NZIPP Iris Awards 2014 – Wedding Album & Classic Photographer of the Year

August 6th, 2014 by Jason

And the winner of the Wedding Album Category is… Jason Naylor.

My heart skipped a beat, and I rushed to the stage to take my award and mumble some sort of acceptance speech. I’ve had my eye on the Wedding Album award for a few years now – when we usually spend 12hrs capturing a wedding day, a wedding album seems the most appropriate way to present that. It was an honour for the judges to recognise our creative album, and thanks to Rachel & Sam for the most amazing theatrical wedding.

I’d barely sat in my chair, when then came the 2nd announcement:

Wedding Classic… Jason Naylor!

This was unexpected. This left me speechless. I didn’t know what to say. Winning 2 NZIPP categories – Wedding Album and Wedding Classic – in the same year has me absolutely floored. Again, thanks to our clients for letting us try a few things and create something different.

‘Humbled’ is one word to describe it. ‘Flabbergasted’ is another. I’m also genuinely stoked, happy and excited.

My good buddy Jake Thomas Photography took out the Wedding Creative award. Top job!

Kudos to the other finalists: Jenny Siaosi Photographer; Katherine Williams @ Tandem Photography; and Clinton Lloyd @ Lovelight Wedding Cinema & Photography. Your work was creative, innovative and beautiful, and had me genuinely not expecting these awards. I’m honoured.

Cherie & Choy – Otago engagement session – day 1

July 30th, 2014 by Jason

Cherie & Choy are huge travellers, and New Zealand holds a special place in their heart. Before getting married in their native Singapore, they wanted a final trip to the South Island of New Zealand, and some pre-wedding engagement photos to celebrate their relationship.

We spent 2 days travelling the Central Otago countryside, sharing stories of our respective travels, drinking coffees, eating Fergburgers, understanding each other’s culture, and of course capturing some imagery of Cherie & Choy in this beautiful country we call New Zealand.

This is day 1: starting up The Remarkables in Queenstown, we drove to Glenorchy, then found Paradise, and back via Arrowtown to Wanaka. Enjoy.

Sophie & Brett – Zealandia – sneak peek

May 2nd, 2014 by Jason

Here’s Sophie & Brett, a couple of weeks ago, at one of our favourite Wellington venues: Zealandia Ecosanctuary. I love the surroundings, the sheer amounts of green, and that beautiful late-evening sunshine on the final evening of daylight savings.

Ahhh summer.

The challenges of working from home!

April 14th, 2014 by Jason

Whilst I generally try to work from our shared studio as much as possible, occasionally I like to work from home.

Our daughter Elliana makes this rather difficult. Imagine turning around every 20mins to see this at the office door!
