Charlotte and Jonothan // Matakana Wedding Photographer

I always love going back to my home town to shoot weddings. I feel so at peace and comfortable surrounded by the beautiful beaches, countryside and native bush. There isn't many places that you can go to that have everything you could ever want within a 10 minute drive, but Matakana is one of them and I'm always so proud to call it my hometown. 

I didn't realise Matakana could be even more magical than it already was, that was until, Charlotte and Jonothan rolled up with their family and friends to celebrate the best day of their lives! There are few people who suit a last name quite as well as these two. I mean when you hear Mr and Mrs Rainbow; You imagine two of the sweetest, lovelies, smiliest and kind hearted people in the world, and its pretty spot on with these two! Every time I go through these images I'm whacked with such immense joy and love in my heart! I had the BEST day with them and would honestly relive this day a thousand times over if I could. 

The most magic pair, in the most magical of places... And Oh! Did I mention? We crashed a Gypsy Fair at sunset.

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!
