Brandon & Shandré

[dropcap color=”rosy”]I[/dropcap] had a photographer (Claire) about 5 months before the big day, and had planned everything in the finest detail to make sure that my fiance (Shandré) would be surprised when I popped the question.

After booking Claire, I set up a email competition where the “prize” was a themed couple shoot. I got one of Shandrés friends to encourage her to enter.

About 4 month’s later I informed the Claire that she could make the call to Shandre (under a false name and company name I might add!) to let her know that she was the winner of a couple shoot.

The weeks leading up to the shoot had my nerves in taters. On the day a makeup artist came along to do Shandrés make up, and while they were busy, myself  and Claire a moment to go chat and get our story straight… and also to paste the engagement ring into a vintage Vanity Fair magazine she had brought along as a prop.

The plan was that I would know the time had come, when Claire asks us to lie on our stomachs and page slowly through the magazine, and she would just take pictures.

It took us sometime to page through the magazine, but eventually we reached THE page.

I asked Shandre to stand up, and I went to  one knee to “pop the question”

And she said YES!!!

    “Others will say, loving someone is tiring: sometimes happy, sometimes you’ll cry!
    They said I’d have enough someday.
    I said to them, that is not true, you know why? “when does ever a person had enough if his love is true..”
