Hinterland Romance

Engagement Shoot

Caity and Matt first met on the other side of the pond, at Lake Tahoe, in the Sierra Navada.

Both had taken up residence there on a working holiday and in fact were housemates.

Turns out that both had developed some feelings for one another.

It wasn’t long before housemates were a little more than just housemates.

It also turned out that they were both from Brisbane, which made coming back home so much easier!

The Proposal

Matt noticed Caity had been having a stressful week so decided to treat her to a nice dinner at their favourite restaurant.

Upon returning home, Caity noticed that their balcony had been covered with candles and fairy lights.

There was nothing left to do but for Matt to ask the magic question, and the rest, as they say, is history…

The Engagement Shoot

I had asked Caity and Matt if they had any favourite locations or a place they would love to remember their engagement by.

Of course the topic of Lake Tahoe came up but, despite my trying, they thought flying me over to Nevada for a shoot would be a little bit of a stretch.

I had a location in mind. Luscious and green with flowing streams.

Although it wasn’t Lake Tahoe, I hoped it would represent the essence of the place they first met. Were their friendship had developed and flourished.

We had a lot of fun jumping from rock to rock and testing our balance on fallen trees.

One of us even managed to slip and dip their toes in the creek…
