Love in the time of COVID- Jasper Style!
Mergim contacted us to capture his surprise proposal in Jasper to the love of his life, Catherine. They were staying at the iconic Jasper Park Lodge and that is where he decided to drop to his knee and pop the question. We hid in the bushes and waited for them to arrive at Sundeck 4. Suddenly we saw two visions approaching us- she, in an absolutely stunning vintage dress, and he in an eclectic suit that wowed us. They walked onto the deck and we sprung into action- each of us choosing a different angle to capture the moment.
Two souls connecting in Jasper
Of course, Catherine said yes and through the rest of the engagement session, we kept hearing her say, “Are you kidding me dude?!” as she glanced down on her gorgeous engagement ring. After the proposal, since we had never met this incredible couple before, we got to know each other a bit. Mergim spotted Catherine in a U of A university class where they both were studying to become doctors. He is becoming a family physician and she, a psychiatrist. It sounds like it was love at first sight as they had so much in common. They were two souls that simply connected on a deep level of love and enjoyment of film cameras and all things vintage.
If you are planning a surprise proposal in Jasper, consider the following:
- contact the hotel that you are staying at to see if they can assist in setting up a location
- remember that if you act natural, your fiancé will have no idea what you are planning
- hire a local professional photography company to document your proposal as well as photos after
