Point Defiance Elopement Photographer
Almida and John got engaged on a trip to vietnam last year! They were there visiting family for the first week, and Almida was getting to meet all of John's extended family for the first time! Then, the second week that they were there, Almida and John got on a bus and drove to a city about 4 hours away for some time alone to enjoy the country together. They arrived at their aribnb after traveling all day, and went to check out the rooftop pool. Almida was hot and tired for the long drive and was eager to see the view from the top of the building. After they got up there, they looked at the skyline, and then Almida went to turn to go back down to their room when John stopped her. "Wait a sec," he said. When she paused, he said "well, thisss isss awkward...." (he explained that he is an awkward person, and that this is normal) "But I was wondering if you wanted to get married?" at which point he dropped to one knee and help up the ring box to her. She obviously said yes, and they laughed when they told me about their proposal story which was equal parts cute and awkward.
We were just walking by the shore, when ALL OF A SUDDEN a monster leaped out of the water and jumped into the air! I literally dropped my camera and screamed. I’ve rarely seen sea lions, and especially not at this beach and it was such a surprise to get to see one! Almida said that she thought that it was the loch ness monster when she saw the picture!
