We first met Dwayne & Brittney last year at a past couple's wedding. They were both in the bridal party and I remember they told us they'd be in touch once they started their own wedding planning...and here we are! These two get married in a few months & last weekend we shot up to Wanaka for their engagement session. Dwayne & Brittney are best friends, they've been together for 5 years now and have a beautiful 7 month old daughter - Rylee. We laughed our whole way through their engagement session and cannot wait for their winter wedding day to arrive!
It was blowing a gale up the lake on the afternoon of the session, but I managed to find a sheltered spot for these photos that still highlighted the lake, the views and the very last of that warm autumn colour. We couldn't start this session without first getting some gorgeous photos with Miss Rylee! So cute! Though it was probably a good thing Rylee hung out with her uncle while her mum & dad did the rest of their engagement session because she would have stolen the show. 😍
Can we just appreciate how awesome the colours of Britt & Dwayne's outfits work for this location and the autumn colours! Perfection. 👌
The story goes that Dwayne had this beautiful engagement ring for years (this may or may not be an exaggeration!), in fact he took it with him all round America on their OE, but it took him until early this year to finally pop the question to Brittney. I guess someone was living into the idea that good things take time hey!! It's so fun hearing couple's engagement stories. Most of the time the guys have a different take on it to the ladies!
Bring on August friends! We're so excited for your big day. xx
