Unbeknownst to Elisse, Parker had been planning a surprise engagement photography session for some time. He first contacted me in January to set the date. They came to Nelson to snowboard for a few days in March, and then he treated her to spa day–during which he met me to go over the final details.
As they walked toward me on the beach, Parker let Elisse know he had planned a surprise photo session. Admirably prepared, Elisse pulled some lipstick from her purse and went with it…. And she remained unaware of what was about to happen until he reached for his pocket.
Once the shock wore off, Elisse explained how long she’d been waiting for that moment. And I was so happy to be able to capture it for them. Nice work, Parker!
