Shanel and Chris held their wedding ceremony in the amazingly picturesque Church of the Good Shepherd, a tiny chapel situated by the banks of Lake Tekapo. Afterwards we travelled to Aoraki / Mount Cook in New Zealand’s high country for some mountain-top photographs. Later that evening we made our way to the reception held the Hermitage Hotel located deep in New Zealand’s Mackenzie alpine region, which made for a perfect location to continue the celebrations.

I photographed this wedding with my good friend Jim Pollard, who invited me along to take part in documenting this beautiful day.

Thank you Shanel, Chris and Jim for this epic opportunity.
