Photographing this surprise proposal in an Ottawa winter wonderland was sooo much fun!! We had just had one of our last substantial snowfall, it looked like Narnia, and it wasn’t twenty below. It doesn’t get much better than that for winter photos in Ottawa!
Eugene bought a gift certificate for a couples photo session for Christine for Christmas, and he gave it to her along with a picnic set to use for their session. Secretly he also had a custom dog tag made for their sweet pup Chewie, and his plan during their couples session was to surprise Christine with a fancy new collar for Chewie.
When the day arrived we were all so excited about the fresh blanket of snow. We met at a beautiful park area and started like a regular couples session. Not long after we started, Eugene said “Oh, I have a special collar for Chewie for our shoot” and asked Christine to close her eyes. He put the collar on Chewie with the tag that said “will you marry my daddy”. And Christine’s reactions says it all!!
Eugene & Christine soaked in the moment, and celebrated with champagne and rose petals. We wandered around the park and took a few more photos to mark their surprise proposal and engagement.
It’s so much fun to capture these moments!
