I love hearing of how engagements came to be. How he proposed. How she reacted.
Neil took Kylie for dinner the night following her birthday to The Loose Box. A perfect proposal location if ever I could think of one and in lieu of revisiting Paris and the Eiffel Tower itself they had been to a few years before, it was the next best location.
As they were about to begin dinner, Neil asked Kylie a hypothetical question that is never really hypothetical. “If I asked you to marry me, what would you say?”
“Yes.” She said. Without a blink of an eye or a second thought.
Kylie and Neil are getting married next November at Millbrook Winery and just last weekend we got together for their engagement session. It was the first time we had actually met as all of our conversations before hand had been over email, and we had a great time around Crawley and Matilda Bay getting to know each other and photographing their love.
We began the session at an apartment complex that Neil and Kylie will one day call home. They are currently renting out the apartment but I love that they will be able to look back on these photographs and remember the big dreams for their future.
Afterwards we went down to the Matilda Bay foreshore to catch the last of the sun before it had disappeared behind the clouds.
A big thank you to Kassy Wong at Creations by Kassy for doing Kylie’s makeup for the shoot.
