Curtis and Abby’s Rathtrevor Beach Proposal ~ Surprise Proposal Captured!

Rathtrevor Beach Engagement Photos ~ Parksville Wedding Photographer

Proposing to his Girlfriend at Rathtrevor Beach

Curtis had messaged me a few months back requesting me to take photos of him as he proposed to his girlfriend Abby at Rathtrevor Beach. I was absolutely in! He wanted this to be a total surprise for Abby, and definitely wanted to ask the big question at this meaningful location. These two live on the mainland, and the date had to be switched a couple of times due to Abby’s changing work schedule. But alas, on October 24th, 2021, we met up on a windy, stormy day at Rathtrevor Beach. I was wearing a pink rain jacket and pompom toque- I wanted Curtis to identify me. I arrived at the beach ahead of time to ensure I was in location, and pretended to take photos of the birds with my zoom lens on. I saw them approaching and continued to pretend to take photos as I circled my way into the perfect position. I didn’t want Abby to see me directly taking photos of them, so I angled slightly behind her. When it came down to the moment, I’m sure Abby didn’t see anything except her hunny down on his knee asking her to marry him. ♥ After a few minutes of the initial question, Curtis then pointed to me and told her he had hired a photographer. She was once again very surprised and out of words! I then made my way over to them and photographed their incredibly bubbly energy to remember this moment.

Congratulations you two, and thank you so much for trusting me to capture your special proposal.
