Jakalah greeted me with a hug as soon as she opened the door; and the whole bridal party made me feel more like a friend. A couple days before the wedding a large storm system passed through, I think we all thought that we were in for some rough weather on the day but nature had a different plan in mind.
These two lovely people are the perfect mix of love, laughs and energy! Its so hard not to get along with them and their infectious nature as a couple. On my recent trip back home to Christchurch for a wedding we planned to meet up for engagement photos. While not my usual style of photography, we had become set on indoor locations - thankfully because the weather did not play ball.
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.
