Jacinta & Simon {Engaged}

I do love a fun, funny, giggly, loveable couple who take life with a grain of salt. And Jacinta and Simon are just that!
When we met earlier this year, I walked away from the meeting with my fingers crossed tight that they’d pick us to be their photographer. And YAY! … This coming March, we have the honour of capturing this amazing couple on the biggest day of their lives to date.

We rolled around the Botanics and Central Christchurch, smiling, laughing and chit chatting like old friends. It was the most fun!

One very cold New Years down in Wanaka… Simon had a plan. He’d already had the seal of approval from the Father in Law to be (Archy sticks in hand n all when asking… eek).
Jacinta and Simon took a stroll after dinner one night in the bitter cold air (it had snowed just the day before in the region).
Simon had a Jersey but Jacinta didn’t.
“How rude” Jacinta thought as Simon held on tight to his Jersey. His Jersey that held something quuuuite important.
When he got to the destination of choice, the view over Lake Wanaka… he wrapped the Jersey around Jacinta and suggested she might need to warm up her hands too… And right there… where she expected nothing… there was something. Something very beautiful that followed with a very important question.

The muriels in Christchurch are running rampant at the moment. There is some super cool art work going up!
