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.

  • Here he is... Logan. This is the little guy who just couldn't wait to make his entrance into the world. He was in such a hurry Jemmah's pregnancy shoot almost didn't happen. (read the previous post) I'm grateful he gave us a few hours grace to allow us to capture the pregnancy stage. Isn't he the sweetest!

  • THE PREGNANCY SHOOT THAT ALMOST DIDN'T HAPPEN - Scheduled for the first time during 'the big wet', this shoot had to be rescheduled 3 times before we finally had a day with enough light to shoot. We were ready to shoot at 8.30am.... that was until Jemmah's water broke at 6.30am. Amazingly she still wanted to go ahead. "Don't worry, we've got this" her message to me read. I shuffled a few of my other bookings around, pushing her shoot time back and after she was checked over at the birth center she was given the all clear to go home and do the shoot. I am so pleased I got to document this special time. As the day went on I couldn't help but wonder how everything was going. I got a text message the following day... a boy! Stay tuned for the newborn photos, he is a cutie!!
