Beach Proposal Session: Mckenzie & Tori
Mckenzie and Tori met at a monthly queer women’s dance party in Washington, DC in March 2012. Tori is a bass player and Mckenzie is a singer, so they connected over music and had an amazing time playing together in a rock band for the next year and a half before finally starting to date.
They spent a lovely day having lunch at one of the best taco places in town, shopping around the Mission District and relaxing in the sun at Dolores Park. Later that evening, they headed to dinner via Golden Gate Park and ended up at Ocean Beach. That was when Tori knew something was up. They walked around on the beach collecting rocks and shells for a bit while they both tried not to act super-nervous.
Their photographer, Danielle, was on the beach catching candids and Tori had no idea she was there. Danielle’s cue to know that Mckenzie was about to propose was when they compared their seashell findings, but there were basically no shells on the beach that day! Tori thought it was pretty weird that Mckenzie was so insistent that they find shells, but she was full of hopeful anticipation, so she just went with it and channeled her nerves and excitement into the task. Mckenzie was very grateful.
