Mason's final Baby Grow session!

Written by Angela Penn on February 19th, 2015.      0 comments

Last week I shot Mason's very last Baby Grow session!!!  Waaaaaahhhh! The Baby Grow programme is a fantastic way to see how much your baby has grown over the past year or so and to keep hold of those beautiful wee milestones forever!  Here are some of the images from his cake smash session!!!

penny & dean's port hills engagement session

Written by Angela Penn on February 13th, 2015.      0 comments

The weather looked ominous for Penny & Dean's engagement shoot this week but the rain held off just enough to take some beautiful shots in the Port Hills.

This loved up couple are getting married in their home country of South Africa in May so they asked me to do their engagement shoot - just wish I could shoot their wedding - these two are soooo good in front of the camera (despite telling me they were a bit nervous!).

All the best for your wedding you two. I'll be looking forward to seeing photos - it's going to be amazing! x

vicky & mark's akaroa wedding at mt vernon lodge

Written by Angela Penn on February 8th, 2015.      0 comments

I had the very great pleasure of photographing Vicky & Mark's wedding on the 27th January in Akaroa - a place I LOVE to be and LOVE to shoot. My friend Paul Tatterson was second shooting and it was very cool to be able to hang out with him and shoot (plus I scored his fantastic images!).

Here's how Vicky & Mark's day panned out...

Vicky is a very clever girl and made lots of things on the wedding day including the girls' gorgeous bouquets!  Vicky's included some beautiful family heirlooms.

The couple swapped presents and love letters before the ceremony, without seeing each other.  Very cute.

Mark and Vicky received some awesome videos from friends and family from the UK. I don't what it is about UK humour but I think it's the best.  (I could be a little biased as I'm born in the UK).

My little helper lets me get my lighting sorted.... and then we're ready for the first dance!  Assembly Required are awesome, as usual.
