Christelle & Gino met each other at culinary school in the Philippines 8 years ago. They have been together ever since and moved to Queenstown, New Zealand together 5 years ago. Their wedding is planned for December back in the Philippines and they wanted to have some photography done in their home of New Zealand before the big day. So we headed down to the 2 lakes, Lake Wakatipu & Lake Hayes where we got some wonderful moments for them to keep and share with their family. I take my hat off to the girls who endure the cold in such beautiful summery dresses during a photoshoot in the middle winter and Christelle was one of these girls. There was a touch of sun bursting out at times for which I was greatful because an Otago winter is not exactly tropical and any bit of warmth helps. There was no shortage of smiles from these two and Gino had a great knack for making Christelle beam with laughter which was awesome for me to capture.
