alyson & shane | engagement


This is my brother-in-law and soon to be sister-in-law (exciting!). They wanted a few snaps to celebrate their engagement so we set off from the bach in Whangamata on the Coromandel Peninsula to the near deserted Opoutere Beach. You can’t go wrong with a long stretch of pristine white sandy beach backed by pine forest and bush. So simple, so pure NZ, love ♡
