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.

I don't blog anywhere near enough engagement sessions, and I REALLY need to! Engagement sessions are where I get to know my couples a bit more, and I see how they interact with each other so I can capture exactly who they are. MOST of my clients have never been in front of a camera before so this is a way to help them relax and get to know how I will work with them on their big day. Its also a chance to have a relaxing photoshoot without the pressure of everything else going on around them like a wedding day brings; its normally me, my camera, the couple, and sometimes an extra family member! Plus they are a TON of fun.
