Banff Same Sex Surprise Proposal

Same-Sex Surprise Proposal

I was super excited when Alizee reached out to me through my instagram to booked me to photograph her surprise proposal to Stephanie.

Originally from Paris, but living in Ottawa, she knew what she wanted this moment to look like. Mountain. Glacial Lakes. The love of her life.
Months before coming out west, we connected and planned. Stephanie thought Alizee was coming to Banff for a conference at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and work had compensated them both for a weekend stay! Genius idea!

Two weeks before their arrival, Alizee emailed me to tell me that Stephanie had just proposed to her. She had handmade an entire midway of games and invited all of their friends and family. At the end of the midway, Stephanie was waiting with a ring! The weekend in Banff was still a go however, and so we finalized all our details.

How perfect is it that they BOTH got to surprise each other?

The weather was chilly, but we missed the blizzard the night before and enjoyed the fresh snow all around us.

I really enjoyed this shoot, not just because it was a same sex engagement session, but simply because it was a really fun afternoon spent in Banff with a really great couple.

Here’s some of my favourite photos from this Banff same sex engagement, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! I look forward to photographing more gay and LGBTQ+ couples!
