I first met Travis and Rose at Travis’ brother’s wedding, almost four years ago when I was just starting out as a wedding photographer. It was really awesome to catch up with Justin and Sam, the bride and groom from that wedding, and an honour to photograph Travis and Rose’s wedding. The location was absolutely stunning – a beautiful beachfront resort in the Hokianga in Northland, golden sand, a grand tree to wed under, and endless beautiful sunshine. The perfect location for summer people.
With an unsettled spring we had already needed to postpone the engagement session once, and the weather was supposed to be a bit unsettled this day. The weather was a bit wild and windy but we just went with it and didn’t let it dampen anyone’s spirits and got some lovely West Coast type shots on an East Coast beach.
So after a lot of wedding shows and preparing myself for life as a full time professional, it was time to get back to the core of what I do. This is a teaser of just the start of the day and my first wedding of this season. I am very excited to see what other gems I uncover as I edit the images. I almost forgot – my oh my, that dress was amazing!
