Charlotte and Jonathan // New Zealand Wedding Photographer

Waterfalls, Deserted Beaches, Sunsets, Cuddles and Doggos! Whats not to love...

Charlotte and Jonathan ventured out to Piha one sunny afternoon mid winter to reveal in Piha's own Kite Kite Falls. It was a busy Saturday, the tracks were swarmed by visiting tourists and the paths muddied by the previous days/months rainfall, churned up by the visitors tramping boots and walking sticks. Amongst the hustle of trampers, campers and swimmers these two looking like something out of a fairy tale book, turned heads as they dodged mud puddles and broken trees and climbed barefoot along slippery rocks. 

Totally smitten and out for an adventure these guys spent the afternoon wrapped in each others cuddles. They even brought along their beautiful fur baby, Winnie who supplied all the LOLs as she decided to dig holes around all our feet instead of participating in the game of fetch. A perfect way to end this adorable little E-sesh! 

And if you think this is good, just wait till you see the wedding!

Kimberley and Matt // Piha Wedding Photographer

Im not sure what I did to deserve these guys; Not only are they absolute BABES but they are legit some of the sweetest humans in ze world! (i swear I say this about all my couples, but Its true and I stand by it) ;)

Me and Kim have reached actual bffl status just by Instagram messaging the heck outta each other non-stop for the last year. Dog memes and all I've shared so many lols with this gal before we even met and so By the time they met me outside my driveway for their engagement shoot I felt like I had known them for years. Kim's sense of humour and mine are honest to heck on the exact same level, so we were already in stiches by the time we walked down to the rocks and Matt the trouper saved us both on multiple occasions from tripping over our own feet (Clumsy Girl Life am-i-right Kim?!). Its such a special thing to witness but you can tell by the way Matt simply looks at Kim that this boy is absolutely smitten with his wifey to be and I honestly feel like both of them have hit the absolute Jackpot finding someone who ADORES them so much. 

I cannot wait to explore Queenstown Mountains with them REALLY. FREAK'N. SOON. And watch these guys start their journey together in one of NZ's most EPIC locations. Lets do this team!

Simone and Alex: Piha Engagement Photographer

Late one afternoon Simone and Alex ventured out to meet me in my new hometown of Piha. I have just recently taken up residence in the beautiful, quiet and moody af coastal town and have been dying to bring some couples out to show them all the little spots I have found in my wanderings over the past 2 months. The skies where angry and heavy with rain and the sand flattened by the roaring winds. We sat in the car waiting for the torrential rain to pass over before heading out. At this point, maybe others less brave would've decided to call it a day and reschedule. But not these guys! Once it passed we packed up our things and headed out. The thing about cold days is that it means you have to cuddle for your life, which results in some beautifully moody, emotive and downright adorable pics. During the rain spells we hid out in caves that North End is so generous in providing which resulted in some even more spectacular and (thanks to Simone's Epic Style) Fashionable as heck pics. 

In true Amy Kate Photoshoot Weather Luck, the sun decided to come out and grace us with its presence - At this point Im starting to wonder if I should put "Can control the Weather" in my about me, because honestly, its just getting ridiculous how lucky I am getting with this weather stuff. *results may vary* 

More than all that, these two where just so wonderful to hang out with and I cannot WAIT to be part of their wedding day next April!
