Dale & Karlie (dkphotographyau)
Dale Sharpe and Karlie Russell make up the talented team at DK Photography. They’re based in Queensland, Australia and, like many Australians, travel often. They recently took a trip to Norway, where Dale proposed under the Northern Lights to create an amazing moment that you can see in the photo below.
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. ?
