Sam thought I was just flying out to Canada to do couples photos with her and Ryan…she had NO CLUE that Ryan was about to surprise her with a Banff Canada proposal!!!! THIS TRIP WAS SO FREAKING EPIC!!!!! First off, the four of us got along perfectly which made it even more fun because it was like we were on a trip with our friends (heck yeah). But this trip was planned sooooo last minute because we were originally supposed to go to Iceland and then our flights got cancelled so I contacted Ryan to ask him what he wanted to do about the proposal and next thing I know, I am going to CANADA!!!!
Sam had absolutely no clue that Ryan was going to propose which made this even more amazing. She was so caught off guard because we were going from place to place just photographing the two of them while exploring Canada together. We also stayed in a cabin together at Lake Louise so it made it seem way more like a trip with just friends.
Midway through the day, we found this gorgeous backdrop spot and I looked at Ryan and the two of us knew exactly at that moment that we found the proposal spot and that was where we ended up going right before sunset! The backdrop was beautiful (unlike anything I had ever seen before). The most picture perfect place for a proposal! Right before he got down on one knee, I got the shakes (like always). I always get so nervous right before proposals but it went perfectly and she was so surprised!
Truly, this trip was so incredible and I connected with these two SOOOOOOO easily! AND NOW I GET TO PHOTOGRAPH THEIR WEDDING!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH
I seriously cannot wait!!! I was so honored to be apart of this huge milestone in their lives and now I get to follow their love story and be apart of the biggest day of their lives (how cool).
You guys can read more about their proposal story HERE!!!!!! (How He Asked)
“Nikki and her husband flew to Canada to meet up with me and my now fiancé and we all vacationed together! I thought we booked just an innocent photoshoot to get some nice pictures of us, but it was actually a planned proposal that her and my boyfriend were planning for basically 6 months!! From the moment I met Nikki, she was outgoing, charismatic, and so sweet. It was my first time doing a professional photoshoot so I was a bit nervous. But she made us feel like we were just having fun, she directed us on what to do and she captured just the most amazing photos! Our photoshoot happened on Saturday, we got sneak peaks that night and we got more than 200 photos just a couple of days later! OH, and she wasn’t feeling good and she still got all of it done! She takes so much pride in her work and you can tell how much she loves what she does. I can’t wait to have her photograph our wedding now!” – Sam + Ryan
