A year or so before I received a phone call from Paul (asking if I was available and willing to photograph his and Janique’s wedding) I had the pleasure of meeting Paul when he was a groomsmen at Rob and Hannah’s wedding. We got on brilliantly and in the back of my mind I always thought that if this guy gets married that I would love to be the photographer. Well I was fortunate enough that Paul too was on that same wave length and fortunately I was available on their wedding date and well the rest is history.
My father in law lives in Rotorua and so there have been many visits to the Bay of Plenty but I had never ventured to Lake Tarawera. Because I was unfamiliar with this location I paid a visit a few days out from the wedding so I knew exactly what I was working with and where I wanted to take some photos. Even with my photography plan in mind I have learned over the years that you need to be really flexible and really at the end of the day you are guided by your clients and the available light that dictates where you place your clients.
Anyway needless to say it was an amazing day with beautiful people, fantastic weather, an amazing location and a very special day in deed. I was very privileged to be a part of your day Paul and Janique. Thank you 🙂
