I’ve been back in Wellington for a few weeks now, Fiji was beautiful, relaxing, and the 26 degree temperatures were a nice change from the frosty Wellington winter. If anyone’s considering a winter escape I highly recommend Fiji, and the Rydges Hideaway resort. Since then i’ve been working hard finishing off albums from this summer, encouraging and helping the few couples who haven’t yet decided what they want in their album.
As promised here are a few photos from my trip.
This is a bay near the resort where I went scuba diving, we saw a couple of sharks and some really colorful fish!

Sunset over the water
This is one of my favorites, taken from the beach at around 10pm one evening. It’s a long exposure photo showing the blue sky at night, along with the stars. The palm trees are blurry as the shutter was left open for around 30 seconds. I use this technique occasionally at weddings, though I usually combine it with a touch of off camera flash to light a couple at sunset.
Over the next couple of weeks i’ll show some photos from Paula & Stevens wedding at Bracken Ridge, and a few photos of the family portraits I did of Cindy, Mike and the kids. Cindy & Mike were the third or fourth couple who’s wedding I photographed, it was a pleasure to see them again and take some photos of their young family.
