2014 / A year in review
As each year passes by we are left standing on the 31st of December telling each other how quickly this year has gone. And each year just goes quicker than the one that came before it.
As I sat down to choose a single photo from each month and I simply couldn't. Twenty fourteen has been massive, and so so so much happened, as you'll see when you scroll down. One photo just wouldn't be enough, choosing two photos wasn’t nearly enough to show what happened. But painstakingly I managed to select 24 photos that were highlight moments for me (there's still a lot I missed!).
I was lucky enough to capture a very intimate wedding at the Hamilton gardens for a friend. A beautiful wedding need not be extravagant and lavish. I got to show off a great part of our country to a couple of Canadians and an America. I love New Zealand.
One of the smartest most humble souls I know and have the honour of calling my friend graduated. The summer weather hung around a little longer and trips to the beach were frequent.
After the wedding Monita and I made our way from the west coast to the east coast of Canada, and than back from the east to the west of America. It was beyond amazing.
Before heading back home I spent a few days in Sydney. July was a slow cold month but it was a good time to get on top of work and catch up with old friends.
I braved the cold and spent a very educational day with some very talented and well respected photographers. Oh, and another trip to the beach even in winter.
I found the coolest mini forest in the middle of suburbia, and had one amazing engagement shoot in it. As if I didn't have enough time away, Monita and I squeezed in a long weekend get away to Russell in the Bay of Islands.
Summer was meant to be around the corner but we were given cold winds and gloomy clouds. From a portrait shoot turned afternoon out in Auckland to my second time to the Red Barn for another amazing wedding. Sometimes the weather just worked in our favour.
So there you have it, twenty fourteen in twenty four photos. I am so blessed to have been given so many opportunities and lucky to have crossed paths with so many amazing people in so many different places.
