Ryan and Whittney’s engagement session was SO MUCH FUN. I met them a few years ago at a wedding I photographed in Mexico so we got to spend the week getting to know them!!
When Whittney emailed me her ideas for their engagement photos in Kelowna I was SO EXCITED! Spot one was to hike up to their favourite view point in Kelowna. They brought their dog and it was so fun! The views were stunning!!! The next few spots were incredible! Ryan is a helicopter pilot for Valhalla Helicopters so he took us up to some of their favourite landing spots in the area! It was INCREDIBLE!!! We landed on the top of Little White! After years of skiing at Big White I had no idea there was a Little White! We also landed on this tiny island on the lake and had the entire place to ourselves!! I learned so much about helicopters and loved getting to spend so much time with these two!! All day adventure engagement sessions are seriously the best!
Ryan brought his hockey jerseys for him and Whittney to wear and whenever I see someone cheering for someone other than a Canadian team, I ALWAYS ask why. (Especially if it’s not Montreal ;) “Why Minnesota?!” And Ryan told me the best story EVER!
Back when the Canucks made it to the Stanley Cup finals, him and a friend were watching the game at the bar. The Canucks lost and in their rage, they swore they’d never cheer for them again. On the way out, they noticed one of those sticker machines where you put in a dollar and it spits out a sticker from one of the NHL teams. They told each other, lets put in a dollar and whichever team comes out, that’s the team we each cheer for during the next season. Ryan got Minnesota, and his friend got Boston. They committed and their teams stuck. Seriously my most favourite story ever!!
Ryan and Whittney, thank you SO MUCH for such a great day!!! I loved getting to explore Kelowna in a way I never had before! It was gorgeous!!
