Andrew and Stephanie drove all the way from Spokane, WA for their engagement photos at Pitt Lake BC! They drove over 18 hours in ONE weekend! I was BLOWN away and so excited to meet them!! I had slowly fallen in love with Stephanie over email the few months before as we talked about their elopement wedding on the Sunshine Coast next September. I knew she was my kind of girl when she asked about clothing options and then ended her email with red or white? I gave her some slightly confused answer about the pros and cons of red and white clothing in engagement sessions and she replied back, “Nooooo red or white WINE!” haha how did I of all people miss that?! Despite my silliness, she surprised me with a wine tote and a bottle of AMAZINGLY delicious wine after their photos :) It was meant to be!
As soon as they both got out of the car, I knew we were a great fit! Stephanie is TALLLLL! And she has the biggest smile on her face constantly! She is so easy to talk to and one of those people that seems so genuinely happy you can’t help but be happier around her. I can see where she gets it from too. Her Mom came along as chauffeur for the photos and I loved her just as much as Stephanie! They are both amazingly beautiful women inside and out!
Andrew is just as lovable and just as easy to talk to! He is a veteran of the US Military, and we got a few ring photos of Stephanie’s engagement ring leaning against the bracelet/arm band (not sure of the manly term) that he left for her when he went away.
With Andrew being American, and Stephanie being Canadian, they wanted to incorporate some part of their countries into the photos, so they decided on massive flags! I LOVED it!! They ended up being some of my favourite photos of the two of them!!
Andrew and Stephanie! I am unbelievably grateful and SO excited that you chose me to be a part of your engagement and wedding!! I LOVED getting to know you guys better and can’t believe I have to wait until September to see you both again!
