New Zealand beach wedding photography is something I get to do almost every summer, however this particular shoot was very special for a few reasons. I met Tash over a year ago when she first enquired for some family portraits – the rest from here is really history. Sometimes you meet people who are just so open and wonderful that you then go on to practically become part of their family, and that’s exactly what ensued. Both Tash and Mikes family welcomed me with open arms and now I feel like I photograph an event with them every other weekend!
These two got engaged…wait for it – On top of Mt Everest! After Mike being extremely nervous but Tash convinced that he had altitude sickness they finally made it to the top after a gruelling journey. Mike popped the question with the beautiful stone that you see around Tash’s neck which she then had made into a necklace. The beach that they married on is steeped in history for the two of them as they met there as surf lifesavers all those years ago.
I always have such a laugh with these two and I know I will for years to come.
