Patina Photo: New Zealand Wedding Photographer of the Year








NZIPP Wedding Photographer of the Year

We were completely blown away to be officially presented with 3 major awards at the NZIPP - the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography Iris Awards. Michelle took out the Wedding Classic category to be named Classic Wedding Photographer of the Year (she was also named an associate of the NZIPP). James was named Creative Wedding Photographer of the Year as well being awarded the Highest Scoring Print for the whole 2015 Iris awards!

We are indescribably thankful to our friends, church and family who have been a huge support and encouraged us every step of the way, to our fellow photographers who have inspired and mentored us in countless ways and to our incredible clients who have believed in us and trusted us enough to climb crazy hills, brave wild wind and rain, and to open their hearts and souls so we can capture their precious memories for them.

We entered 13 images in total, 12 of which were awarded with Gold, Silver and Bronze medals; these are our medal winning enteries:
