Proposal / Engagement { Mike + Carly } ~

Posted by on Jul 27, 2015 in Engagements, Mike + Carly | No Comments

The first time I met Mike was at a mutual friend’s wedding. I didn’t know at the time that we were going to become great friends and that he was going to become an amazing wedding photographer but life has a way of taking its own course and i’m not complaining; I feel incredibly blessed to call Mike and Carly my good friends.
Mike is one of the few good friends that I have that is a photographer so we kind of started planning this sometime ago and the result was nothing short of amazing. Mike had everything organised and on the morning of the day he proposed, we met on location and made sure everything would go according to plan. There was some rain, a lot of rain in fact and two of my cameras were badly damaged but the story below is one of my personal favourites. The fact that I was able to witness a friend propose to his girl and to archive the whole event for them through images was beyond beautiful and something, i’ll never forget.
You could say that I am just a little excited about seeing these two kind hearted, beautiful souls tie the know but that would be an understatement.
This people, this is why what I do is not working, it’s simply living. Below is what happened when I flew to Byron Bay to photograph a man propose to his best friend.
