Me: Do you think she suspects anything?
Tarryn: NOTHING! Otherwise she wouldn’t be snoozing during her pedicure 😜
Tarryn messaged me a week ago, her sister’s boyfriend Johann wanted to propose and they wanted to document the occasion. Was I excited that I would finally tick off a surprise engagement off the list. We were so undecided about the venue, Tsitsikamma and Bush Man’s River lodge where thrown into the mix, but I, as you all know, HUGE Robberg Nature Reserve fan, threw it out there and gently guiding Tarryn and Johann into choosing my spot.
Well, they did and when the day arrived we made special arrangements, Mirella would be pampered at a spa for the early afternoon and later brought to Robberg where I would be the unassuming landscape photographer. There was so confusion, about where the proposal will happen and with limited cell reception, I nearly missed my big debut! The shakes and adrenaline kicked in and we eventually found each other.
So my signal was given and well, it happened, Johann on his knee, a surprised Mirelle and me the unassuming landscape photographer capturing the moment while Tarryn, Dirk and Grayson took in the moment. Yes, she said YES!
I have shared so many couple’s happiness this year and I think each one is just as special as the previous, I am honestly lucky to share these moments with amazing people. Tarryn and Johann thank you for including me in your plans and this will be something that I won’t forget any time soon.
We had such an epic couples shoot, even though a seagull unloaded its entire stomach on my face and hair, we still made the magic happen. Those final moments on the beach while the sun was setting was so special.
