falling, later changing to rain which continued all day.....a day indoors, spent reading, swopping ideas & helping each other with camera settings and computor skills - lots of fun and a really relaxing day.
Sunday, once again woke to snow, but fortunately the sun came out mid morning so we set off to do some photography......below is some of my images.

Saturday evening I used my Lensbaby along with a glass of are the results.
