Jackie & Matt

Fantastic time with Jackie and Matt on their engagement session on beautiful Auckland West Coast Beach and Karekare Falls. It is just a gorgeous couple of beautiful souls. It was a real pleasure for me, an Auckland wedding photographer to capture so unique for couple moments on their pre-wedding photo shoot.

Couples love story started on the beach. Jackie shared their sweet memories: "We met through a friend on the beach, we've been together ever since that day! " Proposal was made "In Gum Boots after he was finishing chopping up wood, he said a little speech, got down on one knee and pulled out a ring. " Such a great and romantic story!

Tawharanui Lodge Wedding {Matakana-Auckland weddings photographers} Fiona & Silas

Excited to share with you highlights of a beautiful and emotional wedding - Fiona & Silas in Tawharanui Lodge {near Matakana, Auckland, New Zealand}. It was a great honor for us, Auckland wedding photographers to capture couple's special moments with their friends and families. Especially a pleasure as we already met couple beforehand and got some stunning engagement photos on their pre-wedding photo shoot on Muriwai Beach {West Coast}. Such a great memories!

The couple shared their romantic story: "We were from the same school growing up in Malaysia, so we've known each other since we were 11. Never really talked to each other more until we met each other in Otago, Dunedin where we studied. We went to the same church, served on the team together, through Easter camp we got to know each other a lot better and realized we had endless things to talk about! We've been together for almost five years!" Silas shared a proposal story: "Planned to go to Gold Coast for a fun weekend with friends who were in on the plan. Last night before we left, we were taking photos as a group by the jetty, I had someone take a video while pretending just to take photos. Got on one knee and popped the question!"

It was a great pleasure to feel this unique atmosphere and so beautiful and emotional moments, especially on the wedding ceremony and through the day with the outing to the beach and fun reception.

Karekare Falls engagement photo shoot {West Auckland wedding photographer} Alexandra and James

Alexandra & James

We had a terrific time with Alexandra & James on their pre-wedding engagement photo shoot at Karekare Falls next to the beach {West Auckland, New Zealand}. This couple was just amazing, brave, adventurous, ready to walk and talk under the rain and capture some stunning photographs, such a dream for any wedding photographer! Can't wait till their wedding in December in Matakana! Not long to go now!

The couple shared their love story: "We first met at Chapel Bar on Ponsonby Road on Sunday, 10th November 2013. I saw James from across the room and said: "I am going to marry that guy." When we first met, it was a world wind love affair. We spent ten days together before James flew around the world to work in the Caribbean for three months. I waited for him, and it was the best decision I ever made. He then quit his job and moved back to NZ full-time."

The proposal has been so beautiful and romantic: "It was a Monday. We went for a walk after work, and we were just chatting as normal until James suggested a change in our usual route. He took me down to Herne Bay Wharf which is somewhere very special to him. We walked down and stood to gaze out at the water taking in the beautiful view. After a couple of minutes, I noticed that James was acting a little strange and asked him what was wrong - at that moment he looked at me, and I just knew what was about to happen. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes." It is such a unique story!

A few months later I moved onto the same floor and kept saying hello, eventually she said hello back and the rest is history."

Mangawhai Heads Beach Engagement Session {Auckland NZ wedding photographers} Dahlia and Ibrahim

Dahlia & Ibrahim

We had a fantastic engagement session with Dahlia & Ibrahim on Mangawhai Heads beach just before the sunset. It was my first time traveling to this amazing location, I'm as an Auckland wedding photographer shot weddings and engagements in so many places in New Zealand, but on this beach yet, so it was a great pleasure to explore a new stunning pre-wedding location. 

The couple shared their love story and how was made a proposal:

"We met 7 years ago through my cousin who came to visit me in my architecture studio and I showed him around. We've been friends ever since then but never quite thought the other would be interested in the other. A year and a half ago we started rock climbing together and we started going every week and became in separable in between sessions. So we have a foundation of the best of friendships. ", said Dahlia.

"On one of our first dates we went on a hike in the Waitakere ranges, what started off as a 3 hour hike turned into a 7 hour hike after getting lost. It was cold and the track was muddy and slippery and messy. We ran and climbed and swam in ponds all the way back (boot camp style) because the sun was going down. But it was the funniest, most memorable experience so the Zion hill trek was really special for us and that's where he proposed. Waiting at the top of the mountain for me as my friend and I hiked up and she disappeared behind me as we got to the look out. It was super romantic and beautiful. " The story sounds so special and romantic!

We had fantastic time with couple exploring the seaside, climbing rocks and walking and chatting.
