Phil & Alex's Engagement at Pretville
During September my friend Phil from Evoke photography contacted me to do a couples photoshoot with a twist. He wanted to surprise Alex with a shoot but wanted to use that as an opportunity to propose to her.
He wanted a venue that offered a range of different backdrops that offered a fun "pin up" feel to it. Pretville is always my favourite for these kinds of shoots.
Alex had no idea what Phil had up his sleeve, and she thought she was just there for a photoshoot. Looking back at the images, they tell a story of a "bad boy" plumber, that meets the girl of his dreams when getting a call out to fix her kitchen pipes. She then invites him to stay for dinner, and the two start there secret love affair.
(This storyline by the way was completely unplanned from our sides and just worked out this way)
Alex is however connected to somebody else, and phil goes off the rail when he finds this out. He had spent a lifetime trying to find her and wasn't prepared to let her get away without a fight.
Without hesitation he went out and bought a beautiful diamond ring with a proposal in mind. The ring was shaped like Alex's favourite flower - the Protea.
He meet up with Alex later in the day at a local dinner to work things out.
The following day, they decided to go on their first date where Phil planned the perfect proposal. He picked her up in this pastel green vintage car and the look her gave her was evidence of love at first site.
When the moment was perfect - he popped the question.
Days following they celebrated their love for each other.
They ever went on their first trip together to French toast in mini Paris. . .
