Castlepoint engagement photos, Wairarapa Brendon and Arleen


Brendon and Arleen are a super-cute, lovely couple getting married at Peppers Parehua Martinborough next year. We celebrated their engagement with a portrait session at Castlepoint a few months beforehand.


The quaint and popular Castlepoint, Wairarapa has a special place in this couple's heart. Brendon's family has a bach right on the beach. It has stunning views out to sea and of the famous lighthouse. Brendon and Arleen make regular weekend trips up from their Wellington home.


City escapes are enjoyed walking on the beach, up to the lighthouse, and up the headland opposite, mostly with their gorgeous dogs Richer and Reagan. Both excellent, interesting names for dogs which sparked interesting conversation (I'm a Star Trek enthusiast, courtesy of my husband Ben)!


Brendon and Arleen (along with the dogs) showed me their favourite parts of Castlepoint. We started at the carpark near the church and walked through the pine forest to see the headland. Then did some tree climbing and tested out the tree swing (not as easy to get onto as last time!). We walked along the beach to include the lighthouse in some candid portraits. Finally we headed to the bach with it's stunning views over the bay.


I love my couples so much, especially when one half works for Whittaker's and very generously gave me three blocks of chocolate! For the record my favourite was the creamy caramel...). Thank you guys.


One of the ways I help you feel relaxed on your wedding day (and avoid awkwardness!) is by really getting to know you before hand. I love learning about you, your love story and what you do in your daily lives. All my wedding photography packages include an engagement shoot. This session allows you to see how I work and relax having your photo taken. Plus you'll have some gorgeous nature-based portraits to document this unique time in your lives: your engagement. So when I turn up on the morning of your wedding, it feels like a new best friend just arrived.
