The Coromandel elopement of Jesse and Suzi at the Falls Retreat in Karangahake Gorge, Waihi was something truly special. Passionate about acting, Jesse wasn't shy around the cameras. In fact, he gave us a little treat in form of a recording through his mic, which was a total surprise to us. Jesse wanted an elopement videographer for the wedding and he really had high expectations, which meant we got our chance to be super creative!
As the wedding day was actually on Halloween, and Jesse being a horror film genre fanatic!, these two requested having some footage with their scary face masks on. We of course jumped on board and if you watch the film till the very end, you'll catch a glimpse of a skull-headed man seducing his bride-to-be, with a twist of some old-school cinema flavour. We also jumped on the chance to do some last minute elopement photography - most of it were just group photos of them with their kids and immediate families along with a few portraits by the waterfall.
Needless to say, we had so much fun capturing this beautiful day with all the quirkiness! And the personalities of these two made it even more special. I think all of us can say that we felt more like friends during this time than anything else!
