Unique engagement photos take a few components, a couple who will not only trust my vision but also sometimes travel the distance needed to get to a location! In this case it was a long road trip with Becky & Ash to Waioru in the middle of New Zealand’s north island for these shots. I had already imagined the landscape after driving through it to the mountain on countless family trips as a child and shooting a couple here had been a bit of an ambition. You can imagine my excitement when Becky told me they were up for it! The best thing about road trips is the time you get to spend getting to know one another, and the stop in at burger fuel on the way home!
Becky and Ash are both based in Hamilton and got in touch with me about a year ago for their Wedding photography, two very talented, successful young people with a beautiful relationship that was a joy to photograph. I’m fairly excited as tomorrow I’ll be jumping on a plane to fiji to photograph their island wedding and I can’t wait to share the pictures from their Wedding. It will be an amazing contrast to the engagement session – I found it ironic that the below images were shot in temperatures so cold we seriously thought it might snow towards the end of the session! But their Wedding pictures will hopefully be on warm sandy beaches. Thanks so much Bex & Ash for spending a wonderful afternoon and evening with me to capture some unique engagement photos.
