Good times. Parliament Engagement Session.

Good times were definitely had at this little engagement session. Lot's of laughter from these two, and I can't wait for their wedding at The Landing (stunning Wairarapa wedding venue) next month!
I have to admit, parliament and the parliamentary library in Wellington (NZ) have a bit of a bad rep as far as photo locations go. Some would consider them traditional, even over-done, think I've even heard the adjective boring used on more than one occasion... But I thought it was awesome, especially being Wellington Anniversary weekend, there were only a couple of tourists wandering around in the yummy evening light (and wind!). And there was this super cute little manicured garden at the back of the library... and it was sunny, so got the usual lens-flare and free-lensing fix! Good times.

Wainuiomata coast road. Rugged goodness.

Completely flattered to be asked by these two inspiring photographers to photograph them!
We went on a teeny road trip from Wellington to the South Coast Road of Wainuiomata. Our first stop, (yes there is more to come...!) a stunning yet rugged spot typical of New Zealand. Along the way we talked way too much about photography, weddings, tech stuff and favourite trees to photograph under...  But best of all was the opportunity to play and create. Awesome. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks James and Michelle!
