Shane contacted me about a month ago with the idea to propose to his girlfriend of 6 years, Sukh.
The plan was to treat it like a normal couple photoshoot but for one of the poses, Sukh would turn around and throw rose petals in the air when I counted down from three for a cute “rainfall-of-flower-petals” photo, and Shane would be waiting for her down on one knee asking her to marry him.
It went perfectly. Sukh didn't expect a thing and managed to hold back her tears but was shaking afterwards from excitement and kept asking if this was real! After taking some time to celebrate and calm down, we continued the golden hour couple photoshoot that now turned into an engagement shoot! From legislature grounds to a lookout point with the university campus in sight where they met 7 years ago. One of my most memorable photoshoots of my life so far.
I’m not exaggerating when I say Shane and Sukh are two of the kindest and most appreciative people I have ever met. Beautiful couple inside and out and I couldn't be happier for them and so grateful to capture such a special moment in their relationship. Time to plan the wedding!
Thank you also to my wonderful girlfriend Sunny for assisting me, bouncing light, having backup makeup just in case of tears, and for capturing the proposal on video :) These photos wouldn’t have been possible without her.
