Friends + blind date = rustic engagement session

On one fine afternoon, a blind date was set to happen.  While planning, both decided to bring a friend along just in case…things got a little weird.  Well you guessed it, both friends came along and it was love at first sight…for the friends that is!

Maria & Steffen have been inseparable from that moment on.

We choose to capture their rustic engagement session at the Estuary in Squamish where Maria grew up.  There was gorgeous mid afternoon light, it was the perfect way for us to relax, get to know each other and allow an otherwise shy couple to just be themselves.

A special thank you to Steffen for trusting me that no bears, spiders or anything crawling would come close to him.  This city boy was completely out of his element but he did so good, oh what we wouldn’t do to make our fiancé happy!

If you are wondering where did Steffen find Maria’s gorgeous ring, you should know that it helps that Maria’s father is a designer and jeweller.  Needless to say, this has been in the works for quite some time.

I can hardly wait for these two to get married at the Queen Elizabeth Park this summer, it will be grand.
