Ok, I am FINALLY posting some photographs from New Zealand! There are sooo many to post, so I’ll be splitting them into a few different blog posts in the coming week. After Nicola and Kent’s beautiful wedding at Hunua Falls just south of Auckland, I decided to take an extra week and a half to visit my brother, Grant, who is currently living in Wanaka, New Zealand on the south island. It was an amazing trip that I will never forget and there was no way I could capture the dramatic landscapes down there as amazing as they are in person, but I hope I was close :)

I flew into Queenstown, which is about an hour south of Wanaka, and a few people at the wedding told me I had to catch a rugby match while I was there. So we went straigh to the pitch from the airport!

After a few cold and rainy days in Wanaka, we were finally able to get out of town and head to the West Coast as our first of many day trips. We went with a few of Grant’s local friends who knew of several unknown spots along the way. My Utah friends will appreciate this little hike, what does this remind you of?

The water was extremely cold, and as you will see in other posts as well, my brother finds it necessary to dive in no matter what the temperature is…

This is what I found incredible about New Zealand landscapes, you can find yourself deep in the mountains one minute, then the next, well, see for yourself…

The West Coast is known for their fresh green mussels, so we decided to find out for ourselves…

I just wanted to post a quick update from across the globe in Auckland, New Zealand. Just before I left I photographed the wedding of Ellen and Jamie in Seattle, Washington, and even though I’m way over here, I had to post a little preview :)

While up in Seattle for Ellen and Jamie’s wedding I was able to get in an engagement session with Nikkel and Carl, another one of my couple’s that were in town for the same wedding. It worked out perfect and we decided to head to the Pike Place Market for some fun photos. I always plan for rain when scheduling a shoot in Seattle, but the wind that came with it made it difficult to walk down the sidewalk!

Can’t wait for their wedding in Idaho this summer!
