Imagine carrying a diamond round with you for 8 whole months waiting for the right time to pop the question. Imagine doing it around South Africa. George was a brave man and Hayley was so excited when George did finally pop the question in Cape Town going on 2 years ago.
We came out to where George grew up in Leeston. His parents bought this property in the 70’s and over the years built it into a beautiful garden. (Not just any old garden). I was doing a few too many happy dance-heel clicks with the endless options of places we could shoot!
And just when you think the shoot has come to an end… I went to say good bye to George’s Mum and saw this unravel before my eyes! One valuable piece of advice I once read in a photography book… ‘Never put your camera away until you’ve completely left your shoot.’ So true! Some of the best things come out in those very last moments.
