Wedding and portrait photographers on the island have led the field again at the annual New Zealand Institute of Pro- fessional Photography awards. For the second year in a row Emma Hughes snapped up the pres- tigious wedding album of the year category. Ms Hughes says: It's great because the award is for the consistency of the whole shoot as well as the artistry involved in creating the album.'' A wide range of insti- tute awards in other categories was also claimed by Ms Hughes, as well as Phillipa Karn and newcomers to the island Lauretta Goode and Blair Quax of Shine Studios. Ms Hughes says the Waiheke wedding busi- ness is booming and she'll be one of many exhibitors at the Wai- heke Wedding and Event Expo at Cable Bay Vineyards on November 5 and 6. She is delighted her friends Loretta and Blair have moved to the island. There is plenty of work to go around.'' Ms Hughes also does portrait photography and won awards in that field as well. I love working with children, capturing their true essence in a candid moment.'' Ms Karn was delighted to be named an associate member of the institute this year. What I like about these awards is that it gives me the chance to be recognised as an artist in the field of photography,'' she says. Ms Goode was a finalist for wedding pho- tographer of the year, a coveted award won by her partner Mr Quax last year. The pair usually covers around a dozen weddings on the island each summer and recently decided to call the island home. We love the lifestyle, the people and the atmosphere of Waiheke and look forward to cap- turing many more gorgeous weddings here,'' Ms Goode says.
