Don't forget these special items to be photographed first thing on your big day!

Ok, I know its been over a YEAR since I went to New Zealand on The Great Photo Escape, but in the downtown of the winter, I’m finally getting around to blogging more images! This particular set is one of my favorites.  Its from one of our last days on the trip, and the sunset on Lake Wakatipu was to die for! I mean just look at that light! And those mountains!  I had the pleasure of getting to photograph a few lovely ladies right outside of our AirBNB.  What a fun evening!

I’m so honored to have been able to travel with such wonderful souls. I’ll never forget the beautiful mountain ranges, gorgeous sunsets, and amazing beaches that we saw during our travels but the people are what really made this trip an adventure! <3

First up, Lauren of Lauren R Swann Photography

She is KILLIN IT in that dress!!

Oh and I got a quick turn in front of the camera too – oh boy! lol. Thanks to Erica Kay Photography for snapping these on my camera!

Renee (Renee Hollingshead Photography) looked like such a mermaid babe!! Can’t believe this sweet thing is now a mama! Congrats, lady! 🙂

Back to Lauren being so incredibly photogenic!!!

On the right we have Brianna, of Brianna Wilbur Photography.  I probably took a bajillion photos of her because she absolutely slayed the modeling game and that light was absolute perfection!

Oh, and she’s a mama now too; to the cutest little ginger girl! Congrats, Bri!
