I drove down to Calgary to shoot Stacey + Garrett’s Confederation Park Engagement session. These two had met online like a lot of couples I have worked with in the past. The unique thing about their love story is that they met on their first online date ever. They planned on meeting for the first time at a restaurant in Calgary to get to know each other. Garrett was so nervous about meeting Stacey that he went to the restaurant three hours earlier then when they planned on meeting up! How sweet!
Garrett had planned on proposing to Stacey while they took a weekend trip to Banff. It was originally a trip they were taking together to celebrate Stacey’s birthday but Garrett didn’t want to propose on her actual birthday. He waited till the day after her birthday to pop the question. Which he did on the balcony of their hotel room! I seriously love their story!
I had never been Confederation Park in Calgary when Stacey and Garrett mentioned it for their engagement photos. I of course went to google to check out some photos of the park. I realized while looking why they would have picked this gorgeous park out! The river flows through the park and has so many stunning wooden bridges through it. Of course a ton of nature and trees too…which I love!
These two were so amazing and planned on two outfits for their engagement session. I love when couples plan that because it gives them a variety of photos with different looks too. I had a great time walking around the park with them and hearing about their upcoming wedding in August. They totally killed it and posed themselves perfectly every time. Plus they have an amazing connection together and that is obvious to everyone around them. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding and I might have to bring a step stool because I hear the groomsmen are all quite tall 🙂
Now onto what your dying to see and that’s the photos from their Confederation Park Engagement Session!
