I am so so happy and in love with this shoot! My good friends who live in Dunedin are getting married next year, so I had a quick engagement photo shoot with them at St Clair beach. These old pier piles at St Clair have got to be one of the most photographed places in the country, but you can see why! 

I didn't make them pose too much as I wanted them to just act natural, and it was FREEZING and windy and trying to pose them would have taken too much time. Plus Max was sleeping in the ergo carrier at the same time, so I wanted to get him out of the wind as quick as I could!  While editing, I decided to tone the photos down a bit and give them a more dreamy feeling, which I think works well with the setting. 

I also love the big mural on the side of the St Clair life saving club's building by Dunedin artist Lindsay Crooks, so got some photos with them in front of it! 

These photos will contrast completely with their tropical Rarotonga wedding next year which I'm sure will be full of bright flowers and lots of warm sun!
