Romantic Winter Engagement Session in Calgary
As a Calgary wedding photographer, I am privileged to capture so many beautiful engagements; I am so excited to share this beautiful, romantic winter engagement session with you all! Caroline and Jordan are amazing. When we met for coffee I knew we would click instantly. Jordan is hilarious and outgoing – which compliments Caroline’s beautiful, lovely personality so well. They can literally just look into each other’s eyes and giggle for no reason! During our session they made my job incredibly easy since they were so focused on each other and the moment. These two just beam with love. I couldn’t be more excited to have the pleasure of capturing their wedding next year! Read more below from Caroline!
Our love story started like so many others in the 21st Century… thanks to the Internet! After a quick swipe to the right on Tinder, Jordan and I started chatting through the app. The very next day we met for a quick coffee downtown where we spent more time laughing than actually talking. We knew we had something special right from the beginning and the following 16 months validated that we were destined to be adventure partners for life! The ultimate test was trekking 150 kilometers in Patagonia together. After surviving a week of carrying heavy backpacks, eating unpleasant dehydrated food, no showers, and sharing the tinniest tent, we knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together, but agreed that we would purchase a slightly larger tent!
Jordan had planned a surprise weekend trip to the mountains for my birthday. When we were about to leave, he mentioned that he was not driving, which was confusing, and shortly after a limo pulled up in front of the house which was even more baffling. We ended up at the airport and boarded a plane to Vancouver Island!
The next day Jordan had planned for us to hike the East Sooke Coast Trail which is a 20 kilometer round-trip hike along the rugged coastline. After 4 hours of hiking we realized that we wouldn’t have time to complete the entire circuit, so we agreed to turn around sooner than planned. We took a short break at this beautiful look-out location. As I was setting up the camera for a picture, I turned around to see Jordan down on one knee. I honestly don’t remember what he said (neither does he), but I managed to say yes through all the tears!
