Christchurch Urban Engagement Shoot

Karla & Andrew {Engaged}

“There is this really nice girl that works at my school” Andrew’s Mum said to him one day…
Not thinking much of it, and also perhaps not wanting to be set up on a date by his Mother… Andrew forgot about it and a short while later met a nice girl in a club one night. …A nice girl that happens to work at the same school as Andrew’s Mum.
You.are.kidding?!” Were the thoughts that went through Andrews head…
So… even if Mum didn’t officially set them up, them meeting was certainly in the cards and 5 years on, they are preparing for their January 2014 wedding.

They thought an Urban shoot would be right up their alley… Yay! Because the Christchurch Urban is so often changing that it is still exciting when I get to do some urban shoots!

So with the Christchurch Urban changing so often. Buildings are coming down and gap fillers are going in. This is my latest fav that I spotted a few weeks back. The Pallet Pavilion. It kind of serves as a hang out spot. It is pretty awesome! While you can have some drinks here… right on the outside of these pallets, you can BYO a pizza and cook it in the pizza oven that is.. ya know.. just hanging out on the side of the road!!! Christchurch is turning over a new, fresh, funky and  creative leaf and I.AM.LOVING.IT!!!

So just remember to Save the Date! Even if not for their wedding (clearly half of you don’t know them lol) … but maybe save the date to go and get an ice cream that day and think to yourself, that two awesome and amazing people are declaring their love for each other for life that day! I’m sure it’ll put a wee smile on your face! :)

Karla and Andrew! I had a GREAT time! Can’t wait to show you more and I know it’s a year away, but I am SO EXCITED for your wedding!
All the best with the plans! xox
