Surprise engagement during a heatwave. Peter proposed to Claire high up in the Swiss Alps overlooking Interlaken.

I wasn’t known to Claire as this was going to be a surprise engagement. I was doing my best to be a photographer capturing the landscape whilst Claire and Peter enjoyed their picnic.
It was late afternoon and Peter had followed my directions to the car parking area. They followed me up the private road to the location. It was a 10 minute uphill walk.

I was wondering how long their picnic would last. Suddenly I saw them standing up and Peter going down on one knee. I leapt into action. It is always a difficult moment but I do have enough experience to concentrate on capturing the moment.
