Aaron and Chelsea had their wedding ceremony at The Orchard at Lake Tarawera, and then had the reception at Skyline Skyrides. This was a bubbly fun filled wedding. Lorne was my second shooter for the day.
Here are the photo highlights:
The flowergirl was the niece of the bride and was adorable.
The ceremony at The Orchard, The Landing, Lake Tarawera.
The Wedding Portraits were done at the Government Gardens.
Then it was off to Skyline Skyrides for the reception. Lorne went down the luges with the bridal party, and I went with the couple in the shuttle and caught the photos as they came down.
The speeches were a hoot and then there was the game. The Bride and Groom were blindfolded and given one of each others shoes. They were then asked a series of questions like "Who wears the pants?", and they had to raise the shoe of the person who fits the answer.
The bouquet toss. Who do you think catches it?
If you guessed the lady in red, you were right!
Dancing time and while I was catching the romance, Lorne got some cool pics with the lighting.
Thanks for letting me share your wedding day Aaron and Chelsea
Brush off the dust and cobwebs and bring out my croquet set, summer is here!
Croquet is one of my favourite summertime things to do. Not the smooth lawned, white clothes, and hushed toned croquet, but the back yard variety where:
So who's up for a few game challenges this summer :)
Creating a photo board template
For Catherine :)
Hope this makes sense, it's how I do it. I now have a folder full of different sized templates with different shapes.
File - New
Choose your name. Make it descriptive so you know what the template holds. Write a size in cm as I use the photoshop rulers in cm.
Set resolution 120 or 72 for the web. 240 or 300 for print.
Choose a colour background that will frame your photos.
At this stage you can save your template as a photoshop file to use anytime you want, with different photos. Save it as a photoshop file so it keeps the guidelines and different layers.
You can size the photos so they have a white gap/frame surrounding them. But I'm going make them flush. These are just random photos in my web file as demo, that's why some have my logo on them.
Layer - Flatten Image - save as a jpeg and this is my final image. Remember can you go and reuse the photoshop template file with different photos another time.
Hope that was helpful.
