I can’t fully express how excited I was when I got the phone call from Leo asking me if I would be available to document him proposing to his girlfriend of four and a half years. In my head I was screaming ‘HECK YESSSSS’, but in an effort to remain professional I calmly replied ‘I would love to’.

Next to weddings, engagement sessions are my absolute favourite session to capture. But to capture the exact moment in a couple’s relationship when their status changes from ‘boyfriend and girlfriend’ to ‘fiance and fiancee’ was truly a session that can’t be beat! It is one of the sweetest most intimate moments in your lives and to be able to capture that for you to cherish for a life time, well lets just say I was definitely all love in my eyes!

Leo did it right! Residing in the US, he swept away his little lady for a little getaway to Niagara Falls, Ont. and treated her to beautiful dinners, fun tourist attractions, a wine tour and definitely put the icing on the cake with gifting Kirsty the most beautiful promise. All before he is to depart on another mission for the US Marine, where he will be gone for 7 months.

Now tell me you aren’t feeling a little pull on your heart strings.


Thanks again Leo, for having me be apart of this beautiful moment. Enjoy some sneak peeks of their love.

Happy wedding planning!
