Stacey and Jason we’re the winners of our “Chase the Sunset” Auckland Engagement Photography comp that we ran with Auckland Weddings a few months back!
We started off the afternoon by heading up the mountain bike tracks in Woodhill Forest. Those of you who are mountain bikers in Auckland will know this name well. Jason is an avid mountain biker so he led us to the epic spots in the forest (we may have got lost once or twice but that was part of the adventure). As we were zigzagging through the forest, the theme of this shoot literally became a reality as the light started dropping quicker than we could walk, so we ran down the mountain to Muriwai Beach to literally “Chase the Sunset”! With minutes to spare Jason & Stacey ran, jumped, skipped, and hopped along the beach. In the end I’m not sure if they were hop, skipping, and jumping for the photos, or simply because it was fun. I’m pretty sure we we’re egging each other on to the latter.
When the “photoshoot”/adventure was over, they invited me back to their home and we shared the most delicious roast chicken for dinner that Stacey thoughtfully prepared in the slow cooker earlier. We followed that with a few beersies to celebrate and in my mind it was the perfect end to a fun afternoon spent with my 2 new friends! Voila!
