Surprise Proposal

Last year on my birthday I had the pleasure of photographing a surprise proposal for Nazmeen and Avon. I was excited to be doing a photoshoot in Stanley Park. Before the initial meet up I had corresponded with them about where they’d like to have these photos taken. They decided they wanted a mix of city, ocean and forest. The best place I could think of for that combination was Stanley Park. I thought this was going to be a normal couple shoot but Avon had planned a surprise proposal. The shoot was easy going and fun, it felt like we were going on a tour of Stanley Park, stopping along the way to catch their unique love in the moment.

The last location we stopped at was Third Beach. The sun was setting and I felt content I had captured enough photos. Just as I was about to wrap up the session, Avon asked me if I could take one more photo, of course I agreed. Then in what felt like slow motion he got down on one knee in front of Nazmeen with the sun setting over the ocean in the background. I was trying to hold it together so I could still manage to capture what turned out to be the most important photo of the session. I wasn’t even the person being proposed to, and I was in complete shock. It was such an amazing feeling to be apart of such an intimate experience. They were wrapped up in their own moment, which was a perfect way to capture their genuine emotion. They’re the most adorable couple and are completely in love. This is why I do what I do.
