On Sunday afternoon I had the incredible privilege to be invited to capture a very special moment for Aaron and Sam. You see earlier in the week I had a phone call from Aaron and we discussed a couple shoot for his gorgeous girl Sam but with a twist. Aaron wanted to propose to Sam and thought it would be a wonderful idea to have a photographer there to capture the moment. I have been wanting to photograph a proposal for such a long time, so I was so excited… but I was also a bit nervous. As I knew what was going on, I had to play dumb, like nothing was happening and of course, so much pressure to make sure I was able to capture the moment. Aaron and I discussed how we would start the shoot and the exact place where he would propose. It was then up to him. Sam had absolutely no idea, as the entire day had been a surprise – she thought she was just heading out the movies, but Aaron had other ideas. The day started off celebrating with family, followed by a beautiful helicopter ride over Brisbane, then a gorgeous couple shoot with me at sunset (where Aaron proposed) and finishing off with dinner!
I am so glad that everything went to plan and that Aaron and I were able to pull off the surprise. I absolutely love Sam’s reaction – she had no idea and was so surprised. And the ring, oh my goodness it was so beautiful. Aaron had it secretly made from a design that Sam picked out ages ago, but had no idea.
Thank you both so much for asking to me to capture this special moment for you. You guys are truly such a lovely couple and I wish you all the best!!! Here is a little sneaky peek of some more photographs!!
