It was just before the long and cold winter, mid-November-something to be precise. Quite possibly on a Tuesday.

Ashley and Dave and I had initially planned to meet and do their engagement session at Schooner Cove outside of Tofino, however we learned that morning access was closed, and opted to do the engagement photos at Tonquin Beach instead. Looking back, it should have been Plan A because this beach did not disappoint!

Excellent sand to rock ratio, and an abundance of grotto-like hidey holes. If I were rating Tonquin Beach as an engagement shoot location, or even in general, I would give it five stars.

What better way to spend a break in a rainy week than exploring the beaches of Tofino BC?
