Emma & James | Sunset Oriental Bay Engagement Photography | Wellington Waterfront

I still canโ€™t believe we swindled this beautiful Wellington weather; itโ€™s so ethereal, one minute it exists, the next people are texting each other trying to find out where it went.

Iโ€™m a big believer in letting the couple gauge the weather on the day of their engagement photos and decide what to do, since itโ€™s really their last chance to choose the weather before they get married, and it so paid off here. Emma and James must have had some insider trading knowledge because although it was a windy cloudy day in the city, by the time we got to the waterfront at sunset it was like paradise.

    Mary. These are really, really great. My absolute fave is the shot where they are looking acroos the water on the park bench. I’m really loving the tone and feel in every shot though.
