This beautiful Mountain Engagement Shoot was filled with Husky kisses, extreme hiking and lots of laughing! I had so much fun with this shoot, thanks Tanya and Jacques! you guys are a great couple.
The Love Story
Jacques and I met through a mutual friend at our church. He invited my friend and me to go dancing at an Afrikaans “Sokkie” place.
He was blown away that an English girl who had just come back from the UK could “Sokkie” better than most Afrikaans girls.
From that night we have been great friends ever since. What we both never realized is that we fell in love and are now inseparable.
How He Proposed
I knew from the word GO that I wanted to get married to this man, but the question on everyone’s lips was when will he ask? So he planned this very romantic holiday to Dubai for 11 days.
We spent every moment of the 11 days going to see some of the most amazing sights which included the Burj Khalifa (The tallest building in the world).
At the end of our trip to everyone’s surprise, especially my own, he had not asked me the question I was waiting anxiously for him to ask?
A few months past and yet again he planned a retreat weekend for the both of us at the Protea hotel in Clarens.
We spent the Friday and Saturday spoiling me with lavish dinners and game drives not to mention the river rafting only for the weekend to pass by with no question?
He told me he wanted to end off the weekend on the Sunday just by going for a brisk hike in the Clarens mountains.
When we got to the top he set up a small pick nick where we had something to drink and some small snacks in which he included my favored kinder ball chocolate.
I opened the one side and devoured the chocolate within.
I then continued to open the other half which normally contains a small kids toy, yet to my surprise, there was the most breathtaking ring inside.
Before I could begin to fathom the beauty of this ring he was on his knee beside me asking me to spent the rest of my life with him.
