Ben contacted me to capture his proposal to Emily on top of Queenstown hill, I love a bit of adventure so was super stoked to be a part of it. Two days before Ben told me he had proposed at sunset in Kaikora, when the moment was perfect, but they still wanted to have an engagement session here in Queenstown. We met at the top of the hill and our little adventure began.

Ben and Emily’s love for each other is so honest and authentic, it was so inspiring to spend time with them, to see Emily just light up from Ben’s touch or her amazingly gorgeous laugh. The way Ben looks at Emily words can’t even describe, it is clear that she is his person.

Throughout their relationship they have written letters to each other, sharing their hopes and dreams and love for one another. So soon after their engagement they wrote each other a letter and saved it to read to one another during their photo shoot.

Adventure sessions are my favourite, getting out and exploring with 2 amazing souls are the best days. Ben and Emily also truly love an adventure, 6 months after their engagement in New Zealand they had a party for their friends back in the states, it was meant to be a party before they went off on a year trip around the world. Turns out their leaving party in a taco restaurant in Chicago was a surprise wedding!!

We had an amazing Queenstown sunset, so it seemed fitting to stop at the basket of dreams to take it all in before the walk back down.
