Sam and I met in Wellington when I was at uni. I moved into his flat with one of my best friends at the start of the year and had a crush on him from day one. Like all true love stories, we went out to a party, kissed, and next thing we knew, we were in a relationship. We both love change and seek out challenges. We’ve lived in five countries together, and there’s never been any Sophie’s Choice situation where one of us didn’t want a new adventure. We’re also both very determined — if we decide we want to do something, we’ll make it happen…
We caught the rich and dreamy low light at the last minutes of sundown, on the dark sands of the gorgeous west coast NZ beach. Right before the sun hit the horizon it filtered through sheer romantic bridal wear. Designs which can be a little risqué, yet very luxurious. Created to be versatile, from the bridal boudoir to an aisle on a beach, for sexy women with an adventurous edge.
Brya and Rupert are effortless trendsetters. Michael discovered this beautiful pair upon photographing their friends wedding, of which they were in the bridal party. The minute I saw Brya, I loved her hair.
I’d had the image of what I wanted to create for this photoshoot in my mind for a while, the feature being a girl with very colourful hair. So when I saw Michelle on the train when coming home from work, I had to ask. She was the perfect model for my imagined photoshoot, with her bright pink hair. I put my shyness aside and went to talk to her.
