Anastasia and Alex | Lake Okareka Engagement Photosession

Anastasia and Alex are high school sweethearts who started their relationship as friends and then watched it grow into something far greater...

For their photosession they decided to go to a beautiful and very quiet area at Lake Okareka, which is located just outside of Rotorua, Bay of Plenty. Lake Okareka is one of four small lakes lying between Lake Rotorua and Lake Tarawera. Alex grew up in this area so it has a sentimental value to him. 

We casually walked in the park and by the lake, while capturing candid moments of this lovely couple. At the end of the session, Anastasia and Alex enjoyed a nice picnic by the lake with some champagne and strawberries. What a romantic getaway!

Anastasia and Alex, thank you for spending an afternoon with us and sharing your love story! Look forward to working with you again in the future! Warmly, Pure Love xx
