Leigh & Dave {Engaged}

High School Sweethearts. I love that term. It’s the term of two people who have known each other a long time. Known each other through the awkward teenage years, through years of study, career developments and travels. A lot can happen in 9 years and people can change. Leigh and Dave have tackled all of the above together and the best is still yet to come…

Christchurch Botanical Garden Engagement shootFebruary marks their big day. Living in Auckland, they are coming home to good old Christchurch to get married.

Dave is right into cycling. So after a race in 2010, Leigh got the surprise of her life when Dave dropped to one knee and asked her to be his wife. She was too excited about the question, she didn’t even notice the ring. That last part makes me smile!

I love this big tree. You don’t need to see much of it to know how huge and glorious it is!

They’ve had a good year this year too. 3 months cramming in as much of Europe as they can muster… ahhhhh, its a hard life! :)

Dave’s a little but shy of affection… so I pulled his cheeky side out instead! :)

Even I can’t stare directly into the lens for a good amount of time. I was so impressed and loving the fact that Leigh so comfortably does!

Thanks for such a lovely Sunday stroll around inner city Christchurch Leigh and Dave. Your big day will be here in no time and we so can’t wait to be apart of it!

See you in February! :)
