Proposal Story: Steven + Agnes

Proposal Story: Steven + Agnes

Steven had the perfect proposal in mind and he knew he wanted the moment captured. He asked around for photographers, and I helped get him in touch with Raymond Chou of Vivid Moments Photographers, who also happens to be a Vancity Vendor. Raymond was so happy to be a part of such a special moment… here’s how it went down, in his own words…

“I had the pleasure of photographing a surprise proposal on the stage of the beautiful Chan Centre at UBC. Steven had reached out to me about a month ago telling me about his plan to propose to Agnes. The reason he chose the Chan Centre is because Agnes worked there for 14 years, thus it has a special place in her heart.

Vivid Moments Photographers On the day of the proposal, Steven and Agnes went to the Chan Centre to see a show. After the show was over, Steven told Agnes that he ‘accidentally’ left one of his credit cards behind, providing the excuse to return to the Chan Centre when nobody was around. Steven had asked Nada the event coordinator, a friend of Agnes’ who was in on the surprise, to allow them permission to walk on the stage. While all this was  happening, I was nervously hiding backstage as I finally watched Steven and Agnes walk onto the center stage. I couldn’t hear what the two were saying, but when I saw him get down on one knee I knew it was showtime. I ran out with my camera, shutter blazing, and documented this precious milestone between Steven and Agnes.

Of course Agnes said yes! And she was as happy as she was surprised. We stuck around for a while to take some more photos, and the two exited the building as a newly engaged couple.” ~ Raymond ChouVivid Moments Photographers

What a sweet moment and such a great story! Huge congratulations to Steven and Agnes! She’s a lucky girl to have a guy as thoughtful and romantic as him. Enjoy the rest of the photos… thank you Raymond for sharing these amazing moments with us.
