Eden & Jayden
Romantic Destination Proposal Photographer
This lovely couple came all the way from Canada to visit Eden’s family in the UK. Eden found me on Instagram quite a while ago. Sometime after, I made a promotion offering a free session for any couple’s who where looking to have a couple’s photo shoot or engagement photography in the Peak district / Cheshire / Manchester and Eden won the giveaway! It was a very special session for them as this would be the first time Jayden had come to England and therefore a great memory to look back on.
A few days before the photo shoot, Jayden contacted me with some very special news. He was planning on proposing to Eden! She had no idea of what was going to happen at the photo session and how it would become a proposal / engagement photography session.
I had to keep it top secret.
We met up early hoping to get the best lighting. On the way there, Jayden who was driving noticed how the roads here are much narrower and the cars smaller. Driving on small roads is complicated enough, then add to it the factor of being on the opposite side that you are used to drive in. He did a really great job !
Our first stop was at the Snake Pass which is about 25 minutes from Castleton, Hope Valley. On our journey we went past Ladybower Reservoir, and then we noticed that the Snake Woodland was on our left, so we decided to make a stop and start the engagement session in that patch of woods. Here is where the adventure started.
Halfway through the photo shoot, a guard from the park came to us asking why we were there. We explained that we were just taking a few pictures as they were visiting that area for the first time. That reason must have been a good enough one, because he let us continue. We ventured deeper into the forest and found a little clearance with a river. It was like a little piece of heaven and we decided that it was a fantastic place to light the blue smoke bomb.
We then moved to the next location which would be where, Jayden would propose!
When we got to Winnats Pass it was windy and the weather had worsen. However, this did not stop us and we started to hike up.
When we got to the top, he kneeled down and Eden’s reaction was absolutely priceless! 😀
He popped the question and she said YES! The whole thing was like something out of a romantic movie.
Have a peak of it all in the portfolio entry here.
