Meet Kirbi & Steven! 

I had the joy of meeting and photographing this wonderful couple in their hometown of Okotoks on a warm summer evening! Turns out that Kirbi is like my sister from another mister, as our long legs and tall girl problems are very similar!  I was loving her tan trench and saw that it was from Long Tall Sally {still don't love that name} and immediately connected on our love of shopping there!  Also a huge fan of all things RED, she rocked a sweet pair of Long Tall Sally pants during the bridge pictures at the end and found a way to sneak red into Stevens paid shirt! 

Let's talk about this stunning ring...the Saphire ring that Steven purposed with! "It's someone's favorite stone, so it just made sense to ask her to marry me with it!" 

These two met on a mountaintop at Lake Lousie ski resort.  Kirbi, who was only on day two of learning how to ski, and had no business attempting the black run in front of her...but a friend took her up there thinking it would be ok! Not so much...

Steven was the ski instructor there to rescue Kirbi as he skied backwards the whole way down the hill guiding and making sure she got here safely!  When retelling this storey at the engagement session, Steve got a huge smile on his face recalling Kirbi's tucker mouth as the fearful and inexperienced skier slowly made her way down the hill to safety!  

I think it's amazing to look back at the moment when we first meet our "person" and we have no idea the journey that is yet to unfold.  This Saturday on another mountaintop, Kirbi & Steven will start a new journey of life together as husband and wife, at the scenic Kicking Horse Resort.  I can't wait for the day to unfold and watch these two say I DO!!
