I am so excited to share these engagement photos I took for one of my very best friends in the whole wide world. Tia and I met (once upon a time) in grade one at Pleasantside Elementary School, in Mrs. Summers’ class. Now that I think about it, that was over 20 years ago, Wow! I have been lucky to have Tia as a friend in far more ways than I could count, or ever put into words. I truly can’t imagine my life without her honesty, encouragement, understanding, selflessness, and hilarious sense of humour.

A few years ago, while I was backpacking in Australia, Tia wrote me a long email to tell me all about a new man in her life, named Jordan. They fit together just perfectly. This past January, while the two were snowboarding on a weekend getaway, Jordan got down on one knee and proposed (right there on the mountain)! The wedding is this August where I will perform both bridesmaid and photographer duty all in one day, I can’t wait!!

The two just bought their very first house in Maple Ridge, and I couldn’t be more proud of them! We took some engagement photos around their new yard. I love how they just beam with happiness. Here are my favourites! Enjoy! :)
