Juliet & Henry {Engaged}

Welcome to the iconic countryside of the South Island on a beautiful Sunday morning in Spring. Yip, it was definitely worth rolling out of bed for!

When you walk into a paddock of sheep. Normally they run, actually they ALWAYS run… This little lamby didn’t quite get the memo … then suddenly “Hey, wait for me guys!”… and off he toddled. But we’re not here for the sheep!.. We are here for Juliet and Henry’s engagement.

For me… this was a warm morning. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, the breeze had a slight chill, but nothing to blink over. But then again, I’ve been living here a while. Juliet and Henry are briefly here from Perth where they have been living this last year. Feeling a little nippy, I’d say they’ve become accustomed to the delicious Aussie temperatures that we only grumble over in jealousy.

Henry just started a new job in the Mines in Perth. So not long after our shoot he was jumping on a plane back to Perth while Juliet has stuck around to see out some more Wedding details. I have a feeling he thought he was going to be getting out of the photos. Are we really that scary?!

I think I found a bit of Henry’s cheeky side coming out!

We came out to Juliet’s Uncle’s farm in Darfield. A place that holds a lot of memories for her, a place she grew up on playing lawn cricket with her brothers. And just enjoying the immaculateness of the farm. It must have felt like a Kingdom to her as a young one. Because I agree, it is a gorgeoussss property!
