Bonjour!

Can you believe it?! We are in PARIS!! And we are having such an incredible time! Exploring, eating, drinking, walking, eating and photographing just like good ol’ tourists! Sshhh don’t tell Alex I said the word tourist… haha he is very conscious of looking like one. I, on the other hand totally don’t care and pull the peace sign for almost every photo. geek. The above photos were taken in the beautiful sunset looking over the River Seine. What a sight! Shortly after we grabbed a bottle of wine and sat by a water fountain in the Jardin des Tuileries. I think its going to be hard to leave this place!

I guess we should take the time now to say thank you for your patience if you have emailed us and we have taken a little longer to reply. The computer seems to be bit lonely lately as we soak up the sights!

Au revoir! C&A xx

Erin and Oscar’s stunning Dairy Flat garden picnic wedding!

Erin and Oscar are TOO CUTE! Coralee went to primary school with Erin and when she emailled us asking to be a part of her big day we were pumped! The wedding took place at a beautiful house in Dairy Flat. As Coralee photographed the girls getting ready in Papatoetoe I made the drive out to Dairy flat to catch up with the guys. Just before I got to the house I passed the most amazing red barn and rolls of hay on the roadside. Out of the window went all of our other location plans and I knocked on the door of the house. The old lady was super kind and it turns out I’m not the first photographer to randomly drop by to ask if we can use her shed. She didn’t understand what all the fuss what about…”It’s just an old rusty barn” she told me, genuinely bewildered as to why we’d want to use it. The wedding was incredible. Every little detail was perfectly fitting to Erin, Oscar and their day. Following the ceremony (check out that view!), the guests mingled on the lawn on picnic rugs and ate delicious treats from some great old picnic baskets that had been collected specifically for the day. As we took of for a quick photo session with the bridal party at our sweet shed find, the guests all made their way to Waipuna Lodge where Erin, Oscar and their bridal party rejoined them shortly. Erin, Oscar…we are SO SO happy that we could be there to celebrate with you both and photograph you on your special day. You both looked incredible! Seriously! This blog post is coming at you from Berlin, where we’re currently exploring…but we just had a bit of a moment reliving all the awesomeness of the day as we made this post! Yay! Enjoy! Alex (and Coralee)
