I’m trying to get back into the habit of having fresh flowers in the apartment. As soon as I saw peonies at the supermarket, I jumped at the chance to pick some up. Found the ones that were the least open and scooped them up quick. Such gorgeous colour.
These are the first peonies I’ve ever bought so I found it really interesting how their life stages go. Their colour changed dramatically over the period of a few days. Went from gorgeous bright pink, to an extremely pale yellow. They only lasted a mere 5 days before their petals were falling off. Perhaps there is some special trick to slow down that process. If any one knows how to make them last longer I would love to know about it!
It felt like quite a long week and I’m super glad it’s Friday now. This weekend will be spent doing some admin stuff, before we kick back into wedding mode. We have a few in succession and then before we know it, Christmas is going to be knocking on our doorstep. Busy busy times!
Does anyone have any fun plans for the weekend? I’m sure anything is going to be more interesting than mine haha.
So, I don’t even use a camera strap, but now that I’ve seen these ones I really badly want one! The generic Canon one just doesn’t cut it after seeing these ones from Bloom Theory. The sequins, the bows, the ruffles! What more could a girl want?! I’d have a hard time deciding on which one I would get though. I’m leaning towards the top right – simple, grey and a sweet little bow. Which one would you choose?
P.S. Christmas is coming…
Happy Monday everyone! Today wasn’t as torturous as Monday’s usually tend to be which was great. Just eased on in to it. Had an awesome weekend too – two days of location scouting for up-coming weddings! We had beautiful weather and it was just really nice to do some driving around and wandering with Hook. My fav.
While I’m on the topic of our wedding photography – check out the awesome Night Owl USBs we had custom made for our clients! They arrived last week and we couldn’t help sharing a few shots of them as we took them out of the box. They’re exactly how we wanted them, poking their little heads out of the side of your computer to say ‘hello!’. Now I have to start working out how we will be packaging these for our amazing clients!
Yep. I am the most unfit person ever. I just cannot do any kind of physical activity without basically dying. The only excercise I do is walking 30 minutes to work, and then 30 minutes home. And it’s a completely flat walk too. No hills involved. So it’s safe to say that I’m a huge weakling.
I’m also allergic (I’m not exaggerating) to physical activities… but that’s irrelevant.
Brit (pictured above a few times) and Hook made the trek up The Mount with absolutely no problems. I made them stop about 6 times, and Hook even had to push me on my back to help me get up it. I’m such a loser. Haha.
I’m so glad that I persevered and made it to the top. Such stunning views! Everything seems so insignificant from up there. All problems fade away. It’s just the sun, the air and the view. My favourite. Definitely going to force myself to go up there again when I’m back in the Bay of Plenty for Christmas!
Anywayyyy. It’s Friday now. So glad the weekend is upon us! We have a heap of location scouting to do this weekend for some weddings coming up in the next few weeks. AMPED!
What are you all doing this weekend? Anything fun planned?
On the first day of Spring, Hook and I shot our first wedding of the season at the brand new venue, Abbeville Estate. It was such an awesome wedding to start off what is really our ‘first’ wedding season as A Couple Of Night Owls!
Check out the full post on our blog!
When Kirsty and John first contacted us, they had me at “Abbeville Estate”. I had heard about this new venue a while before they had emailed, and I had been dying to check it out! The venue has a church, a homestead and a barn! What more could you want? Plus – this ended up being the very first wedding ever held there and we got to shoot it!
Kirsty and the girls looked absolutely gorgeous! I was in complete awe of them as they were getting ready, and the second I saw that dress… wow! And little Phoebe was super adorable!
I’m so excited for the rest of this wedding season. We have a few more to go for 2012 and then a really full on Summer at the start of 2013. Cannot wait!
P.S. A huge thank you to Julia from Studio Home for getting Kirsty and John onto us. Perfect fit!
