Fall is one of those times of year where we love getting out into the crisp cool air, the warmth of the sun and the gorgeous colours that nature shows off. Mirette and Mark were the winners of our Engagement Session Contest and we couldn’t have had a more wonderful day for their Beautiful Assiniboine Forest Engagement Session.
Mother Nature tried to get us down on two previous occasions. With all the rain we were having, it almost looked like we wouldn’t get a beautiful warm fall.
Mirette and Mark met at University, and we were lucky that they had an afternoon off from their classes to come explore the Assiniboine Forest with us! The colours were absolutely perfect and these two were so happy and in love.
We had such a wonderful afternoon getting to know them more, and fell in love with Mark’s proposal story! He created a scavenger hunt for Mirette, taking her to all of their favourite places. Each clue was a picture of a moment they had shared together. When she reached the final destination, he had created wooden gallery where he had displayed all of their pictures! So incredibly romantic!
We were so glad we had waited a few days as it was a picture-perfect fall day! It was so fun to wander through the trails of the forest. Being a photographer is hard when you have so much beauty around you and two people so in love! We could have kept taking pictures all day!
Mirette and Mark, thank you so much for sharing your love story with us!
