I am excited because tomorrow I will be driving out to Christina Lake to photograph this wonderful couple’s wedding! Connor lived at Christina Lake and Natalee grew up spending her summers there. Her campsite was only a 2 minute walk away from Connor’s house. They met once when Natalee was working at the local ice cream shop there, but they officially met through friends at a hangout spot one weekend. Two months after that meeting, they began dating.
When asked the question “What do you love most about your fiance?” Connor said; “I love the way that she would do anything for anyone, how you know when she is nervous because she will ramble uncontrollably and I can’t help but sit there and smile. I also love the way she finger dances, and the fact the no matter how bad of a day I have had, she always knows exactly what to say to make everything better.” So sweet!
Natalee said this about Connor; “Saying I love Connor is an understatement. The things I personally love most are; 1. Connor is the most generous person have ever met, he would honestly give his shirt off his back for a stranger in need. 2. Connor can make me laugh in the worst times. 3. The fact that Connor literally shows me up on the dance floor. 4. I can completely be myself with him.” Adorable
On Monday, February 17, 2014 Connor proposed to Natalee and this is how it went down according to Natalee; “I returned home from writing an exam at school and as I entered I noticed a path of rose petals that lead into our living room with champagne, a black box, and candles waiting. However Connor was no where to be found. So I searched the house for him, kind of thinking that this was a belated birthday/valentines day surprise. Because I couldn’t find Connor, I returned to the decorate table and he jumped out from under it scaring me. He then got really cute and said some really nice things, and then asked the easiest questions I have ever been asked. Obviously I said YES!”
We did their Delta engagement session almost exactly a year ago now on a beautiful, sunny August day. Because Natalee and Connor spent a lot of summers together, it was important that their engagement session be in the summer as well. Connor loves trucks and Natalee thought it would be a great idea if we could get a nice, old truck to take photos with. I made it my mission to find such a truck! It wasn’t too easy, but one day as I walking down Main Street with a friend, I saw this beautiful blue 1957 Chevy truck parked on the street, so I left a note on the windshield in hopes that the owner would be willing to let us rent it. Sure enough he was! We got the truck, an awesome couple, and a beautiful sunny day – it was pretty perfect. Enjoy the photos!
They are so cute!
As the sun was going down we made our way to the dock and this gorgeous light appeared through the trees, I had to take advantage of it.
We ended on a perfect sunset! Thanks so much Connor and Natalee, I am so excited for your wedding this weekend!!
Thank you to Sam for assisting me on this session!
