Anna & Tony 🥳


An epic drive down to Wanaka to join these two. Sal & I woke up feeling pumped and ready to go. We arrived at 10 am to find out the helicopter had been moved forward to lunchtime to beat the impending weather. With a first look still to go and to get the girls ready to go, we hopped straight into it. Sal ducked off to the boys and I was with the girls. After some champagne, banter, and first looks with Anna's mum & dad. Tony's mum arrived and we did an impromptu first look with Helen too. The boys arrived at Glendhu, we whisked Tony into the shade and brought Anna over. Almost had some tears before the helicopter arrived to whisk us up to Roys's peak/Coromandel Peak. The helicopter ride was insane. Amazing views and my first trip up, absolutely loved it. We had perfect flying weather but it was overcast at the top. So we didn't have the amazing blue lake, but we had perfect skin tones! With only a 15min shoot up the hills before heading back down. We snapped some beautiful shots before Tony's mouth was getting a bit dry and needed more beer ;). Back down we went before heading off with the whole team to drive around Glendhu Station. After we finished our photos we headed back to the ford we had just crossed. Will, Anna's brother was being egged on by Tony. He starts hurtling towards the ford at speed. I quickly grab my camera, flick it to video mode and capture what was about to unfold. I quickly tell sal to get ready to snap some photos. As the water flys over the windscreen, absolutely drenching everyone on board. We all scream and the boys crack up laughing. Will realizes what he has just done with the ceremony due to start in 30mins. He bolts out of the truck and helps Anna who is mortified by this stage. Grabs his half-wet jacket and starts dabbing her down to attempt to dry her off. The boys have lost it, dying of laughter while I am cracking up laughing and drying off my gear, and Sal and I are dripping with water. Anna luckily finds the funny side and jumps back in the car and somehow still looks perfect. Off we all went back to the ceremony area. Anna jumps out and runs into the house to try dry off + fix up her hair. The boys and Sal & I head up to the ceremony. The rest of the day went without a hitch. So much laughter and such a good time. The dance floor was amazing, the speeches had everyone laughing. Then just before we went home, we all get a text to say we are going into level 2. Talk about good timing! Candid photos are definitely my specialty. I love capturing emotion when nobody's watching. Along with making sure we capture all your friends and family who have attended with wee group photos. Enjoy the photos <3
