Fraser and Sarah's Moke Lake engagement session last weekend is the embodiment of all that we love about our job as photographers! A fun-loving couple, a special location, plenty of laughter & getting to know our couples better before their wedding day.
These adventurous lovebirds have also got us so inspired with the way they chose to do their engagement session! I encourage our couples to treat these sessions like a date night and to choose a location that is special or meaningful. Fraser & Sarah chose Moke Lake as they often camp there but rather than just come for the photoshoot, they made a weekend of it, setting up camp for the night! They also managed to score the BEST tent spot overlooking the lake - what a view to wake up to!!
Fraser and Sarah were superstars in front of my camera, right from the beginning. You won't find a photo where these two aren't smiling or laughing! I'm sure they felt a little awkward to begin with (you're in the minority if you don't!) but they laughed their way through it and quickly relaxed into our casual, conversational style of photographing.
The first time I met these two I knew immediately that we'd be fast friends, and I wasn't mistaken - during most of this engagement session Sarah and I chatted about wedding plans, life, renovations/building, while Fraser and Matt hit it off instantly (they're both mechanics so there were a few work stories swapped!) and we ended up spending all evening, long after the session finished, just hanging out getting to know these beautiful people.
Fraser proposed to Sarah in March this year at Arrowtown. They camped at Moke Lake that weekend too!
This place is so tranquil. We will definitely be coming back here for our own camping adventures on a weekend off this summer!
A big thank you to Fraser and Sarah for such an enjoyable adventure to Moke Lake for your engagement session! We had a blast! And we cannot wait for your 2021 wedding day to arrive - if your engagement session is anything to go by great things are in store for the wedding! xx
