If nothing else, the good and bad examples can serve as inspiration for those who will be looking to capture their special moment. Good luck topping this photo though!
You’ll need to first trek North to the Arctic Circle, then have incredible timing…and the skill to actually pull of the shot that you’ll see below. Dale Sharpe popped the question(after his first attempt failed…read more here) to Karlie Russell in front of the most stunning Northern Lights display I’ve seen in a long time.
The pair had the skills and the equipment at the ready, as they’re both landscape photographers based out of Australia! Congrats Dale & Karlie!!
Lofoten, Norway… ______________________________________ WE'RE ENGAGED! What a better way to propose than in the heart of the Arctic Circle under the Northern Lights. It's taken a few years to plan but I always had this moment in mind & it seemed fitting as we are both landscape photographers who share a passion for photographing the aurora. Originally I was going to propose in Iceland last year but unfortunately Karlie decided to discard my secretly stashed ring (yes, that actually happened 😂 lol, we were trying to cut weight on a connecting flight from the Faroe Islands). Fortunately though my plan worked & tonight the aurora was firing in one of the most incredible displays of colour we have ever seen. I tricked Karlie into believing we were shooting a selfie & used a torch to light us up for the image. Much to her shock, it wasn't any normal selfie, and much to my shock, she said yes! 😝 This is a single image that was taken during the proposal. And now we may not have any of our own images up hanging on our walls at home...we may however, make an exception for this one. 💍 Dale & Karlie
