Antonia & Bristow ♥ Piha Beach, New Zealand
Photographer: Kats Photos
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting New Zealand you’ll have witnessed some of the most breathtaking and diverse scenery in the world, first hand. From towering icy blue glaciers to active volcanoes, from mesmerising mirrored lakes to palm fringed-beaches and everything in between, these temperate islands in the South West Pacific Ocean are home to a completely unique and varied landscape.
Piha Beach sits on the wild west coast of the Auckland Region, on the North Island of New Zealand. Piha is one of the most popular beaches in the area (it’s not hard to see why, hello azure blue-ocean, tall dramatic rocks and pristine sandy beach!), however Antonia and Bristow managed a few quiet moments all to themselves in this magical setting, creating some of the most beautiful engagement photographs that you’ll probably ever see.
Over to the lady behind the lens to tell you more about this cute couple and these downright gorgeous images…
“Originally from Niue (an island country in the South Pacific Ocean) this beautiful couple now call Auckland, New Zealand their home. They have known each other their whole lives and both moved to New Zealand. In 2012, Antonia went back to Niue Island for a family function and she caught up with Bristow who (to her surprise) had moved back to the island a year earlier. Antonia fell instantly in love with Bristow and two days before she returned to New Zealand he declared his love for her!”
“They couldn’t be apart, so he moved to New Zealand to be with her and have been together ever since! They now share a beautiful nine-month old baby boy and are happily planning their wedding next year – that’s right, on beautiful Niue Island! Their engagement session took place on Piha Beach in New Zealand – famous for surfing, rescues (due to the crazy rips there), black-sand that burns your feet in summer and gorgeous scenery.”
