2014 NZIPP Wedding Album of the Year

Rachel & Sam

In addition to the Wedding – Classic category, Jason also took home the trophy for Wedding Album of the Year.

The judges called it “great photography meets great design“, and that’s something we pride ourselves in. It’s even in our name! We’re not just photographers, we’re an all-round creative team, and every aspect of our presentation is carefully considered.

 

As with previous years (2012, 2013) we’re always aiming to create something different, something unique, something not seen before.

Rachel & Sam’s theatrical wedding was an obvious choice, even before we’d started on the design, and during brain-storming and concepts, we started creating the idea of a movie/theatre “storyboard”.

The following design was born. Rachel & Sam, in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream“.

Amanda & Geoff – NZIPP Iris Awards Wedding Album finalist

Boof! POW! Wham.

At the 2012 NZIPP Iris Awards I was looking to enter something a little different. A little unique. A little more rock ‘n roll than a traditional wedding album.

The idea of a comic book came to me, and using Amanda & Geoff’s Wellington wedding I managed to craft a pop-art, stylised comic book artbook. It received a Bronze medal, and placed me as a finalist in the Wedding Album category!

Hope you enjoy the story of Amanda & Geoff’s wedding, as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Thanks Amanda & Geoff!

Big news: I’m NZIPP ‘Q’ qualified

Every day is a pretty awesome day in the WE DO household, but last month was something a little bit more special than most. You see, I (Jason) received notification that I passed my NZIPP ‘Q’ assessment and am now classified as a fully professional member of the NZIPP.

So, what does it mean?

It means I’ve been identified as attaining a credible quality standard. It means I have a  “commitment to running their businesses in a professional way, with skill and knowledge” – but you already knew that, right? :)

It means I’ll appear in a pretty select group of photographers in the NZIPP directory, alongside some of my most admired peers in the industry.

And it means I get to flaunt the NZIPP logo around a little bit too!

A few images from the successful album are below, courtesy of Matt & Kel’s amazing wedding day. If you want to see the winning album –  or any of our other work – in person, please get in touch! We’d love the opportunity to present our albums and slideshows to you.

The Album

Arriving on the doorsteps of Anna and Mike‘s Abu Dhabi apartment today was their wedding album.

Beautifully constructed by our album providers in the USA, this digitally printed lay-flat coffee table album is a supremely contemporary take on the wedding album, we think absolutely perfect for today’s modern couples.

When ordering one of these beautiful albums with our Wedding Photography packages Aneta will custom-design each and every page in the album, taking into account your feedback and favourite images to present a stunning collection of your special day.  The full page printing and lay-flat design means we can take advantage of the entire double page of the 10″x10″ spread and you barely notice the seam.

The printing quality is of a very high standard: Epson pigment-based inks are used on 2mm thick pages that are cured and set to avoid any further ink rubbing off. Let’s just say these fine art albums will stand the test of time!

The Photobooth Guestbook

As part of our Photobooth package we offer a popular guestbook addon. The guestbook enables the photosheets to be placed alongside personalised messages from your guests, and will always serve as a reminder of the fun times had by your guests at your event. We’ll manage the guestbook, helping your guests stick the photosheet correctly and ensuring they treat it with the respect it deserves.

The ironic thing is that we very rarely actually see the completed guestbook ourselves! At the end of the evening we hand the guestbook over, prints and all, and carry our Photobooth out of the venue! Well we finally managed to sneak a few pictures of a couple of recent guestbooks for your enjoyment. Check these out:
