Summertime Picnic Engagement Session by L’Estelle Photography

Summertime engagement sessions are the best! There’s nothing like a picnic in the park under beautiful blue skies to celebrate the love and commitment between two people. The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8763Although we met Krista and Mike for the first time at this engagement session, we immediately felt a connection with them. Later on we discovered that they are also animal lovers like us! We had decided to do a picnic themed engagement shoot at Burnaby Lake Nature Park, where there are plenty of animals. We had the pleasure of inviting stylist and set designer, Karen, from Vintage Meant for Rent to style and design the picnic for the couple. Krista’s mother bakes the best pastries, and she made lemon Butterfly cupcakes as well as raspberry chocolate cupcakes for us. We could not stop eating them after the session; they were way too delicious!

At the end of the shoot, we had a chance to ask the couple about their love story, and we must share it with you: Michael and Krista spent many years working together, alongside animals. However, it wasn’t until a few years later that they began spending time together outside of work. They discovered that their shared love of animals was not the only thing they had in common. On November 30th, 2014, after spending the day together in the snow, Michael played a song for Krista, which he had played for the first time earlier that day. They listened to the song, “Forever”, by Ben Harper, a few times, and while the song was in the interlude, Mike asked Krista if she would be his forever. Krista replied, “of course I already am! Silly goose!” Unexpectedly, he opened her hand and gave her something. To her surprise, she was given a ring, and the gravity of his question became apparent, and Krista couldn’t hold back the tears, and said “yes!”The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8762 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8764The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8738 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8765 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8766 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8767 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8768 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8769 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8770 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8771 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8772 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8773 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8774 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8775 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8776 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8777 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8778 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8779 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8780 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8781 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8782 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_8783Photographer: L’Estelle Photography | Other Location: Burnaby Lake | Design and Decor: Vintage Meant for RentSubmitted via Two Bright Lights
