First off we wanted to start off our first post of 2015 by wishing you all a Happy New Year! Since the holidays, we couldn’t help but notice the number of newly engaged couples as 2015 approached. Inspired, we wanted to share Elaine and Duane’s beautiful proposal which we had the pleasure of documenting back in October.
Elaine and Duane are from Edmonton Alberta, and were visiting Vancouver in late October where they ended up leaving as an engaged couple! Wanting the milestone documented, Duane surprised Elaine with a couple’s photo shoot in Granville Island. They had always talked about having shoots in different places they travel, so Elaine thought this was a cute gift from Duane. What Elaine didn’t know was that Duane had been planning a surprise engagement proposal for months and had Vivid Moments document the even which took place during the shoot. Duane took Elaine to a hidden area place near the water’s edge where he said he’d been geocaching before. He wanted to show her what he had hidden under some rocks, and to her delightful surprise he took out a jar of candy rings with a note in it. As Elaine started to read the note, Duane got down on one knee, revealed the real ring from his pocket, and the rest was a teary blur 🙂 Of course Elaine said yes!
On a side note, we were especially looking forward to documenting the happy event because Elaine herself is an award winning photographer whose work inspired us for many years!
If you yourself became recently engaged, we want to wish you a huge congratulations!! If you’re in love with the way we capture stories and are willing to share yours, feel free to drop us a line and say hello! May 2015 be on of the happiest and most fulfilling years of your life!!
