We had this dream to capture the happy moments in an engagement, the shock, the excitement and the sheer beauty of the ring.
One of the best elements of this shoot is the fact we were able to collaborate with amazing service providers across the board. Being able to sit together with The Perfect Proposal and Shiny Rock Polished and gather inspiration from each other was inspiring.
We wanted to capture two different looks with this styled shoot; the wintery warm feeling and the causal acceptance between the couple. And we achieved this - we were so happy!
We wanted to prove that an engagement doesn't have to be a flashy event, it can be simple, understated and intimate.
This is also one of the reasons we brought a Otto (the dog) on set - he created a whole new atmosphere and most couples have a shared pet so we were glad to be able to capture him in the shots.
The beach element of the shoot was to capture a more elegant and simple look - almost as if the couple are going for a stroll after a delicious meal at a local restaurant. A unplanned engagement is always the best and receives the most exquisite reactions, happy, excited and those exact facial expressions are what we wanted to capture in this shoot.
The Perfect Proposal:
Pippa is a woman with artistic flair and we love working with her as she brings along a new and exciting element to each project we work on! She is also the owner of our handsome pooch model - Otto!
Cathé Pienaar Photography:
A young and talented photographer we just HAD to work with! Cathé's photographs are beautiful and natural in all the rights ways.
Shiny Rock Polished:
Anthony & Patricia from Shiny Rock Polished are two of the most amazing people you'll ever meet - their creativity and passion for beautiful jewellery is evident in their work and we were privileged to be able to use their engagement rings in our shoot!
Makeup & Hair by MB:
Madeleine is the hair and makeup artist you just have to have for your wedding - she's beyond talented and will make you feel even more beautiful than you already are!
We set out to achieve a set of photographs we thought potential brides-to-be would love, inspire the grooms-to-be to pop the questions and this is what we did. We are thrilled with the outcome of this styled shoot.
Cheers to the month of love and future engagements!!
Let The Perfect Proposal assist you on your special day to create the most romantic event for you and your partner!
I fell into makeup, well not literally - actually come to think of it, I’ve done that too. What I meant to say was make up completely took me by surprise on my own wedding da...
