Surprise Engagement

surprise engagement

Zac called me last week with a secret mission in mind. He was going to propose to his girlfriend Caroline and wanted the moment captured. Caroline had a pretty good idea that Zac was planning on proposing and thought it was going to happen while they were in America later this month but Zac really wanted to catch her by surprise so put together other plans. Being in the military, he sent me this detailed plan of how it was all going to go down at Queens Gardens.
Screen Shot 2018-10-05 at 5.18.45 PMZac’s friend Dan and I arrived early, Dan hid in the maze with the music and champagne and I pretended to be a bird photographer. They arrived, walking down the path in front of the maze and as soon as Zac said on cue the words “this is the best” Dan started playing one of their favorite songs… Zac then dropped to one knee and proposed pulling out the most incredible diamond ring to seal the deal. She said YES!!
To say Caroline was surprised is an understatement. She didn’t even remember saying yes. It’s wonderful they have these images to re-live the moment over and over again. Being part of this mission was super cool and so much fun!
The craziest part of this story is on the morning of the scheduled day of the proposal Caroline sent Zac a picture of this exact location saying she wanted to go there to use her new camera…. These two certainly are on the same page.
If want to see all the magic unfold pop over to the blog –
Congratulations Zac and Caroline!!! I hope your life together is full of happy surprises like this one.

  • This family walk this beach most afternoons. They have their special spots along the way – the log that the kids balance along and the rocks. They enjoy watching the kids play while the sky turns from blue to purple to pink. In years to come when they look at these images hopefully they will remember not only the day we did the shoot but also all the other days they were there as a family. Hopefully they will remember how it felt to be there.

  • A little something to think about during the festive season.
  • Baby Sadie has arrived and Asta is bursting with joy. Look at the excitement on that gorgeous little face.
  • Tis the season for family visiting. It’s a great opportunity to document the love you share. We have limited spots left for the holiday season so get in quick :)
  • When I photographed Sophie as a 3 year old she had all the moves so I knew she was going to be incredible to shoot for her graduation. She's simply stunning!
  • When I first met Teal to chat about her graduation photoshoot I thought her Mum looked familiar... turns out I photographed Teal when she was about 1. How time flies (and how old do I feel). This was the last shot of the day and is my favourite!

  • The good thing about having a sister who is a photographer is she takes photos of your kids…. the bad thing about it is, you never see the photos she takes. Just ask my sister, she’ll tell you all about it. All of that changed this week when my sister and niece viewed the images I shot only two weeks ago. Yassss, Aunty of the year!

  • My favourite thing to capture... hands down is love. If you look for it, it’s everywhere.
  • Family coming together really is the best part about Christmas. This year I am not going away, so if you want to document having everyone in the same spot get in contact now to lock in a shoot. Megan.
