Photographer: Marcucci Photography + Nicole Alex Photography

Session: Proposal

Location: Bon Echo Provincial Park, Ontario

From the Photographer:

“The pilot pulled the plane up to the beach, and Deanne got to catch her first glimpse of Dylan. With the softest, ‘What are you doing here?’ she was out of the plane and right into Dylan’s arms. After a short and quiet chat, Dylan dropped his knee down into the sand and asked Deanne to marry him! Nicole and I were both shaking and had the biggest smiles going on behind our cameras… The night truly couldn’t have been any better… The sky opened up to the most incredible orange and pink sunset, radiating off of the ever-popular Bon Echo cliffs. What an epic day, and we were so grateful to be a part of it.”


“Dylan went to such incredible lengths to ensure Deanne didn’t have any idea about the proposal, [even going so far as] to create a mock up ‘contest’ that Deanne would eventually win! The contest was for a float plane tour of Muskoka, and Dylan excitingly sent the link – [that] he created – to Deanne and told her she should enter. They both love to adventure, hike, and travel, and being up in Ontario’s Cottage Country is one of their favorite spaces to explore.”

“Little did Deanne know that Dylan had been working hard behind the scenes, planning out every little moment… Bon Echo Provincial Park is located in Northern Ontario and is one of the most beautiful stretch of lakes in Ontario’s Cottage Country… Dylan calmly filled the foggy beach at Mazinaw Lake with the glow of candles and anxiously awaited her arrival… [We] started to hear the float plane propellers in the distance, and as it came into view, Dylan had the biggest smile on his face…”
