When Joshua reached out to me in the spring about documenting his proposal neither of us had any idea the hurdles the pandemic would have on his plans. He had planned to propose in the summer, but with covid putting a damper on things he decided to wait for a more ideal time. For months he kept his proposal a secret and planned a surprise proposal during their getaway at Elora Mill Hotel and Spa. The team at the hotel did a great job at setting up his proposal on the balcony while Joshua kept Puja distracted.
I always get a little nervous before a proposal. There is so much excitement and anticipation in the air. I hid behind a planter as Joshua and Puja walked in. She was so surprised! The sound of the water and the backdrop of the Elora gorge really made Joshua’s proposal at Elora Mill Hotel special and unique.
After Joshua proposed I took them for engagement photos at Elora Mills hotel and the town of Elora. It was the first snowfall and the whole down was covered in a light blanket of snow. I love the way the snow quiets a city and makes it clean with fluffy, white snow. It signals the beginning of a new season or in Puja & Joshua’s lives a new chapter.
