Lydia and I have been best friends for almost 20 years now so shooting her and Richards engagement pictures went without saying! On a personal level I am SO happy my bestie has found this wonderful man to spend the rest of her life with. I’ll be standing beside her on the wedding day but it was so much fun getting to boss them around for the day and get some stunning pictures.

We road tripped down to Palmy from Auckland, so I thought why not make the most of the killer scenery along the way! We started at Lake Taupo- this wasn’t actually planned but as soon as I saw that incredible yellow tree I knew we had to stop for a few shots. We then carried on down the Desert Road and of course had a snow fight, then topped it off with some elegant portraits. See if you can spot the moment Richard gets told off for throwing snow! Hint it wasn’t during the snow fight 😉

I’m always keen to get out of Auckland and explore new locations so if you’re looking for something different for your engagement photos get in touch! Enjoy x
