Keven & Danielle’s Happily Ever After in Sydney


We believe all of our photos have stories to tell, especially the ones that involve a kneel and a shiny ring! Thanks to our photographers, we’ve been able to capture many moments with stories  that make us smile, sigh—and sometimes—reach out for a Kleenex box.

Though we love sharing all of our traveler stories, we can’t deny that we gush over a happily ever after! I mean, who says you need to be in a Disney movie to experience a magical moment? 

If you’re looking for a tug at your heart-strings, keep reading you’re in for a treat!

A magical afternoon captured

Keven and I had been planning to travel to Australia after my STEP 1 exam to finally make it to our 6th continent. Little did I know, he had been planning behind the scenes with my family to make this whole thing happen. 

We landed in Sydney Monday morning and explored Manly Beach until our room in Shangri-La was ready. Once we returned, Keven told me he wanted to stop by the Royal Botanical Gardens to take pictures with the sunset. 


He asked me to take a panorama of the opera house and bridge, while he "set up his tripod”. I turned around and he was on one knee! After I said yes, a woman approached us - Keven hired a photographer to photograph the proposal and a spontaneous engagement session afterward. It was truly a magical afternoon, and I couldn’t have imagined a better moment to say yes to the man of my dreams!

Our time in Sydney

Our favorite thing we saw in Sydney was the Bondi to Coogee walk! We loved seeing the beautiful coastlines and everything in between. Also, we highly recommend the restaurant 55 Riley St Garage. We loved it so much, we returned twice. Everything recommended to us was bold and flavorful - we’d definitely return!
