Sophie & Charlie {Engaged}

Charlie was so excited to be showing his girlfriend Sophie his home country of South Africa.  Sophie just didn’t know she’d be returning to New Zealand as his fiancée. But a walk up Table Mountain one evening as the sun was setting lead Charlie to asking the most nerve wracking, yet exciting question of his life. Sophie thought she’d slow things down a touch though (before knowing that the question was coming) by casually wanting to grab something to drink when they got to the top! … As Charlie panicked and the sun was almost set, he managed eagerly lead her to a spot he that was perfect enough to ask his beauty to become his wife! … So there on top of the beautiful Table Mountain in Cape Town,  Sophie and Charlie… were engaged.

Sophie and Charlie currently reside in Wellington. So we literally had ONE shot to capture their engagement before they get married in October…. and what a STUNNER of a morning it was at the beach!

The sunrise was divine, a true reflection of you both Sophie and Charlie. We had the most fun running up and down the beach that cold, fine morning and we’re so excited to catch up and do this all again in October. Bring on your wedding I say!!

All the best for now,
Heather & Doug xoxo
