In one of those amazing strokes of good luck, when Ashlyn contacted me in December to ask if I was available for a January wedding, I was - and I'm so glad! Being present to witness Ashlyn and Mike's wedding day was a true blessing.
The happy couple were married on Mike's parent's property in Paeroa, the same spot his parents were married years before. Set against an awe-inspiring backdrop of rolling hills and long grassed paddocks as far as the eye could see, it was truly a treat for us and our lenses. Throw in a couple of classic cars and some gorgeous photo opportunities around the property, we were spoiled rotten!
I think the best part of photographing Ashlyn and Mike's big day was all the different emotions outpoured by themselves and their guests. From the heartfelt vows (which got me a bit choked up admittedly) to the absolutely hilarious speeches from their group of delightful, colourful friends and family.
It's clear to me that Ashlyn and Mike have something very special, something you don't witness every day. Everlasting love. I constantly have to pinch myself - I can't believe I get to meet such awesome people and bear witness to such special moments for a living!
