Sunday morning and I am hiding like a stalker in the willow trees at Mont Rochelle wine estate. Why? One of my besties is about to arrive for a picnic with her boyfriend. She has no idea that I am here. Feeling a little like Katniss from the Hunger Games, I pray she doesnt see me… one last text message from said boyfriend: this is it.
She said yes!
What an incredible honour to photograph such a personal moment and get to be there to celebrate their joy.
Its not everyday that an engagement has the look of a styled shoot and yet, is a very real, very DIY e-shoot… definite kudo’s to the creative bride-to-be, Tammy! Set in the beautiful Newlands Forest, that table and fruit basket had to be carried up the mountain – well done Marcus… 😉
Location: Newlands forest, Cape Town
