2017 in Review

Wow what a year 2017 has been!

We kicked off 2017 by announcing the winner of our Win a Gold Creek Wedding. A fundraising initiative to help support the fight against cancer through the Tour De Cure, with a complete wedding valued at over $30,000 as the first prize. The first half of the year was busy with weddings and saw us heading out of town to some beautiful Wedding locations - the NSW South Coast, Kangaroo Valley and Bowral as well as some favourite local spots in Canberra.

As the first half of the year wound down Doug snuck in a trip to Vanuatu. We took advantage of the quiet time during winter to run some extra courses for Vita Academy having some fun with Night Photography and a day trip out past Cooma to chase the sunset and star trails. Doug, looking to take full advantage of the quiet time, took ANOTHER holiday, this time to Fiji.  Sam had her annual trip to the snow for the sled dog races, which resulted in some great images and more than a few laughs.

Our support of Tour de Cure continued with Sam heading off on her third Signature tour, this time the team travelled from Mt Hotham to Hobart, and also later in the year she joined the Commonwealth Bank's Can4Cancer tour.  Doug prefer's to join in with the gitzy star studded events and came along for both the Snow Ball and Spring Lunch.  We are proud to be able to volunteer our photography skills to such an awesome organisation contributing so much towards the fight against cancer.

Before we knew it Spring had arrived and the second round of weddings kicked off, starting with our beautiful "Win a Gold Creek Wedding" winners Tracey & Wes.  So Many amazing weddings...........It was also time for the hectic, fast paced Fashfest (Canberra's leading fashion show) which Doug was Asst. Director of Photography.

With so many amazing things crammed into 2017 we have put together just a small selection of our personal highlights to share with you.  So please enjoy our video slideshow and a few images below.  Thank you to all of you that shared in the good times with us!

We have heaps of exciting things planned for the new year, but for now enjoy the Christmas and New Year celebrations and we will see you all in 2018!!!
