Alycia & Andrew Engaged — Edmonton Engagement Photographers
September 10th, 2011
What a fun engagement session this was! It included everything from beautiful autumn light and laughter, to a homeless person creeping up on us! Alycia is a dear friend of mine from high school, we were a group of three friends, which after this upcoming year, we will all be married! It’s such an exciting time for both Alycia and Andrew and we are so excited for them!
Alycia and Andrew are both chefs at the same restaurant (an extremely delicious one I might add!), ironically enough Alycia just happens to be marrying her own boss although she assures us this wasn’t the case when they started dating three years ago.
Their engagement is right out of a movie! (Even down to the hilarious shenanigans of Andrew trying to hide from and not bump into Alycia in the Bellagio before hand) She was completely unaware and as they told it all I could do was tear up a little and let out an “aww, that’s so cute!” Alycia was down in Vegas for the weekend with some girls doing the usual Vegas things. As she waited for another co-worker to meet up with in front of the Bellagio hotel fountains, there was Andrew, dressed up and waiting for her. Good thing for Andrew, she still hadn’t caught on to this romantic scheme, but just kept wondering why he was there, dressed up… with a ring box? As Andrew confessed his love to her in front of one of the city they are to be wed in, he got down on one knee, opened up the ring box, and of course uttered the words “Will you marry me?” Now, Alycia doesn’t recall saying yes (as most of us do ie: myself) but as soon as she had accepted and Andrew stood up the song that was playing over the courtyard ended and the Bellagio fountains went off to finish off such a romantic evening for them.
Doesn’t that just sound beautiful? They are going to have a fabulous wedding in Vegas. We are so excited to be sharing in all their special moments up to that day, now after a story like that pictures are a must, and with the week we’ve been having here we couldn’t wait to get out with them! And we are so excited to get down to Vegas to do some more!
Such models, aren’t they just incredibly cute though? We loved when they got into it!
We always love to do a little bit of urban and a little bit of natural photos!
