You may have heard photographers talk about the golden hour and how that’s the best light of the day. Did you know that there is 2 golden hours a day and the first one is at sunrise. One of the great things about winter is sunrise is actually at a sensible hour and the perfect way to start a day. ⠀ How about an intimate elopement, just you and your love saying your vows as the sun rises up over the mountains. You then have the full day to celebrate with your new husband or wife. You could celebrate with a day of adventure or lounging around enjoying epic food and drink or why not both, cause you have the full day. ⠀ Would you consider eloping at sunrise?
Today I said goodbye to two of my favourite people ever 😭 and they had to say goodbye to Queenstown 😭 I am not good with goodbyes, I get awkward and I walk away and then I ball my eyes out 😭😭 But I am trying not to see this as a negative, yes 2 people I consider part of my family are moving away but it’s only to the North Island. We will have lots of wine fuelled phone calls, I will spend all my air points going to Wellington as much as possible and they will be back for Christmas and I am so so happy for the new adventures they will go on and the awesome experiences Wellington will give them, and they’ll be back (you better come back) 😄❤️❤️❤️❤️
Let’s talk tacos 🌮 I seriously love tacos, the only thing I love more than a taco night is Mac n cheese (yep obsessed with mac n cheese). Phil and Holly also love tacos and even included a taco hour at their wedding, how awesome is that!?! ⠀ Tonight in Queenstown is the grand opening of Taco Medic’s new location and I will definitely be there to fill my face full of tacos. Would you have tacos at yours wedding?
2020 has taught me a lot of patience. Even before Covid it was teaching me to roll with the punches. We have had strong ash clouds from the Australian forest fires postpone shoots, crazy winds kept helicopters from flying and then good ol’ Aunty Rona showed up and told us to go stand in the corner for what seemed like forever! ⠀ It might be awhile before we return to normal and who knows the next time I will be on an international flight but I know we will get through it. Have a plan b and c and heck maybe even a plan d. Be kind, if anything these time’s have taught us, it’s to stop being a d**k and be kind to one another. Appreciate what you have and be there for each other.
Life has been pretty full on lately and it can definitely be overwhelming. Here is your reminder to laugh, not just a giggle but a full on belly laugh, the kind that makes you snort or squeal and hurts your cheeks. So grab your partner, a friend and your favourite bevy and have a good laugh 🤣 trust me it will make you feel a little bit better.
We can dance! ⠀ New Zealand has ZERO Covid cases and is officially now in level 1! So we can dance, we can hug, we can have groups of any size, we can order from the bar and other than our borders it is all on its way to normal. ⠀ I am looking forward to worry free weddings. I am excited about normal grocery shopping. And tonight I will be pub quizzing in a real pub, ordering a beer direct from the bar and I will most likely even do a little dancing. What are you looking forward to about level 1?
