Elia & Matt
I have long proclaimed my love of the colder weather and for me, there is something special about Autumn and Winter sessions. So I am completely smitten with these stunning New Zealand coastal love photos from Bulb Creative. Elia and Matt have been married for five years and decided what better way to celebrate than with gorgeous photos together that capture their love of nature and each other?
The pair tells the story of how they came to be. “We are high school sweethearts. We met each other in year 11 through taking many of the same classes. Elia was new to the school and eyed Matt out from the beginning, she remembers calling her friends from her previous school and telling them about this cute guy she’d met. After just one year of late night phone calls and going to the movies as ‘just friends’, we started dating”.
“Even after being married for 5 years, we often find ourselves smiling with joy that we met and married each other so young (married at 21). We love spending time together and are always discovering new things to love about each other. We have similar interests in food and trying new things, wine, travelling and road trip adventures.”
I am a firm believer the seaside is even more beautiful in stormy weather, the pair taking to Tunnel Beach in Dunedin for their photographs, explaining “We just recently celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary and to celebrate went on a road trip around New Zealand’s South Island. We wanted some new photos of us that were natural, but intimate and captured some of our story. We love being in nature, so this location at Tunnel Beach was just perfect.”
