A proposal at Makaranga Garden Lodge in Durban.

I just love proposals. Jarryd contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I could photograph him proposing to Caitlin at Makaranga  Garden Lodge in Hillcrest, Durban.  Makaranga Lodge is stunning with various gardens. The proposal took place at the Japanese Gardens which is absolutely picturesque.

When I arrived, Jarryd and Caitlin’s friends and family were busy setting up some decor and rose petals.  Jarryd arrived a few minutes before Caitlin. We chatted about the moment and I could see that Jarryd was a little nervous but ready to ask the lady of his dreams the big question.

Caitlin arrived and had a little distance to walk to the place where Jarryd was waiting. I am not sure if Caitlin saw me but I was pretending to enjoy the gardens, taking photos of flowers and birds.

As Caitlin approached Jarryd, she become quite emotional and Jarryd went down on one knee and popped the question. She said YES – amazing. Loved every minute of this. Thanks Jarryd and Caitlin for allowing me to capture this beautiful proposal.
