I met up with Christina and Peter on July 4th for a fun summer engagement session in Fernie.
These two met in January of 2013 when they were both working for Water Survey Canada/Environment Canada in Calgary. Over the course of a 2-week group work training session in Yellowknife, they got to know each other a little better, and Christina was drawn to Peter’s sense of humour. Peter was impressed by how easy it was to talk to her and how much they had in common. Before long, they started dating, and of course, it all fell into place after that.
Then, in the fall of 2016, they decided they wanted to be married. It was a mutual decision, made over time as they considered how much they wanted to be together. They also knew they wanted to be married in the mountains surrounded by close family and friends. After all, since both of them are from Eastern Canada, they just can’t get enough of the mountains. They love to hike, ski, bike, and spend their time having adventures and traveling together.
A Fernie Engagement Session
The day of their engagement session was a beautiful summer day in the mountains. Christina and Peter were incredibly easy to talk to and are genuinely nice, caring people. That, combined with the gorgeous background we had, with the mountains in the background and a sky that was a perfect blue, meant that my job was a little bit easier. I love having couples who are easy to photograph and give me such natural warmth. Christina and Peter connect so easily, with such effortless smiles. They are obviously very in love. I enjoyed photographing them as we adventured through Fernie, leveraging the natural beauty around us. From lush, green, summer woods to tall grass at the base of the mountains, these two were easy to be around.
Christina & Peter, thank you for asking me to be your engagement photographer. I truly enjoyed getting to know you both and hearing your love story, and I can’t wait for you two to be married!
