I am a total romantic at heart. I’m the kind of romantic who appreciates that actions speak louder than words, that it’s the thought that counts and I absolutely, positively love surprises (except when I know a surprise is coming, I can’t stand the waiting game!). It’s the romantic side of me that is always curious about how our couples met and especially how the groom proposed. Call me girly.
So, when we met with Chantel and Kurt a few months back and learned that they were planning their wedding but weren’t yet engaged – we were thrown for a bit of a loop. In today’s crazy world, and in Calgary especially, it makes sense to start planning your wedding as early as possible. In this case, that’s exactly what Chantel and Kurt were doing.
A few days after Chantel and Kurt booked us for their 2013 Bragg Creek wedding, we received an email from Kurt letting us in on his proposal plan. The ring was being designed. He had a weekend in Banff booked already. Chantel had no idea. When Kurt asked us to photograph the two of them the morning after he proposed, we were so totally excited. We were going to be part of the surprise!
We had a great afternoon of engagement photography with these two, and their gorgeous Husky, Duke (a big thank you goes out to our friend Ray, who helped us with dog duty while we were shooting!). Thanks Kurt, for letting us in on your plans and thanks to the both of you for having us be part of such an incredible weekend.
Xoxo Erin (the hopeless romantic) and Andrew
