For some people it is Paris that brings pronouncements of love and commitment, for others it is on an island in Antarctica overlooking a glacier bay with a colony of penguins nesting nearby! In the words of Brendan, “Penguins travel all over to find the perfect pebbles for their nest to gain approval from their potential life partner…being down here surrounded by these loyal creatures I presented a rock in hope that Brittany would say yes and in turn share the exact same initials together…” And she said yes with plenty of tears, laughter, and jumping!!! Brendan and Brittany hail from Australia, and were on this cruise to Antarctica to cross off their 7th continent together. They have been officially dating for 2 years and friends for years before then. When asked earlier in the week if they were married, Brittany replied, “We aren’t married yet, but I hope he chooses me!” And little did she know that Brendan was secretly planning this amazing proposal with the Silverseas Expedition staff all along! I happened to be in the right place/right time and witnessed/photographed this amazing proposal! Who knew that my vacation to Antarctica would allow me to photograph such an epic proposal?! I was so happy to be there and to take these pictures for Brendan and Brittany! These two are serious couple goals after getting engaged in Antarctica! They redefine traveling to the end of the world to show someone that you love them! And to top it all off, we all went kayaking later that afternoon in the most beautiful and pristine conditions. What a way to celebrate being newly engaged! Congratulations to Brendan and Brittany and congrats on having the most epic engagement story ever!
