Kendal & Alan {Engaged}

At a party somewhat 7 years ago… Alan sussed out his future wife. Kendal had a boyfriend so nothing happened. But then they met again.. and again. And this time… Kendal was free as a bird. So guess what? .. Soon Kendal will become Alan’s wife! They’re pretty excited it for it!!

I asked Alan what struck him most about Kendal at first meeting? And I loved his pure Kiwi (possibly Australian?) response “She was the tidiest bird there”. But then went onto say, that he just couldn’t believe how nice she was. I could tell just from Kendal’s emails that when I did finally meet her… she’d be a truly sweet person. Alan and Kendal have been lapping up the heat on the Gold Coast for the past few years… so now that they are back in chilly NZ (speaking on behalf of Christchurch currently) the engagement shoot was the first time meeting them. And whatta ya know?… Not only is Kendal  sweet,  nice and super lovely… but so is Alan! … Well they go just perfectly together don’t they!? :)
