You know it’s a sure sign warm weather is around the corner when you see a happy carnival-style engagement session like this one. This cute pair decided to celebrate their engagement with a shoot at the Royal Easter Show in Auckland, where there’s no shortage of colourful backdrops to feast your eyes on! We totally love their fun vibe and relaxed style in front of the camera. In fact, we’re not sure who may have had more fun at this e session – the lovebirds or Coralee & Alex (who snapped all their gorgeous pics). Judging by this, their wedding will be awesome and you’ll never guess what theme they’re going with? …. a carnival wedding theme of course!
From the photographer: Courtney and Cori are a treat! When Courtney emailed us and suggested we do their engagement session at The Royal Easter Show, we thought it was a freaking awesome idea! After a couple of coffees to fuel up, we hit the show late Easter Monday when the light was low and (hopefully) the crowds had died down a bit (they hadn’t). As an added bonus they reduced the entry fee to $10 (from what used to be a whopping $50…..or something ridiculous like that!).
Courtney and Cori are hands down the cutest, most ridiculously bubbly, friendly, awesome and completely head-over-heels-in-love with each other people, we’ve ever met. The kind of people that when you meet, you never want to say goodbye to at the end of the shoot, ’cause you just want to go and hang with them some more.
In-between gobbling down candy apples, hot-dogs and candy floss, we managed a few laps and photographed the playful couple amongst the carnival rides. As the sun dipped behind the Super Loop we enjoyed way too many Lil’ Orbits donuts before we said farewell. But never fear, in true Courts & Cori style, these two will be having……you guessed it…..a CARNIVAL themed wedding next year. As we strolled around the Easter Show, Courtney excitedly pointed out all of the rides they had booked to be at their wedding! Yup, fun-park rides at a wedding! Can’t wait. Courts and Cori, congratulations on your engagement! Quite possibly the cutest couple….EVER.
