Lucy and Ben – Behind the scenes and the 35mm film frames

Hey, it’s Alex! Surely you’ll remember Lucy and Ben from this lovely little preview post a few days ago…After we shot away from their morning ceremony we spent a bit of time with the bridal party down at Wynyard Quarter. We didn’t have much time so Coralee led the way photographing digitally and I spent the time sneaking in film frames over her shoulder. Haha. I’m sure the bridal party think I’m ridiculous popping up every now and then from behind in the shadows. We had such fun with the wonderful Lucy, Ben ad their bridal party. The digital files always take us a while to get through thousands of them at this time of year…but we were patiently awaiting the arrival of these few films from the Lab. FujiColor PRO400H and Kodak BW400CN and the most incredible looking bride and groom (who at this moment are enjoying their honeymoon in DISNEYLAND!). I always have to say that this is not the official wedding post…There’s plenty more goodness shot on digital being worked on as we speak….but here’s another little peek. Film, grain, blurryness, smiles, and two gorgeous newlyweds :-) Alex.


Meg Amor - Wow! Isn’t that just gorgeous and they look gorgeous and happy. Sometimes I see bridal photos and I wonder how long the marriage will last, just going by the energy in them… but these are fabulous!

Ashliegh Higgans - These are beautiful! I love how “semi untraditional” she is with her dress!

Denise Beaumont - Sometimes longer than EVERYBODY thinks

Kate Robinson - Awesome Alex! I love film. :)

Steph | bubblerock - Nothing beats film! Keeping sneaking them in!!!

Royal Easter Show engagement shoot…Courtney & Cori!

Courtney and Cori are a treat! We were head-down in the midst of our busiest month ever since we’ve taken our photography business full-time, but we simply couldn’t resist another shoot when Courtney emailed us and suggested we do their engagement session at The Royal Easter Show! What a freaking awesome idea! After a coffee or two to fuel up, we hit the show late on Easter Monday when the light was low and (hopefully) the crowds had died down a bit (they hadn’t). An added bonus is that they’d reduced the entry fee to $10 from what used to be a whopping $50…..or something ridiculous like that. These two are hands down some of the cutest, most ridiculously bubbly, friendly, awesome completely head-over-heels-in-love with each other people that we’ve ever met. The kind of people that we meet and then don’t want to say goodbye to at the end of the shoot ’cause we just want to go and hang with them some more. In-between gobbling down candy apples and hot-dogs and candy floss we managed a few laps and photographed the playful couple amongst the carnival rides. As the sun dipped behind the Super Loop we enjoyed way too many Lil’ Orbits donuts before we said farewell. But never fear, in true Courts & Cori style, these two will be having……you guessed it…..a CARNIVAL themed wedding next year. As we strolled around the Easter Show, Courtney excitedly pointed out all of the rides they had booked to be at their wedding! Yup, fun-park rides at a wedding! Can’t wait. Courts, Cori, congratulations on your engagement! Quite possibly the cutest couple….EVER. C&A xx

Steph | bubblerock - I just can’t get enough. Someone had to do it and I am glad it was the two of you. This is by far one of the best engagement shoots I have seen, ever. And certainly the best in the whole of New Zealand, hands down.
You guys are incredible. And those two are just so sweet… Their happiness and love are so infectious.
A-ma-zing!
