We are very blessed to live in Auckland as we are spoilt for choice with locations like this one! Bethells beach is a beauitful rugged black sand beach on the Wild West Coast of Auckland. It makes you feel exquisitely isolated and disconnected from the hustle and bustle of the city, but is literally less than hour drive away! And when you combine this with a beauiful couple like Keri and Opal, who are set on braving any weather for this shoot - it makes for beautiful pictures, showcasing their love for each other.
When I first met Keri and Opal I knew right away they were going to make my job easy. I instantly felt their positive energy and chemistry and you could just tell they are all-round kind and genuine people. During the shoot Keri - took awhile to get comfortable in front of the camera as he was trying to staunch out the camera haha. It is usually my responsibilty as a photographer to make the couple feel at ease but in all honestly it was all Opal. Her beautiful energy and quiet confidence eased and reassured Keri, which made for effortlessly beautiful pictures. I am very happy that you have found love in one another... and I'm beyond excited and grateful that you have entrusted me with capturing your upcoming big day!!
