Last weekend we shot the last wedding of 2015 and Marty & Gemma's wedding was the perfect day to round out the 2015 wedding season!
This year has been an epic year for Heidi Horton Photography and has seen us shoot a total of 10 fabulous weddings. If you've followed our journey on the blog, you'll have seen just how awesome each of these weddings were & how awesome our clients are. What I cannot emphasise enough is how much of an absolute privilege it has been to document these weddings and to make so many new friends!
As I looked back on the year, I compiled some of the photos we've taken behind-the-scenes & I thought this is actually a cool way to show you how much fun we have on a wedding day & just how much I love my job!
Taking photos of each other taking photos...it never gets old!
That time my couple helicoptered up to Jackson Peak for photos!
And I have another helicopter ride coming up this summer too! Did I mention I love my job?!!
We have photographed weddings at some amazing locations this year! From lakefront at Pisa Moorings to overlooking the mountain ranges at Fiordland Lodge and even at the beautiful chapel at Hawthorn Den outside of Gore where we actually got married!
I wouldn't be the photographer I am without this guy! He pushes me forward, gives me courage to dream and he's the best darn second shooter I could dream of. I told him just last week that he needs to stop improving his skills so fast because otherwise I'll end up being second shooter for him soon ;-)
He will probably curse at me putting all these photos of him on the blog...ummm I love you babe!
As well as being an awesome second shooter, he's the perfect lighting test model.
And he's an ace at carrying all our gear!
Me in my element.
I'm not going to pretend it's not fun dressing up for weddings! I'm always on the look out for comfortable dresses and heels (because I'm a shorty and in heels I feel like a professional). And I think I need to extend Matt's shirt collection - he seems to have picked a favourite this season ;-)
It's embarrassing some of facial expressions Matt manages to capture...
I shall call this my "on a mission" face.
I'm pretty sure I was actually smiling here, but it kinda looks like I'm in pain.
This is my "it's so bright out here!" face :-)
This year I've fixed hair-ups on location, I've carried flowers, held flutes of champagne and made sure cathedral veils don't blow away in the wind. It's all part of my service ;-)
This was just last weekend, but I have no idea what I was doing here! No one was paying attention anyway...
And this is what happens when photographers try to take selfies with their big cameras!
So that's a wrap for 2015. What an epic year of weddings, all thanks to our amazing couples for the privilege to document their amazing days!
I am so excited for the fun & adventures 2016 will bring us!
