1980 classic mini engagement shoot

10 minutes with Caitlin & Brent {Engaged}

I LOVE what I do. I LOVE it with passion and flare. I LOVE it with a sparkle in my eye and a fire in my belly. Even on a bad day. A bad day looks like gold when you’re LOVING what you’re doing. I LOVE the challenges thrown my way. And I LOVE the people who ‘don’t like their photo being taken’ and I LOVE what we can achieve.. even if only given 10 minutes.

Caitlin is the little sister to one of my closest friends. You’ve met her —> here <— before. I’ve known Caitlin, what seems forever now. So when she came to me for her wedding day photography, there was NO hesitation in saying HECK YEAH!

Caitlin doesn’t have a serious bone in her body! She’s full of life and laughter that comes straight from the gut. She’s genuine too. A few years ago she went across the ditch and got herself a true to the bone, down to earth Aussie bloke and brought him back to New Zealand. An April Fools Day engagement was no joke that Brent has found the girl that will entertain him for life! Because life around Caitlin McMurtrie is anything but boring! And I say that with love! :)

I like to think of myself as an opportunist. See an opportunity and take it!
Brent and Cait aren’t huge on photos. And I didn’t have a lot of time with my recent visit north in visiting her sister. So what they thought was a quick couple of pics with their 1980 classic mini. Turned into the quickest engagement session I’ve ever had. I’m cheeky when need be, but dangggg, just look at the laughter between the two in just 10 minutes… and on a lunch break no less. If only I had a wholeeeee hour!
