Hi Kurt, I would love to book in a surprise proposal for my partner, I want to ask, is there any way of getting some accessories at the proposal? I am looking for flower petals, candles, etc. anything to make the surprise feel a little bit more special for her. I can't wait to hear back from you, thank you!'
From that simple email an incredible surprise was in store for Hiten's girlfriend Rochelle as she walked up the hill unbeknownst to all the meticulous planning that had taken place days before.
Hiten really wanted to make a statement and so I immediately put him in touch with my awesome lighting assistant Stefan - a fellow Aussie. Together they devised the champagne, the rose petals (bio paper of course) and yes, 'smoke bombs'...
I was not exactly sure about the smoke bombs as I felt it was a bit of a fad, but truth be told - and besides alerting the entire city of Prague down below - it worked out beautifully.
Rochelle not only had the surprise of her life but was laughing like mad as a huge cloud of smoke engulfed them.
Later after all was said and done (she definitely said yes!) we headed up to the 'Secret Garden' and captured a few wonderful & intimate moments as these two viewed the twinkling lights of a city down below on the happiest day of their lives. Those pictures of them up there during that wonderful time are for them. Pictured below are some of their favorite images (and ours too).
Congrats Hiten, you definitely made a statement and thank you for the following fantastic words that you left on my Google Business Page:
Kurt and his team were amazing! Everything from pre-planning to the day of the shoot to all the service afterwards has been incredible. They made the day so special and we loved our photos!!
