Pete proposed to Alex in Riverton last duck shooting season. On Friday, just before this year's opening weekend, we met this beautiful duo back in Riverton for a sunset engagement session! This was our first in person meeting since they booked us as Pete & Alex live in Christchurch, but from the moment we stepped out of the car I knew we had made new friends!
I had a wonderful time photographing these two. We laughed our way through the whole session, as we climbed up rocks & adventured along the beach creating these portraits together. Pete & Alex were just so much fun to hang out with! And the late afternoon light we got was absolutely gorgeous. I love the candidness of these portraits and how they showcase both Pete and Alex's fun, beautiful personalities.
Once the sun sets there is a small amount of time where the sky becomes like candy floss with soft hues and a last wee punch of warm glow. It's the time of day that I love the most but it's so fleeting and often the weather conditions or sky just doesn't provide the right conditions for it, but when it does it is PURE MAGIC to photograph...
Pete and Alex - thank you for being so much fun to hang out with and photograph at Riverton last week! We loved getting to know you both a little better and we're excited for your wedding day to arrive! It's going to be a lot of fun if your engagement session is anything to go by.
More photos to come soon, x.
