Jakub and I were super excited about this Mount Cook wedding.

For me it was a chance to shoot in a few of my favourite and magical places, Lake Tekapo, the Mackenzie high country and most of all the spectacular that is Mount Cook.

For Jakub it was the chance to shoot with me, ha, no. It was the chance for the talented Melbourne based wedding photographer to shoot a wedding in the epic of New Zealand’s Mountains.

Now add an amazing couple, an incredibly beautiful chapel, a surprise helicopter to the snow (for Shanel at least, try keeping that secret) and a bunch of awesome friends and family, and you’ve got a hero wedding.

Hit play, sit back and check out what we saw…
