Wow, these guys are absolute legends. They came all the way from the U.K. and while travelling around Australia and New Zealand, they absolutely fell in love with this place and decided to make a home here. Oli even decided to propose to Danni in Wanaka (an hour drive from where we had this shoot), after a 6 hour hike to get to a lookout called Roy’s Peak.
Spending time with these guys was a tonne of fun. We shared all our adventure stories and talked about what our favourite thing was about New Zealand and where our ideal wedding would take place and how we’d want it to be. Theirs was on top of a ski field, and then they’d snowboard down the mountain together after saying their vows. Sign me up!!
This location was actually mean to be covered with snow, as I scouted it the day before, but apparently, it’s the part of the mountain that can be unpredictable when it comes to snow. I wasn’t complaining though, it’s been my dream to photograph on top of a mountain in New Zealand and there we were, running around and having a ball.
