Ngarua Caves wedding photo shoot

Chrissy and I had the pleasure of photographing Greg & Rachel’s wedding last summer. Greg loves caving, so they both decided to put their wedding clothes back on for a cave photo shoot with Nelson Wedding Photography.

I bought my good friend and fellow photographer along to help me with the lighting. Glenn and I knew that the low light in the cave would be a challenge to photograph in, so we carried in a number of portable lights and equipment to illuminate the scene.

Each different photo location within the cave took quite some time to set up, on average we were using four strobe lights to create the mood.

This area reminds me of a scene from Lord Of The Rings.

Awesome fun guys, some of these shots are going to make spectacular pages in your photobook. What are we going to do next?
