The main reason for our first trip back to New Zealand earlier this year was to be part of Katie & Hoani’s wedding. Katie is my cousin, and very VERY dear to my heart! I’ve looked up to her since always, and she continues to inspire me. Kim had the honour of photographing their day, and I also had the privilege of being a bridesmaid (and occasionally helping Kim out when not doing bridesmaid type activities). He did an amazing job and we are looking forward to sharing those images soon in another post.
A few days before their wedding, we arranged to meet up with Katie & Hoani and take some Wellington Engagement Photos. That way they could just relax on the wedding day, knowing they could be comfortable in front of the camera! We headed out to the river behind my parent’s house to find some beautiful light. I was meeting Hoani for the first time, and his love for Katie was evident from every gentle touch and private whispered joke that could send her into streams of laughter. It was so great to be able to capture that.
We love these two lots!
