Nathan + Charlotte

So here is the story: Nathan Rodgers is Australian & Charlotte Heremaia is a New Zealander. Nathan got in touch a few months ago about his ideas for the engagement and so it all started. They had been living in Australia for the passed year but came back to NZ for a few days for Nathan to ask Charlottes Dad permission, then to ask Charlotte for her hand in marriage.  I wasn't able to be at the actual engagement so my friend Raniera Paniora-Hepi stood in on the night. He did an awesome job - you can see a few of his images below. Nathan asked on Auckland's waterfront after a treasure hunt style evening and dinner with friends.

I got to take the couple out the next day through some awesome fields in Mangere. They lay in grass, got wet and laughed a lot through it all even though it was a very hot day in Auckland. Im stoked with the result and so happy for Nathan & Charlotte. 

I'm a small town New Zealand boy who grew up on a farm with a Dad who showed me life through a lens. He had a Pentax Film Camera that captured my eye and I've loved photography ever since.
