Darrion & Emma | Dreamy Winter Engagement Session

Darrion and Emma have the perfect story… it almost seems unreal because it’s one of those sweet stories that you hear and see in the movies!  In Grade 9, Emma was the new girl at school. Her smile brightened the room and Darrion couldn’t help but notice how beautiful she was. They remained friends for years, but it wasn’t until High School, they connected more when they had some classes together. That’s when these two started dating and the rest was history! 

Fast forward to many years later, Darrion finally decided it was time to pop the question.  Originally, he was planning to propose to her on a trip, but then those plans got canceled due to covid. He knew he still had to propose to her, so he came up with a creative idea to lay a picnic set in their own home. They had a good time enjoying their home picnic, together.  Since Darrion is such a thoughtful guy, Emma was clueless on what was to come. Then before she knew it, Darrion went down on one knee, asking him to marry her.  Shocked, Emma said “are you serious!?”.   It was the perfect proposal, just like you see in the movies!  Of course, she said yes to marrying her best friend!!

Their engagement session was supposed to happen over a month ago, when we had very cold weather, for a whole week. Thankfully, we rescheduled their engagement session to a new date, in hopes it would be a lot warmer by then, and it was!!! The rescheduled date was absolute perfection!  Warm sunny glow, no wind and an amazing couple so full of love! They even included their cute dog, Meeko, too!  There was just enough snow for the most scenic winter photos, overlooking a bridge in the distance and the magical South Bear Creek, here in Grande Prairie.

Darrion & Emma, I had such a blast capturing your winter engagement photos!  I can already tell how spectacular your wedding will be and cannot wait to capture your happy memories but most importantly, I can’t wait to capture the story of your big day!  You two are beautiful inside and out and I hope you love seeing yourselves through my lens as much as I loved capturing it!
