We’re photographing Kari and Michael’s wedding in the Wairarapa at the beautiful Tarureka Estate in a couple of weeks. Kari (like many people) was a little nervous about having her photo taken, so we did an engagement session with them at the Massey Memorial. Engagement sessions are a great way for us to get to know the bride and groom, and vice versa, and for them to get used what happens on a photo shoot.
The engagement shoot was really fun, for us and for Kari and Michael. Kari’s told me it’ll help her feel much more comfortable on the day, which is fantastic. The main aim of an engagement shoot isn’t the photos, it’s the experience, but for Kari and Michael we managed to get some great images and some fun images too. Here are some of our favorites from their shoot. Look out for the wedding images in a couple of weeks!
