vicky & mark's city engagement shoot

Written by Angela Penn on December 3rd, 2014.      0 comments

Vicky & Mark chose Christchurch's inner city as the backdrop for their engagement shoot a couple of weeks ago and it was a beautiful, beautiful night!  I very rarely go into the City and they showed me loads of new things which were so cool to be able to photograph!

I think it's fair to say they were perhaps a little hesitant about being in front of the camera but by the end of it, they were dancing up a storm to beat of their own drums.  This is why I think it's so important to do a pre-wedding shoot if you get the chance!  We knew each other just that little bit more after it and when it comes to photos on their big day, they will be so much more relaxed.

Wow, what a beautiful day is was on Monday!  Absolutely stunning!  And I got to photograph a stunning couple too. They are SO sweet, and SO cute together and they are so so so in love!!!  I'm buzzing about this shoot and cannot wait until their wedding in January!

Here are a few images from their engagement session.

sarah & matt's victoria park engagement session

Written by Angela Penn on June 25th, 2014.      0 comments

I have known Sarah for a long time now - our families were really close when we were kids, we all used to play netball together (Sarah's family is very talented in the sporting arena - me, not so much).  And my brother used to babysit Sarah and her sister!  So I was super honoured when they asked if they would photograph their wedding.  And or course I said big fat huge YESSSSS!!!

We met up at Victoria Park (well it's kinda behind the main park area - away from the people), so it was nice and private.

After a few 'go stand in that long grass and frolick around' photos, they ignored me and only had eyes for each other. I LOOOOVE this photo so much.

A bit of dancing practice never goes astray...

At the time of writing this blog, Sarah asked if I needed any more info from her and this is what she wrote:
" Matt was on the Fortune 500 List but lost his billions in the 1987 stock market crash, got a face lift, suckered some beautiful, honest, caring, extremely modest maori girl from Christchurch to marry him and the rest is history".  This girl is seriously hilarious. Matt, you are going to be kept laughing for the rest of your life. If not with her, then definitely AT her.
