Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of photographing Steven and Pennyâ€™s engagement shoot here in Queenstown.Â Â However I wasnâ€™t the only one who got quite a surprise when Steven popped the question to Penny right there in front of me in the beautiful Queenstown Gardens!Â (As Steven hadn’t told me about this little detail I had thought they were already engaged!Â So needless to say when he dropped to one knee in front of Penny and pulled out a ring I got a bit of a shock!).
Iâ€™m still editing the images and I have to run out the door for a shoot at the stunning Peregrine Winery in Gibbston Valley any minute but I thought I would post a half dozen â€œteaserâ€ photos from Steven and Pennyâ€™s wonderful day here in the meantime.
Steven and Penny are a lovely couple and despite confessing to me later to having been quite nervous about their photo shoot we all had a ball and came up with some lovely, natural photos that I think reflect their personalities really well.
Anyway, I had better go and throw my camera bags in the car.Â I hope you enjoy this little teaser of Steven and Pennyâ€™s engagement shoot â€“ Iâ€™ll post more photos as soon as Iâ€™ve had a chance to catch my breath.Â (Iâ€™m also going to do a free StickyAlbum iPhone/iPad app for Steven and Penny displaying a selection of the best images from their engagement shoot.Â If youâ€™re interested in checking out StickyAlbums and want to get an idea of how they work and what theyâ€™re all about just post a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and Iâ€™ll send you the link and instructions on how to install the app on your iPhone/iPad/Android smart phone).Â Â I hope you enjoy the photos.
