Brooke and Ryan – Surprise Proposal in West Vancouver
A couple weeks ago, I had a work/ mini-vacation planned for Tofino with my brother. It was exactly what I needed for alittle refresh. Tyler and I, were headed there to hangout with some of our friends. One of our friends is a contestant on Top Chef Canada – Paul Moran who runs the kitchen at 1909 at the Tofino Marina. His Food is unreal and he is killing it in the competition right now. Ty, also had plans to pick up new piece of equipment for his landscaping Company StoneSet. So it was dual purpose for both of us.
I had schedule a few shoots in Vancouver for my way home. One of my sessions cancel on me last minute. The weather was going to be good, why not put it out there I had an opening for a couples session on the Tuesday night. Well, Brooke was the to first reached out to me that she’d love to book the spot.
I sent them all the information, we chatted about locations, which we decided on WHYTECLIFF PARK in West Vancouver. I sent them my couples questionnaire to fill out. They way they talked about each other, their life story, how long they’ve been together. Ahh and I remembering thinking, this would be THE perfect surprise proposal, but it’s not like I could go to Ryan and say you should really do this.
THE DAY of…
I was waiting at the ferry terminal leaving Vancouver Island and I get a call from an unknown number. Then a text, it was Ryan. He asked me if I wanted to help him turn this photoshoot into a surprise proposal!!OF COURSE. We had 4 hours to put a plan into place, cause the shoot was that night!!! We ran into a few glitches with people being in the location I wanted…we rearranged, and I am not sure if I was more nervous, cause Ryan wanted me to lead her into a pose…where he would take it from there. To say she was shocked would be an understatement….she cried, laughed, cried some more and i think remained in a state of excitement and shock the whole time. It was just a beautiful moment, I for sure cried behind the lens!!!
