Jessica + David // Hamilton Gardens Engagement Session

These two will be married on Saturday and I cannot wait! A storm was forecast was our engagement session in Hamilton Gardens, but it never did join us and instead we had blue skies and some really beautiful light. I could photograph this couple forever, and would easily have spent longer in the greenhouse despite the fact we had only a few moments until another bride was due to arrive! We got so many gorgeous portraits all the same, and the light rain that did arrive led to some romantic portraits under the large trees for shelter...

Michelle + Robert // ENGAGED

I just LOVE this couple! Not only are they both super sweet, but we have so much in common! Michelle is a designer with an incredible eye for detail, and I'm dying to see more of her 'touches' on the wedding day. I was so honoured to be invited along with them to visit their venue last weekend, as they know I am still rather new to the Auckland area and had yet to see their gorgeous venue first-hand! I'm bursting with excitement, as I'm sure they are too!!

Here are a few frames from our engagement session together in Cornwall Park...

Michael + Sarah // ENGAGED

This animal lover bride-to-be could not go past a zoo-themed engagement session, one that included an 'encounter' with a very cute little Madagascan animal! The zoo seemed a perfect fit for this fun couple, for they will be married at Orana Wildlife Park in Christchurch (Sarah's hometown) and it seems only fitting that their session be held in Michael's hometown at Wellington Zoo. After a hot and fun-filled day, we finished our session at Raumati Beach near Michael's family home. What a perfect end to a gorgeous Christmas Eve with a very sweet couple! x
