About this blog...

***** THIS BLOG HAS BEEN REPLACED IN 2012 ***** If you've come aross this blog site by accident, pop over to www.krystaguille.com for my current one *****

One lazy day in 2009, I decided to embark on a photo-a-day-for-a-year challenge. I set myself a goal to upload a different photo every day - some are of my gorgeous clients, some are of my ever obliging family and friends.

Well, I reached the end of the challenge year, and while I didn't quite succeed at a photo-a-day, this blog became part of my weekly routine.

And so I continue...at a new location.

Sweet love... {wedding}

Hope you're not hungry.  Here's some sweet treats from John + Sharna's garden-party wedding last weekend...

Holiday plans... {office hours}

I know it’s wedding season when...

* I consume 5-6 cups of coffee a day.

* It looks like a bomb exploded in my office (and my house!).

* A message from the cleaner to say she's retiring prompts me to consider taking Valium for the first time.

* Editing with wine becomes tempting... at 9am.

* I dream about work or worse, have nightmares about being late for a wedding.

* I don't notice obvious things like that my son was the only child in free-dress at school yesterday!

* I get through truck loads of audio books.  Need any books suggestions? I'm your girl.

I'm working extra hard these next two weeks to get all my editing / ordering up to date so that I can close shop FOR TWO WHOLE WEEKS from December 22nd to January 4th.

This will give me some time to enjoy my family and to recharge the batteries before the second half of the wedding season kicks off.

I'm so very lucky to have such gorgeous couples (like Clare + Travis above).

The joy I feel on their wedding days makes it all worth it.    I have so many wonderful weddings and sessions to share on this blog ... watch this space!

Sharna + John + Red, November 2011... {engagement}

Because it's Sharna + John's wedding weekend, I thought it was time I put some of their engagement session photos up. 

Now, I'm not normally into over-the-top silhouette photos in a big way, but I was completely suckered in by the amazing location & the powerful presence of "Red", Sharna's very handsome horse - so please forgive me for being so frivolous!

My last wedding couple for 2011!   See you this weekend Sharna + John!

Families... {wedding}

It was a pretty unique experience for me on the weekend...

Firstly, the bridemaids were all sisters of the bride . (Aren't they beautiful - especially the one in white!)

To add to that, the groomsmen were all brothers of the groom. (Can you guess which two are twins?)

On top of that, my brother  shot the wedding with me. ( I made him stand there like that to test the light).

And my parents were guests at the wedding!

Plus mum & her friends helped to decorate the marquee with floral creations!

And one last special connection.  Their Minister, Ed, married Dave and I, and christened our daughter at the Tenterden Church.

Special day.

'Nough said.

Jess + Mark, 4 November, 2011 {wedding}

The day before Jess & Mark were due to tie the know, we had torrential rain - flooding!  And the morning of their big day was also iffy with frequent showers passing through.

But something changed - one minute we wondering about cover from the rain. The next minute the sun shone & the I even wondered if I should have brought along the sunscreen!

Jess & Mark wanted a low-key wedding surrounded by an intimate group of family & friends (which included loads of kids!) so Eyre Park was the perfect setting for this beautiful wedding.  The kids ran wild in the sunshine! Such a a happy day.

Enjoy the slideshow...

Elizabeth + Fabian, December 2012 {engagement}

With their wedding just around the corner, we managed to sneak in an engagement session last week  with Elizabeth + Fabian.  The plan was to meet at the Wind Farm, because this was where Fabian popped the big question to Elizabeth.  

But alas, 45 km/hr winds made that an unwise decision. So,  here's "Plan B".
