What and amazing day Aletia and Richard had for their wedding at Paper Road Vinyard in The Wairarapa. The whole day was full of highlights, at what was the best of family weddings.

BIanca Mar'e Fletcher wins The Prestigious Photographic Society                                              of New Zealand's Youth Award

Woolf Photography are totally proud of our newest award winner Bianca Mar'e Fletcher. Bianca joined our team in 2017, and has taken little time to get up to speed in taking on some interesting assignments and also winning awards.  What is really special is The PSNZ Youth Award was implemented  nearly 40 years ago by Ronald Woolf, Woolf Photography's founder.  Over the years of the PSNZ Youth Award, many  young photographers having gained the award, have gone on to greater achievements. 1990 winner Melanie Burford, went on to win a Pulitzer Prize, with the Dallas Morning News, while 1994 winner Melinda Baigent, went on to be the first Kiwi to score a perfect 100 in an international professional photography competition at The World Awards of Excellence in Las Vegas. There are many other young photographers, who having won the PSNZ Youth Award, have launched careers, and then become standard bearers for photography in New Zealand.

Bianca,  collected her award,  and Silver Medal, in  Auckland.  Bianca has been in the photography industry for nearly ten years now, and gained her degree in photography from UCOL in Palmerston North. She is already a very fine Portrait, Fashion, and Events Photographer, and will surely go onto  to even greater things in the future.
