Wanaka destination wedding
When Kat & Andrew first asked me if I would photograph their wedding in Wanaka, New Zealand I was so excited. When she sent me links to the incredible Lookout Lodge and let me in on their top secret plans to fly up to the top of the mountain for pictures after the ceremony I had to pinch myself. Such a magnificent setting and dramatic backdrop – seriously a photographers dream!
The week leading to the wedding was nerve-wracking; obsessively checking the weather forecast several times a day and as we got closer, the forecast got worse and worse. Rain rain and more rain and if the weather was bad, the helicopter was off. But we crossed our fingers and stayed hopeful it would clear and by the end of the ceremony our prayers were answered! With the stunning Lake Wanaka nestled amongst the towering mountains, this place was an utterly breathtaking backdrop for the photos. It was an unforgettable and unique wedding and I will always be grateful that I was lucky enough to be a part of it. Thank you guys and congratulations!
