The Mayotte’s Engagement Session at University of Alberta, Edmonton
Engagement , September 21, 2017
An Engineer & A Vet Walked into Bar…And Star Wars!
The Engagement Ring and How They Met
Nicole & Brodie look like two peas in a pod, birds of a feather, cast off the same mold…. you get the idea? This couple met in a dingy old bar 4 years ago. They started talking online where they started “Catching Feelings” (many more pop culture references coming) and decided they needed to meet to make sure neither one of them was an alien dressed like a perfect human. Well, turns out none of them was so now they are getting married this week.
They arrived at the bar and had a beer each. They ended up leaving when the bar closed because the conversation wouldn’t stop! As they say, the rest is history. These two beautiful humans will be standing on the alter this weekend to tie their knots and make their vows to each other. They are going to immortalize their love for each other and become a family together (did i mentioned they have a beautiful dog together named Jack!)
Brodie went down on one knee on 15th Feb 2016. They had just prepared a greek meal together and were having a wonderful date night. They went out on their deck when Brodie asked Nicole to be his life partner. She said yes! Now they are getting married in less than 4 days and I am so excited to photograph their wedding!!
For their engagement session, Puneet Ramirez did an amazing job of the hair and makeup! All of our wedding packages come with an engagement session and complimentary hair & makeup. This allows our clients to feel comfortable being in front of the camera on their wedding day.
The Engagement Session at University of Alberta, Edmonton
When you think about Edmonton, a couple of things come up immediately: Oilers (of course!), Trucks, Hippies & University of Alberta. So we decided why not do the engagement session at one of the coolest places within the city? So that is exactly what we did. We went to the old Arts Building at the University of Alberta around Sunset to create some epic imagery for the couple that you will get to see below!
We actually went to a second location, Dove Creek Park, after completing our session at the University of Alberta. The dove creek park has a collection of bridges and ravines that just make it the perfect location for sunset photos. Here we met Jack, a happy labrador puppy who is by far the cutest member of the family. We took some cute pictures of three together!
Near the end of the session, we used a lightsaber to create some of the most epic engagement photos I have ever taken in my life! You should definitely check them out!
I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph engagement photos and we are really looking forward to joining them on their wedding day.
