Newcastle Engagement Photography – Rach & Robert
I’ve known Rachel & Robert for quite a few years now, having attended the same high school as the couple in Maitland NSW. So of course when I saw on Facebook the announcement that Robert had proposed to his now fiancè Rach, I was incredibly excited for them!
The couples portrait session that I did with these guys we actually shot a few months before Robert got down on one knee – I actually remember posting a few of the images on my Facebook page and writing the words ‘engagement shoot’ without much thought and I guess just out of habit, only to be corrected by Rachel that it was just simply a couples portrait session. Perhaps I just predicted what was to come only a few months later…
Anyway, here is their story:
“Robert and I met in high school and started dating at the age of 16. We have been together for 6yrs and in January Robert and I went on a cruise to New Caledonia. We were exploring a small island and went to the top of a lighthouse found on the island. We were enjoying the view when I turned around to find Robert on one knee with a ring in his hand. He asked me to spend the rest of my life with him and of course I said yes!” – Rachel
