Mike and Heather are just about one of the cutest couples I’ve ever met!!
They met online after her brother had encouraged her to put herself out there! He gave her the best advice, “Heather, it’s not weird. Women wait in life. They wait to get asked out, they wait to get married and they wait to have kids. It’s crap!” So she went home and made a profile. A week later, Mike reached out to her!! He was drawn in by all her running photos! They went on a date a few days later, at the restaurant her brother worked at, so if things weren’t good, she had a back door to sneak out of haha.
Over dinner Mike mentioned he had never ran in a race before. On the spot they signed up for a race together, which meant they had to hang out for the next 6 weeks to train together! As Heather says, the rest is history. They’ve been travelling, cooking, baking and drinking together ever since!
For her 3oth birthday, they planned a trip to San Diego and Disneyland with a group of friends. On their last night of the trip, they went for a walk along the beach and he pulled out a ring and proposed!! The best part?! The ring had been hidden in one of his socks in their COMMUNAL backpack. She’d been carrying around her own engagement ring for the past two weeks!
These two love to workout together, Heather is a fellow weight lifter and I love how adventurous and warmhearted they are! They’re both quick to laugh and they light up around each other!!
We met for their engagement photos at Lighthouse Park for the most stunning sunset!! We found this incredible spot that fortunately had no one else around….well until we noticed the almost nude model having seductive photos done a few rocks down! Thank goodness for photoshop on a few of these photos!! ;)
We had a blast exploring around the rocks and taking in the sunset!! I had the best time getting to know them both better and hearing their story!! I can’t wait for their wedding in Calgary!!! 46 days and counting!!! :)
