kris & jenna {proposal}

When Kris asked for my help with his idea of a photoshoot/surprise proposal I was 110% in!  I was so honoured to be present when he asked Jenna to marry him, I have to say between the birth I photographed earlier this spring and wedding season starting I’m getting pretty darn good at shooting through a few tears :)

Kris and I had previously chatted about how it would all go down and now all I needed was to persuade Jenna to “model” for me that same night.  Thankfully being the great friend she is agreed and we trekked through very tall mosquito infested fields to my perfect spot.  We laughed as I remembered the last time I photographed Jenna and she was a great sport about that session too, even in the -20 degree winter!!

Anyways… Kris and I had planned that I would ask him to jump in a few shots part way through then direct them into the perfect proposal position :)  After that it was all Kris and I was happy to have on a long lens and just quietly shoot them while they took a moment to really enjoy their wonderful occasion.

I love how this session tells the story of their engagement, so I’m happy to share their slideshow with you.
