You’ve heard it from us before but we’ll say it again… Multi-day adventure shoots are just so amaze-balls!
And guys – Day one of Irene and John’s cloudy Queenstown prewedding photoshoot was indeed no exception!
There’s something very special about having the time to get to know each other properly. It’s heart-wrenching when it comes time to say goodbye, but then again, we all know it won’t be forever. Just until the next time we are in the neighborhood or vise verse <3
Exploring together for more than one day also gives us the time to be creative and to plan with our couples, giving them a unique experience, something bespoke to just the two of them and some next level photographs to boot! On this particular day we got started super early for a deep pink sunrise photo shoot in Queenstown. It was super chilly but soooo worth it!
As we were kicking off with some of the best light of the day, we arranged to arrive a little early to get in the groove and to just sit and watch as the morning light began to illuminate the valley below. It was a gorgeous morning, but as the old saying goes “red in the morning… shepherds warning”! We wrapped up our dawn shoot around 8 am and headed back to our Airbnb for some breakfast and a quick nap and by the time we reconvened the weather gods had pulled a fast one on us – it was raining cats and dogs! Luckily, in New Zealand, it’s a rare thing to have rain in all places at all times and with a little local knowledge, we managed to dodge the rain and find some incredible new spots to explore, even taking their 4×4 up a proper offroad track to stay warm and dry while we trailblazed.
Because of the weather, we wound up finding some amazing new places, had some incredible moody skies as backdrops and heaps of wind to stir up Irene’s hair and stunning gowns –
We finished up day one of Irene and John’s Cloudy Queenstown prewedding photoshoot up another stunning mountain road, dancing amongst the clouds with our newest fully fledged friends! Watching as the sunset on our day of road tripping and adventure that had started a lifetime ago before the sun had come up just across the valley. Day two (another massive adventure to Mt Cook National Park) stood in wait… Stay tuned <3
