It was the weekend before Valentine’s Day and Taylor & Chelsie had made their way up from Central Washington to downtown Vancouver, the heart of BC’s west coast, for a quick romantic getaway. The sun was out but so was the wind and so, as these two walked along the seawall encompassing downtown, they stopped in at a little coffee shop to warm up before continuing on their way.
Once they arrived at the beach, the cold breeze off the ocean picked up and Chelsie teetered on the edge of the beach, trying to hide, sheltered from the wind amongst the trees. She couldn’t understand why Taylor was so insistent on venturing just a little bit further down the beach. Soon they stopped their stroll, overlooking the ocean – a perfect photo op… Taylor bent down to her bag to grab the camera as Chelsie waited ready for the shutter to snap on the camera. Instead, Taylor emerged from the bag with not a camera snapping memories but a little black box, snapping open, creating its own unique forever memory. Taylor fell to one knee, the box slowly opening, & Chelsie’s face broke into the biggest smile as Taylor’s burst into excited laughter. This was not going to be a getaway they would soon forget.
I had the time of my life capturing this proposal for these two lovebirds. Taylor & Chelsie met years ago in a bar where Chelsie was working in Washington. Taylor was there with friends and from the instant, Chelsie saw her, she could not look away. No matter what she did, she couldn’t shake the thought of this gorgeous blonde from her mind. The rest is history as they say & it was such a pleasure helping to document these two taking the next step forward in their relationship. A big congratulations again Taylor & Chelsie!!
Here are a few of my curated favourites from their Kitsilano Beach engagement.
