Tia had no idea what Travis had up his sleeve, or rather in his pocket! She was lead to believe that they were having a photo shoot with me and the location chosen was in the fields at the Durban Skydive Centre. She saw that there was activity happening, as the hot air balloon was being set up but didn’t know that she was going to be hoisted up in it. I started by posing them in front of the balloon and then the BIG moment happened….!!!! Travis went down on one knee and revealed the secret he had in his pocket – a diamond engagement ring! Yes, he asked her to marry him and she said “Yes.” After that everyone was ready to go on board, including me and we went high up, in among the clouds, so Tia was truly on Cloud Nine! I now look forward to doing their wedding!
