After only talking with Nick and Kim via email I was excited to properly meet them for an engagement photo shoot on a beautiful Autumn afternoon.
I love these shoots for two reasons… firstly because it’s a fun way to meet a couple, hear their story and get a bit of insight into their upcoming day and secondly, because it gives me a chance to reassure the couple that I’m NOT some crazy photographer that is going to make their wedding day photos painful! The light was beautiful and with plenty of golden leaves everywhere I knew this would be the sort of warm tone shoot I love. We set the scene with some nice depth of field in the park.
For two people that had just met their photographer in the middle of the park, Nick and Kim were super easy to photograph and after we got some shots for a secret part of their wedding day (not showing you those ones, you’ll have to wait!) we carried on to make the most of the magical light.
These two are a wedding photographers dream; they’re easy going, very relaxed and totally in love! I just let them share their own moments and photographed from a distance to get a beautiful series like this one…
Then we shifted spots a little bit as earlier I had spied a tree laden with golden leaves and the sun shining right through it… I knew this would be a winning combo!
We finished off the shoot with these photos as the light faded and fingers were getting numb from the brisk Christchurch air.
Nick and Kim it was fantastic to meet you and you were so natural to photograph! We can’t wait for November to capture your special day!
