Home family farm engagement photos, Wairarapa


"Home is where the heart is" is a cliché but for Barb and Simon, it rings true.


This bubbly couple booked me for their wedding in November 2020 and had their engagement session the month before. Not everyone enjoys having their photo taken and an engagement photo shoot prior to your wedding really helps couples become more comfortable. With me there aren't any awkward poses. I might ask you to stand in that pool of light and tell me about how you met. I might ask you to steal a kiss. For me, it's often the moments before and after these 'poses' that make the best natural and relaxed photos.


The location for the engagement photos was Simon's parents' property in Masterton, Wairarapa. I love photographing people at home, it's so undeniably personal. Barb loved a dilapidated woolshed in a field next to the house. The garden is charmingly landscaped so there was plenty of variety to explore. Simon's two daughters joined them for half of the session and we captured some beautiful memories.


Barb and Simon ordered a canvas print so they can re-live these memories every day. Barb said:

"Our canvas print arrived today. Simon and I can't stop looking at it we absolutely love our photos. Thanks so much for allowing the girls to be apart of the process. We have gained some amazing images to be treasured for years to come. Our families and friends love them just as much as we do."


Thanks so much for trusting me with your memories and I can't wait to document your wedding!
