I recently did a photo shoot that was actually a secret proposal 🙂 I had wanted to do one of these for quite some time and was thrilled when Basil contacted me.
Isabel (his now fiance) and Basil’s sister had “gifted” Basil a couples photo shoot for his birthday (well so Isabel thought) with the help of Basil’s sister this was all set up and was in fact Basil’s idea and his gift to Isabel. Are you with me? haha
He had planned to propose to her during this photo shoot so we could capture it all. It was quite fun planning & scheming and all along Isabel had absolutely no idea (even when Basil secretly gave the ring box to my husband and then my hubby had to get it back to him right before he proposed) there was a lot of secret business happening that day.
We started out at the City Botanic Gardens (which is where Isabel wanted to have the photos).
And then we went to Victoria Gold Complex (for the proposal) which is where this lovely couple had their first date. We played dumb when Isabel had mentioned that Basil thought it might be nice to have a few photos at this spot.
Then the nerves kicked in…
and then this is when the magic happened!
We felt so honoured to able to capture this precious moment in their lives. Congratulations to such a wonderful couple!
Well I must start off by saying this has been one of our absolute favourite weddings to date! It was a huge honour to capture this special day, one because we already know Rivkah and her family, & two, because the location was up north at the stunning location of Paronella Park. It was a fun & wonderful adventure for us for a couple of days being up north.
These 2 are just perfection together, they have so much love and respect for one another as well as Rivkah’s (& now Jared’s) little girl.
Jared is a 4th year Infantry Captain (so is an officer) and has been serving in the army for 9 years. Obviously being in the army as an officer he is away from home often so the love that this family share is even more special as their time together is often limited.
They both could not wipe the smiles off their faces all day, and who would blame them! It was a gorgeous day for them and all of their family & friends.
So much thought & care was put into this special day and a lot of credit goes to the bride herself for many of the creations you see, including the bouquets & personalised shoes that all the girls wore. Be sure to check out her page – Mayleigh Rose Couture. She also made the bunting, glass window signs
The whole day I just felt like I was at a royal wedding, Rivkah certainly looked like a princess, she is a natural beauty as it is so then you put a stunning dress & some hair and makeup on and she looks spectacular! And then Jared looking handsome and “prince like” in his suit. These 2, paired with Paronella park definitely equals incredible images.
I am sure you will enjoy looking through their images as much as we enjoyed taking them!
