New Zealand is well known for its scenic landscapes, and what a waste it would be if couples were to simply rush from one spot to another just for a few photographs. We love these photos for their sense of adventure and you can just feel the couple enjoying the experience. The idea behind your bridal portraits should be to make memories and capture your genuine love for each other, not to stage it.

Indra of Iluminen: “This wasn’t a typical pre-wedding shoot, it was more of a ‘let’s go on an adventure’. We drove for hours listening to music and stopped at places that caught our interest. We parked along wide open fields, fired up the stove, cooked our meals and enjoyed our wine.”

Frankly, we can’t think of a better way for a couple to see the world together before they put a ring on it. Kudos to Iluminen for these awesome shots!
