Deep South West between the rolling hills of the Hokitika Gorge I met with a very nervous Caleigh and Danielle for the first time. In a little under an hour Caleigh was going to pop her girlfriend THE BIG QUESTION. Although it was suppose to be a surprise proposal, Caleigh had experienced some troubles keeping the secret completely hidden from Danielle. None of that mattered though, they had made it here and now there was only one thing left to do.
I got myself into a pretty decent position while Caleigh and Danielle were waiting for a little moment to themselves on opposite sides of the bridge. Asking her best friend the big question on a dangling high bridge was picked by Caleigh with precision. You see, she has always had a huge fear of heights, but she knew that together with her partner for life, she would be able to overcome all of her fears. The first one being, walking towards the middle of that bridge on her own. It was the most romantic thing I have ever witnessed.
After slipping the incredible ring on the finger of her now fiancée, they made it down to the bottom of the gorge to have some photographs taken of their love for one another. Caleigh had tattooed the coordinations of the proposal location on the side of her arm, so frickin cool! Although the water had seemed to lost some of it striking blue color by the previous rain, we wished we were able to spend all day there taking in all the beauty of this natural wonder. Till next time you beauty.
