Aliisa and Dillon first connected online just less than two years ago. The two of them exchanged messages back and forth for almost a month’s time before deciding, Let’s meet up! They met at a restaurant in Yaletown for drinks and both of them remember the first date being quite awkward, but in a good way. Dillon said while we were at their engagement session on Monday afternoon, We had so many things in common it was almost strange. They barely touched their drinks that day, talking for three hours on the first date. Aliisa remembers the relationship starting slow (Dillon didn’t try to kiss her until the 4th date) but after a couple of months, they both fell quickly, moving in together a few months after that.
This past summer, they got engaged while on vacation in the Dominican Republic! Aliisa and Dillon are planning a wedding for the Summer of 2018 and still working out venue/date details. In the meantime, they booked an engagement session with me! Aliisa and Dillon really wanted to capture the natural beauty of Lighthouse Park and I love the engagement photos we created. They arrived in awesome outfits and Aliisa was prepared for the 20-30 minute trek down to the rocks with her brown boots (swapped out for fancy heels) – and neither of them thought twice about changing in the open forest, haha! I loved their flexibility and appreciated their trust in me for this session, as I always do.
