Moriah and Noah are the sweetest couple around! They have hearts of gold, easy to get along with, the cutest giggles and the biggest smiles! It was so much fun to show them around Moose Jaw, and then end up with a cute little “Tea Time” picnic by the river down in Walkamow Valley.
We started out at a white wall in downtown Moose Jaw with a super cute outfit (Moriah, I loved your bright red stiletto shoes and your hat!) for the more urban feel. Then we went out of town to this beautiful bridge for some golden hour photos. At this point they also brought out their bikes which was so adorable! Moriah even road her bike with her stilettos! She’s a super star! Then we switched locations one more time to get some more nature photos with an outfit change at sunset. At this location we also set up a cute picnic area and it was so romantic! All these little changes made for a visually beautiful final gallery with lots of variety for them! (Plus how fun is it to bring some of their hobbies into the session – it makes it so personal!)
I love getting the groom-to-be to make his fiancee laugh! And Noah was a rock star at getting Moriah to bust a gut laughing! Moriah is super ticklish – and I mean you just look at her with a silly grin and she is squirming and it made for some pretty cute photos of the two of them.
Fun fact about Moriah. She doesn’t like heights. Even Noah lifting her up with to high. But when Noah did, she was so brave and in the end, it resulted in some pretty beautiful and romantic photos! Thanks for doing that Moriah!!
Moriah and Noah have a fun engagement ring story. It is family tradition for the guys in Noah’s family to give a key ring as part of their proposal. Here is Noah’s side of the proposal which is so cute, I just had to share!!!
“We went on a trip to Canmore for a weekend. I figured she knew as it was blatantly obvious as she wanted me to propose sometime in February and I was taking her on a trip. However I waited till the end of the trip, so that she could develop a bit of doubt. It’s no fun proposing if there isn’t a slight bit of surprise. We went for a walk around town on our last full day there. There was a great spot outside of town that I wanted to pop the question as it was on an old railroad wooden bridge overlooking the mountains and a river. Unfortunately when we got there it was tourism galore and there was a wedding party there taking pictures. So we kept walking and found another spot. She was taking a picture of me, I got down on one knee and stuttered the question. She wanted to give a sarcastic remark back (she probably had a clever response rehearsed for the last year), but being overwhelmed she just said yes. I gave her a fake engagement ring ( a key ring), out of fear of me dropping it into the river. It was also to continue the Q’s tradition as my dad did the same thing when he proposed to my mom. Except his reason was that he didn’t have enough saved up for one. And when he asked it was ” hey we should get married or something” and then popped the key ring off of his trucks keys as they were sitting inside his truck outside of the gym. But to continue the story, I gave her the real ring after crossing the bridge. And she couldn’t stop smiling (actually though, she couldn’t stop,even when she tried. I thought I broke her).”
Seriously I love that story and the key ring tradition! So I was so excited that they brought the key ring for some photos too! So you just have to scroll to see these cute photos!
Congrats again Noah and Moriah! It was so much fun taking these photos and getting to know you both! I couldn’t be more excited for you two and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding! Can it be now? 🙂
