West Auckland Beach - Karekare Falls engagement | pre-wedding session {New Zealand weddings photographers} Kimberly and Mark

Beautiful time with amazing people - Kimberly & Mark on their pre-wedding | engagement photo shoot on Karekare Beach with Falls, one of the most gorgeous and secluded West Auckland, New Zealand beaches. Its such a pleasure for me as wedding photographer capture so unique for couple moments on this breathtaking engagement session location.

Interesting fact - Kimberly made her way from Oklahoma {USA} to New Zealand to meet the love of her life Mark. I'm so excited about couples upcoming wedding in the USA in September!

Kimberly shared couple's love story: "Mark was the first person I had ever met that I immediately felt that I could be all of me in front of. We were best friends the day we met, I can talk to him about anything. When people say you know when you know, that is literally how i felt. We encourage each other to grow and are stronger together. My father laughs because I had to travel across the world to find "The One" but sometimes that's what love takes, I absolutely adore him and believe there was some other higher power or energy that brought us together and I couldn't be more thankful!"

Proposal story just amazing: "First of all Mark asked my Father for my hand in marriage (he is super traditional) and Mark knew it meant a lot to me. So he had asked my dad several days before he asked me. So my dad kept asking my mom, Has she said anything? (which I knew nothing of until after). Mark and I went to a nice dinner and then were walking along the riverside in Oklahoma, I was wanting coffee and he was trying to take me to the perfect spot but me being myself dragged him to get coffee first. Finally we were walking along the river and he turned to me and made me stop walking and said, I knew you were going to be the one I married from the first time I met you, and I know that is crazy but its true. He tells me I mean the world to him and he wants me to be his wife, So he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was crying and shaking and beyond excited! We went home and told my mom and dad soon after and were going to wait to announce it to the social media world, but my dad was way to excited and kinda announced it for us. which in the end was perfect." This so hear warming story about beautiful souls!
