I have been so lucky lately to be a part of a lot of surprise proposals. I absolutely love it when a couple books a couples photography shoot and then suddenly someone drops to one knee during the shoot! My heart is in my mouth and my fingers are tingling because I know that it is about to happen! The rest of the world melts away, they forget I am even there, I see nothing but them and the purest most magical declaration of love there is. I’m glad my camera is in front of my face to hide the tears in my eyes as I see the initial surprise turn to pure joy. It’s raw and it’s real and in this modern world that we live in there are so few moments like that that I want to stay in it as long as I can. The rest of the shoot is different, it has a new vibe to it, they are free, they are walking on air and they transform before my lens. They are dancing on clouds and the camera catches it all. Having pictures as keepsakes of this moment is something that you will treasure forever.
As an engagement photographer in Queenstown New Zealand, I am at a huge advantage. Massive outpourings of love require epic backgrounds that can match them and we have them in abundance here. Whether you want towering cascading waterfalls, lush green forests, turquoise glacial lakes, or majestic age-old mountains, we have it all. There is something so fitting about capturing a couple’s love while surrounded by mountains. They are strong, unbreakable, and everlasting and if that is what you want for your marriage then I highly recommend you consider getting engaged in New Zealand.
