Chris was a member at his church for five years until he met Sunny for the first time when they happened to in the same small group together. Although Sunny was a new member, she was very open in sharing stories of her life which intrigued Chris and wanted to know more. Chris worked up the courage to ask her out to dinner and found out how easy it was to talk to each other and that they had so many common interests. From then on, they continued to see each other at church every Sunday. But it was only 9 months later that Chris asked Sunny out again and they both realized that they wanted to commit to each other romantically. Chris recalls Sunny supported him through his time of struggle in finding a job and how they’ve become the best of friends. So sweet!
Chris and Sunny love to explore nature and enjoy beautiful sceneries. In doing so, they love to take walks together. Last year just after Christmas, Sunny and Chris were walking along one of the trails in Algonquin Park when Chris decided to pop the big question! I love this story because it is so similar to the way my fiance and I got engaged in Limberlost Forest, next to Algonquin Park.
I knew how much Sunny and Chris love to spend time with each other out in nature so for their engagement session we headed over to a large field of flowers. Sunny loved how natural, romantic and pretty the setting was especially at sunset! We set out to go there for sunset photos but to our dismay it was SO cloudy. There was absolutely no sun and it looked like it was about to thunderstorm. I knew how much Sunny wanted a whimsical and romantic feel at sunset so we decided to replicate the sun with some additional lights of our own and make it feel like it was a beautiful warm sunset that day. I love how it turned out! We also went to a gorgeous little forest when night fell for some mystical and magical photos that remind me of a set out of a Disney movie!
It surely helped that Sunny and Chris are extremely adorable with one another. They were so concerned about being awkward in front of the photos but as long as we let them be themselves with each other, they laughed and had fun! I’m so glad we were able to capture them just as they are!
