Sarah and Onur met for the first time at a mixer party for their MBA program at the University of British Columbia. Sarah was in the part-time track and Onur in the full-time, so their paths hadn’t crossed before that point. Onur introduced himself and Sarah remembers his kind smile, but nothing materialized between the pair immediately.
A few months after graduation from the program, Onur moved to Toronto. Eventually, the two began chatting a bit back and forth on Facebook. I’ll let Onur continue the story… “As luck would have it, she was coming to Toronto on a work trip and we decided to meet for a drink when she was in town. We ended up spending the entire time together while she was in Toronto. After she returned to Vancouver we kept talking everyday on the phone, on Skype and via text message. After a month of missing each other we decided that we didn’t want to be apart like that so I packed up and came back to Vancouver only 3 months after leaving.”
Isn’t that amazing? Sarah and Onur were engaged a few months ago and are planning a winery wedding in the Penticton area for next September. I was delighted to meet them both for their engagement session on Monday evening in the English Bay area. Enjoy!
I scouted out this adorable apartment building before their session… and we decided to take advantage of the pretty space!
Sarah and Onur live right near English Bay, so this is their neighbourhood! It was fun to capture photos in a place that means something to them.
These two are naturals in front of the camera and I loved getting the chance to capture these photos for them!
