Lukas teamed up with my sister Zani
and her husband Du Wayne Denton
to plan a secret engagement couple shoot! Du Wayne’s been asking us for months to do a couple shoot for his portfolio. On the 5th of September 2010, a beautiful spring day, we set off to Grabouw to meet with Du Wayne
. He took beautiful pictures of us – long grass with the mountain in the background. We had so much fun! After a few hours we went to our last location – fresh new blossoming apple orchards! Breathtaking! Lukas stood behind me while Du Wayne
did his thing, then Lukas started to whisper sweet words into my ear … he once again declared his love to me and told me he had a present for me! He handed me a cute black and white box with green ribbon and broccoli (I’m vegetarian and broccoli is my favourite!) printed on the lid. I completely froze with shock and excitement mixed together. He told me I had to open the present. When I saw my gorgeous vintage diamond ring, he asked if I’d please be his wife. I was stunned. He had to repeat the question again, as I had still not answered him I said yes! We kissed non-stop and embraced each other. I had no idea Lukas would propose that day, nontheless at our couple shoot. Our magical moments and emotions captured on film, how great is that!
