Spier Proposal – with help from the Perfect Proposal

Posted by | · · · | Engagements | No Comments

A special trip to Cape Town, a private picnic at Spier Wine Estate, and then he proposed!

I woke up on the morning of 26 November 2014 with butterflies in my stomach. I was shooting a live proposal in the afternoon and I was excited and nervous. “What if she sees me?”, “What if she says no?”, “What if…” – thoughts of all the things that could go wrong were running through my head all day. I triple checked my gear, and drove through to Spier to meet Phillipa from the Perfect Proposal, who had set up the picnic for Danie & Patricia. As soon as I got there, I started to relax. The setup looked amazing, and I knew that the couple would love it.

After taking some pictures of the beautiful setup, Phillipa and I went around the corner to hide as Danie brought Patricia to the picnic area.

As soon as they had arrived at the picnic spot, I ran around to get a shot of what I knew was about to happen – Danie got down on one knee and asked his beautiful girlfriend to marry him.

After giving the happy couple a few moments for the reality of being engaged to sink in, I did a mini couple shoot with them to celebrate their big day.
