You might say their love was deeper than any ocean. Two kindred spirits, bound by a passion that reached the depths of the sea. So naturally, it seemed entirely fitting to capture their story on the beach, while the waves crashed on the shore, like their souls colliding. But what Emily didn’t know was that their souls, although already connected, were about to take a leap into a new chapter with four simple words. With an energy that could be felt for miles, Emily and Tyler took to the outdoors to share their love with Rozalind; a private moment that any person would feel privileged to take part in. Emily had longed to have beautiful photographs of her and Tyler to capture their own little fairytale. Especially considering that they spend much of their time apart; Emily living in New York City attending school to complete her Bachelors of Science, while Tyler resides in Vancouver working for a steel company. Tyler had went to Rozalind to tell her that he planned on proposing to Emily during this photoshoot, but like a proper gentleman, knew to wait until the very end, as to not ruin her makeup when she cried. So through the forest Rozalind followed, carrying the most beautiful secret and capturing pictures of the moments leading up to its undoing. The forecast had called for rain, but it held off, and by the time the couple reached the beach, the clouds made for the perfect light. It not only highlighted every last stitch on Emily’s hand-sewn dress, but also the look on her face as Tyler got down on one knee. Girls dream of this day from a young age and this was no exception. A dream coming true. He asked, and she instantly put both of her hands over her heart, as if subconsciously saying that it was already his entirely. And with the one word answer that guys wait with bated breath to hear, Tyler and Emily’s novel began another chapter. Perhaps they didn’t know that when they met at a Christmas party, they would wind up on a beach on a cloudy day starting a life together. But that is how all great love stories begin; with something as mysterious as the ocean, yet as certain as the tide coming in.
