I really love it when I meet couples who aren't afraid to just be themselves and are excited to get stuck in with their engagement photoshoots. Of course for most people they are a little nerve wracking at first - especially if you have never had one before, but nerves quickly turn to laughter after I bring out my super lame jokes.
Winter weddings are definitely one of my favourites; layers, warmth, richness of colours and there is always a bigger sense of intimacy.
Ben and Genayas details were so well planned out, right from the rustic woolshed, through the the vintage fur wraps, the red, red roses and lets not forget the beautiful decorations. You may have seen the blog post (from May this year), the engagement session I photographed for Ben and Genaya in my home city Christchurch. Carrying on from this story, on a cool day in July these two said their "I Do's". I think everyone had hopes for snow (including myself!), it looked promising when a few days before the wedding some snow storms passed through, however it had melted before the day.
