Jono and Terri get married in April, which will be here before we know because this year is absolutely flying by! Last week we spent a beautiful evening with these two lovebirds on the Cochrane farm near Clinton for their engagement session, catching up before their big day and getting to know them both a bit better as a couple (although Terri and I were actually the same year at high school! And we shot Jono's brothers wedding last season!).
I know that Jono and Terri were a bit nervous about doing these portraits, but they embraced it and just laughed their way through the session (which I love!), we chatted about wedding plans and I had a great time capturing them in the stunning late afternoon light. Murphy dog took a bit of the pressure off Jono & Terri too, trying to steal the show - he didn't get the memo that the photos weren't actually about him haha so you'll see him pop up in most of the photos!
That engagement rock is stunning! Jono you did well!
After a walk around the yards and garden, we ventured up to the top of the farm.
Jono and Terri we can't wait for April to arrive - I know your wedding day is going to be a beautiful, big celebration and lots of fun to be a part of! It was really great to catch up last week and create some portraits on the farm with you both (and Murphy!). x
Regan and Maigan get married next month in Twizel and we can't wait to be there to document their wedding day!
We caught up with them recently in Piano Flat, and unfortunately about 10 minutes before their engagement shoot it started pouring with rain (which wasn't supposed to happen according to the forecast!). But that didn't spoil the fun we had & these two were such good sports embracing the rain and smiling through. We know that rain, hail or (hopefully!) shine in Feb we will have a lot of fun with these two on their wedding day - I have a feeling it's going to be an epic celebration!
I know poor Maigan had straightened her hair for this session, but five minutes in her gorgeous curls were back! I hope you two both dried off quickly on your way home from this session guys!
Bring on Twizel Regan & Maigan - we are so excited! x
Is there anything better for the soul than walking barefoot on the beach?
Last Friday Matt and I headed to an engagement session at Blackhead Beach with Rob and Holly. It was everything I dream of for a shoot! An epic location with special meaning, incredible sunset light and most importantly awesome people who we loved catching up with. These two were so much fun to have in front of my camera and I am very excited for their wedding day in March!
Rob and Holly have a shared love for the ocean and travelling. Their favourite place in the world is Bali, where they've spent a lot of time. And if I had to describe these two and their relationship with one word, that word would be FUN. Their entire engagement session was filled with laughter, great chat and a sense of adventure.
Holly you're going to be the most beautiful bride!!!
Oh boy that was hard to pick out just a few favourites for your blog guys! I can't wait for you to see all the photos. I'm obsessed. Thank you for being awesome, we had such a cool evening with you both at Blackhead Beach.
Bring on the wedding! xx
