Photographing a proposal

hidden photographer_1

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.
