Bow River engagement photos

Brrrrr!  Brisk mornings have me yearning for summer evenings, how about you?  These Bow River engagement photos are just the ticket on a morning like this.  For their engagement session, I met these two at Eau Claire Market and we wandered around Prince’s Island taking photos and getting to know one another.  I asked the bride to share a bit about their love story…

We met 6 years ago at University.  The first thing they tell you when you move into undergraduate residence is not to have a romantic relationship with someone on your floor; if things go badly it can make living there difficult. Needless to say, both of us have difficulty listening to the advice of others and within two weeks of school starting we were officially dating. I remember calling my Mom one day and saying ‘I know this sounds dumb, but I think I met the love of my life’. On our first date in early September we grabbed lunch and sat in the quad surrounded by the bustle of students. It was a beautiful, sunny fall day – simplicity at its best!

More from the bride…

One of the best things about him is his knack for doing thoughtful things when you least expect them. He proposed last September in the same spot where we had our first lunch date – in the quad, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We celebrated with ordering take-out from our favourite Vietnamese place in Edmonton and calling our friends and family.
We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other in this crazy world. With mutual loves for sarcasm, animals, racket sports, travelling and the Toronto Raptors, our home is filled with continuous laughter, terrible jokes and adventures that we hope, will keep us falling in love with each other over the many married years to come.


This session has me giddy with excitement for their Canmore wedding at Silvertip Resort with Lynn Fletcher Weddings
