Courtney & Matt {Engaged}

Meet Courtney, born and bred in Christchurch. Meet Matt, born and bred in Hamilton. They are newly engaged and down from the big lights of Auckland where they are living, to come celebrate their engagement with Courtney’s Christchurch life.
The wedding is in the North Island, so the engagement is in the South Island. That’s where I step in. We hit the beauty Christchurch has to offer. Starting with… Hagley Park and The Botanical Gardens.

A little camera shy at first, they soon got into their groove.

Beautiful Courtney.

I love the multitude and variety of trees NZ has to offer. I took this for granted for a long time. I like this big guy below. I reckon he’s seen and heard a lot of love stories at his roots.

Up to the Port Hills. That nice little bit of road where it’s 10 steps either side to a gorgeous view. Christchurch and The Alps on one and The Banks Peninsula on the other.
