A YOUR STORY that ended with a surprise proposal….PRICELESS!


When Jess booked a Your Story Portrait session and told me that she’d be proposing to Josie, I couldn’t WAIT to capture their reactions.

The beach really resonates with them so they decided to start at Jess’ dad’s house in Ocean Grove. They enjoyed a tea party and spot of climbing before heading to the beach.

The rainclouds held off as Jess and Josie’s adorable daughter, gave Josie a note.

Cue SURPRISE PROPOSAL, a ring and the best emotional reactions I’ve ever had the pleasure of capturing. Pure joy, laughs and tears abounded.

I was so honoured to document and share their special moment.

Here’s how I told their story. Enjoy!….
