When I asked Kristine and Oliver to name some of the things that make them unique as a couple, I loved the answers they gave! First of all – they both are immigrants to Canada, Kristine from the Philippines and Oliver from England. Both moved to Canada with their families a handful of years ago. They both attended Vancouver Film School for Video Game Design but weren’t in any of the same classes (Oliver was finishing his studies while Kristine started hers.) After graduating school, Kristine got a job at the same company Oliver happened to work for! Over the last three or four years, Kristine and Oliver have worked together in various capacities and on huge projects as a team.
Two years ago, a group of their mutual friends started a bi-weekly tradition of dinner after work at a Japanese restaurant. Always the same one, always the same group of friends. Kristine and Oliver got to know each other more through these twice a month meetings, connecting on a more personal then simply professional level. At a celebration launch party for a completed project, Kristine and Oliver found themselves with a growing attraction to one another in November.
They started dating and by Christmas, Oliver had said, “I love you” and let Kristine know he was seriously about this relationship. Kristine reciprocated remembering, “I’ve never been happier!” One short week later, at 1 o’ clock in the morning after watching fireworks on New Year’s Eve, Oliver proposed with a beautiful diamond ring and asked Kristine to be his wife. She said yes! A whirlwind romance at it’s finest, Kristine and Oliver decided on a Spring 2017 wedding at the Stanley Park Teahouse and I’m thrilled to be included in their celebration.
I met K+O for the first time at their engagement session and they totally killed it! Love the outfits Kristine selected and how natural these two are in front of the camera. Enjoy the photos!
Kristine, that dress was such a good choice! I adore it.
You guys do serious well. ;)
After enjoying the shade in Yaletown, we hopped in the car for a quick drive down to Sunset Beach Park, the spot where Oliver proposed on New Year’s Eve!
The light was so ridiculously good.
So looking forward to your wedding next April, you guys! Thanks for choosing me!
