From the groom’s perspective, one of the most nerve-racking things about a proposal can often be the time leading up to it, and especially asking the parents for their blessing. I imagine Tristian’s nerves were going a mile a minute when he asked Jana’s parents too. But then probably a huge sigh of relief that came afterwards when they wholeheartedly gave their approval! Knowing the close relationship that Jana has with her mother, Tris even invited her to join him in the search for the perfect engagement ring!
Once they found the perfect ring, Tris started compiling ideas of how he thought he would propose. But thanks to the ever-wonderful pandemic going on, he held onto the ring, changing plans time and time again. Nearing Christmas, Tris’ plan eventually evolved into a clever scheme. He told Jana, “My mom doesn’t have a recent photo of me with my siblings, so let’s get everyone together to take an updated photo for her.” Once the sibling photos were finished, Tris turned to Jana and said, “Well since we are getting photos done, we might as well get some pictures of the two of us by the tree.”
Jana agreed, completely unaware of what was to come. Positioned in front of the Christmas tree, after they had taken a few photos, Tris knelt down, pulling the ring box from his pocket. The photos continued, capturing this special moment forever on camera! Jana was so blindsided by the proposal that very few words could escape her lips. She simply buried her face in her hands and nodded emphatically!
These two are some of the sweetest and kindest people you will ever meet. Their love, respect and compassion for each other ripples out into how they interact with others. They also love to laugh – so much of our session with them was filled with many giggles and full-on laughter.
Tris & Jana, thank you so much for adventuring with us. We had so much fun exploring Wascana Trails with you, and thoroughly enjoyed the time that we could spend getting a special glimpse into your life together. We encourage you to strive to never stop laughing together, that is such a beautiful gift! We cannot wait to celebrate your Lumsden Valley wedding next summer!!!
