Melinda surprised Tyler with a trip and tickets to a Red Sox game for Christmas one year. She thought for sure he would ask her to marry him during that trip. He didn’t. She told me this story as we’re shooting their engagement session at the new baseball diamond at MacDonald Island. So cute in her red sparkly running shoes, with tons of energy and he’s just shaking his head, going with the flow.
Since both Melinda and Tyler grew up here in Fort McMurray, we decided to incorporate some classic landmarks. I love that we ended up choosing a gorgeous natural landscape in Abasand, a new construction at MacDonald Island, and old boom town landmark – the Boomtown Casino! They all represent why we love Fort McMurray so much – natural beauty, growth, and change are what we’re all about up here!
Melinda and Tyler, I couldn’t be more excited for your wedding! Thank you so much for the fun afternoon, for laughing it off when people wondered what the heck we were up to, and for being your amazing selves! xo
