A few weeks ago, I was able to meet up with Rebecca and Nick at the Nottawasaga Inn and Resort for their engagement photo session. We had rescheduled from a few weeks earlier when we had that crazy cold, wintery weather! It was a bit chilly during their session but you can’t tell because Rebecca and Nick were so cozy together!
Rather than me telling their story, I asked Rebecca if she would share a bit of their story on my blog!
Where did you two meet?
Nick and I met October of 2011 up near a small town called Lac La Biche, AB. We were both working in the oil fields and both resided at the same camp. Nick was working out in the fields as a Drill Rig Operator and I was in camp at the front desk and I was that smiling face everyone saw after coming home from a 12 hour shift. There were at least 1,500 people in our camp. One day Nick decided to come over and talk to me. After that, everyday for almost three months, Nick being his charming self, would come over and chat and would even wait up until my shift was over to play ping pong. He would pull pranks on me almost everyday.
Three months after we met we both knew we wanted to be with each other. We both left the camp life and moved to Calgary together.
How did the proposal happen?
Being from Ontario myself, in September of 2015 we decided it was a perfect time for our family to all move to Ontario. Nick was still working in Calgary so for the longest time he was flying back and forth when he could to visit us. Thanksgiving weekend, not knowing he was coming home, he surprised us all. Thanksgiving day Nick proposed and even had our daughters a part of it. It was beautiful.
What are you most excited about for your wedding?
Nick and I are very excited, grateful and looking forward to all our friends and family who are able to make it especially those who are flying out from the east and west to spend our special day with us.
I’m so excited to have been chosen to be their photographer for their August wedding and to be able to document their special day. Rebecca and Nick are going to be having their ceremony at Rich Hill United Church in Tottenham, Ontario and will be having their reception at the beautiful Nottawasaga Inn and Resort.
Here are a few of my favourites from our session together. These two have so much love and fun together and it was evident in our time together. At the end of the engagement session, we headed inside the Nott and captured some pictures of them playing ping pong together- something that they really enjoy to do!
Congratulations again Rebecca and Nick, I cannot wait for your August wedding!
