It’s now 1.50am and I’m sitting here editing photos.
I just watched a slideshow of images by Amy Deputy – an American photographer who was recently voted in the Top 10 wedding photographers in the world.
It’s a documentation of her photographic journey – beginning with the first image she took, and following through up until her most recent work.
Much of the slideshow is dedicated to documenting the illness of her young son & her husband – such amazingly powerful images.
I’d encourage you to watch this. It’s about 10 mins long, so make sure you have the time, and no distractions – just let yourself get absorbed into the images, and the quotes along with them.
This is what inspires me. If my images can ever move people the way that I was moved watching this, I’ll die happy.

Today was the first Saturday since sometime in January that we didn’t have a wedding!
We had no idea what to do with ourselves…. so we shot over to Tauranga this morning and caught up with Pahoia United.
These guys are an amazing school rock band, who we also did a shoot for last year (some of you long-time blog stalkers will remember this – for everyone else, here’s the blog link!)
This time we went for a more crisp & clean look, instead of the graffiti walls that we used last time.
It was a great chance to get some shots of the new members (as only 3 of last years band still go to the school!) and catch up with some familiar faces.
A huge shout-out to Mr. E – (in the middle of the 3rd shot) who goes totally above & beyond for these kids, what an awesome teacher.
You can check out the bands website here – www.pahoiaunited.com and have a listen to some of their music or watch some music videos. Very talented!!
Anyway – here’s a few of the shots from today’s shoot – enjoy!
