Dreamy New Zealand Nuptials | with Levien Photography

Our hearts are bursting as we showcase this lovely pre-wedding shoot. We love these shoots because they allow for creativity and connection that can be lost or hurried during the wedding day. Olga Levien captured all the right emotion her photoshoot with Fiona and Silas Lau. We're excited to bring this across the ocean to our viewers!

Our pre-wedding engagement photo shoot with Fiona & Silas on Muriwai Beach {Auckland} was just amazing. We met with couple few months ago when they been looking for photographer for their upcoming wedding in Matakana.

Stars come together and we right away felt a good connection at first consultation. Long story short pre-wedding session was a great idea and allowed us to see each other again, walk and talk and get some stunning photographs on the way.

Couples story just amazing, Fiona shared some info: “We were from the same school growing up in Malaysia so we’ve known each other since we were 11. Never really talked to each other more until we met each other in Otago, Dunedin where we studied. We went to the same church, served on the team together, through Easter camp we got to know each other a lot better and realised we had endless things to talk about! We’ve been together for almost 5 years!” Proposal was really romantic too: “Planned to go to Gold Coast for a fun weekend with friends who were in on the plan. Last night before we left, we were taking photos as a group by the jetty, I had someone take a video while pretending to just take photos. Got on one knee and popped the question.”

Our time together was so treasured and beautiful, couple really show up all their emotions and feeling towards each other, it was a great pleasure to observe moments happening unfold, couples love and care towards each other.
