It was just a regular night out with friends. Karl was waiting to meet up with them on a bench near Queen and John when Kristina walked up to meet him with one of their friends. At that moment Karl realized he was wearing a tee with an inappropriate message on it and was worried it would offend her. The opposite result happened and Kristina got Karl’s number a month later and demanded her add her to BBM. That very weekend they went out on their first date and have spent every weekend together ever since. It’s been four years now and Karl still keeps that t-shirt and Kristina still loves it!
Kristina says she loves how they have a strange sense of humor and the ability to have fun together regardless of what they’re doing. Even if it’s just sitting around in sweatpants! They love exploring, especially when it comes to trying new delicious food. But most of all, they love how they support each other, have a great amount of mutual respect and they never take their relationship for granted.
Kristina and Karl sure now how to keep things interesting and fun. While we were walking around Queen St for some locations for their engagement photo shoot, they were full of laughs and couldn’t keep apart! We went back to the bench near Queen and John where Kristina and Karl first met. It was the same bench that 4 years later, Karl popped the question. We thought this would be so meaningful…. but when we got there, it was gone! The City of Toronto had removed their bench. Yes, THEIR bench! Although Kristina and Karl was initially a little upset, they kept on being their usual fun selves and enjoyed themselves no matter where they were or what they were doing. :)
Can’t wait to photograph their wedding at Kurtz Orchards in Niagara next year!
