Kelly and Byron met four years ago while both working for the Saskatoon Health Region. Three years later Byron started thinking about asking Kelly to be his wife and tried to come up with an awesome way to propose. Since they go on a trip to see a sporting event in Edmonton each year, Byron thought he had the ultimate plan – have the words, “Will you marry me, Kelly?” up on the big screen. Unfortunately the engagement ring wasn’t ready in time, and maybe for the better since Kelly wasn’t too sure how she would have liked all of that attention in the stadium.
Instead Byron planned an intimate and romantic proposal in their home this past March, and Kelly accepted. I had the pleasure to meet this incredible couple shortly after their engagement to talk about their upcoming wedding. The two of them loved the idea of getting in front of the camera for an engagement shoot, so we scheduled something for the summer.
Here are some of my favourite photographs from that evening in Saskatoon. Before we started I asked the two of them if they had anything specific in mind for the shoot. Kelly’s only request was, “that I make her look good.” As you can see, she made my job pretty easy. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding this fall.
