Back in November last year I was honoured to be part of capturing a surprise engagement.
My dear friend Kelly had been approached by her friend Josh, asking if she could capture this once in a lifetime moment. Kel and I were chatting that afternoon and as we caught us, she shared her excitement but nervousness at the magnitude of the task. I flippantly said how cool it would be to be a part of the night and she jumped at my throw away line. "Yes! Come!" she said. "Really?" replied I. That was all it took. She called the groom to be who was all, 'the more the merrier!' and it was on.
I had 30mins to get ready (luckily the batteries were already charged!) and took the long drive across town to my friend's place, then further still to Mickleham where a perfect scene was set for the surprise. It felt like something out of Country Style magazine! As we drove to their property, the clouds were ominously black and we weren't sure how we'd go. But in the end, we needn't have worried. Josh asked and Emma said yes... then we revealed ourselves.
Congratulations lovely Emma and Josh! It was so much fun to witness this special moment.
