I first met Leah a couple of years back when she was her sisters maid of honour at a wedding that I had the privilege to be second shooting and I was VERY excited when Leah had contacted me about shooting their wedding!
Leah & Mike met through mutual friends. Leah's friend and her husband were attending a September wedding a few years back where her friend was lucky enough to meet Mike, so she immediately sent Leah a message telling her that she had found her a guy! Such a good friend if you ask me. Although it took Mike until December to touch base and send Leah a message through facebook, it was definitely worth it in the end! Mike was living in Prince George and Leah in White Rock, so they spent the first month chatting online and when Mike came to see her In January for the first time it only took them 3 days before realizing that the long distance was worth it and made things official. Only a few months later they bought a house together, then welcomed their dog Nova into their family and then while on a cruise Mike popped the big question and Leah never hesitated to say yes!
For their engagement session we head to Crescent Park in Surrey and then Blackie Spit Park. I always love when couples bring their dogs to their sessions, they are part of your family and have all the right in the world to be a part of your photos! Mike know's exactly how to get Leah to smile and that is always so awesome to watch!
I seriously can't wait to celebrate your wedding with you next month!!
