Jane & Athol {Married}

We jumped in the car, coffee in the belly and headed 2 and half hours south to Jane’s family farm in the MacKenzie Country! The day was hot, hot, hot, which worked favorably  for the ceremony being held on the top of a hill on the farm. A little red chopper was the transport for a good portion of the day, which saw most of the dry MacKenzie valleys and beautiful Lake Tekapo from the air. Witnessing Athol taking deep breaths, prepping himself for Jane’s arrival was endearing and not to mention the way they laughed with each other alllll day long. Gah, so so gooood!!
I sound like a broken record sometimes as I state over and over and over again how awesome it is being a wedding photographer…. but seriously… it’s soooo awesome! Because we get to witness time and time again the most special relationships and all the joy that is knitted and weaved into it. Jane and Athol have a beautiful friendship together, cheeky senses of humour and gorgeous thoughtful hearts! It was fun, hilarious and down right amazing capturing their wedding day!! … Here it is!!

Us humans are so teeny tiny in the scheme of things! We can see the ceremony site so teeny tiny on the top of the hill in the valley! Jane doesn’t need a car to get to the wedding when she has a cute wee red chopper to escort her, courtesy of friends!

Walking is way too boring… piggy backs through the long grass is far more practical! ;-)
