A collection of worldwide LGBTQ+ engagement stories.
We’re both from Manitoba, Canada. We met about two years ago and we’ve been glued at the hip ever since. We spend our time browsing used book-stores, road tripping to concerts, camping, sipping sangria and spending lazy Sundays at home with our guinea pigs and our cat.
Sierra found the perfect ring for Megan and started brainstorming how she wanted to propose.She wanted me to photograph it, but the problem with that was that Megan knows me and we were worried if she saw me hiding in a coffee shop or something, it would give it away. That led to us planning this elaborate styled shoot.
After a romantic, personal proposal that happened one afternoon spontaneously, Gabby and Lila chose to have an engagement shoot that was just as personal; at their own home, together with their cat.
Their love story started when they both swiped right, numerous times. It took seven months of deleting and reinstalling the app, talking on and off before they finally went on their first date. Sydney says it’s because Ashley was intimidating and she was a little afraid of all the tattoos (and the fact that she’s a Slytherin!) but Ashley won her over and it wasn’t long before the two became inseparable. They share their engagement story with us.
For some, a proposal is extravagant, for others, it happens in a spur of the moment when you’re out at dinner and the views of your favourite person and the Sydney Harbour Bridge are just the right amount of magic to pop the question. Amy and Nicole’s engagement wasn’t planned but it was perfect.
For some it’s all about the diamond engagement ring, for others, it’s a mutual decision to take the next step in their lives together. We sat down with Alison and Beth, two women wildly in love, about their relationship and why a big emphasis on a proposal just wasn’t them.
Adventurous couple, Petra and Shari knew they were heading down to the beach for a few photographs to help expand photographer, Talitha Crawford’s portfolio – what Petra didn’t know was that Shari was planning to ask her ‘will you marry me?’ in a surprise proposal.
