Sarah & Jake’s Beautiful Summer Engagement Session – Niagara Wedding Photographer

On Canada Day weekend I got to close of an amazing engagement season with Sarah and Jake.  This summer session was special for me because Sarah is my cousin, and she is the second girl cousin to be married from my family!  Sarah and Jake chose Balls Falls Conservation area in Niagara as the location for their photo session.  Surprisingly, I had never been there before! Having grown up in the area and passing this spot probably hundreds of times, this was my first time visiting this gorgeous spot!

We had a great time exploring the area together and although we couldn’t figure out how to get down to the lower falls, we found some gorgeous locations for their pictures.  These two had so much fun together.  There was a lot of laughter, smiles and a lot of love!

Their session officially wrapped up my engagement season and once again I’m having Sarah and Jake share their story here on my blog.  This was something new I wanted to try this year and I’m so I was able to share so many stories.  That’s one thing I want to learn to be better at- sharing our stories with those around then.  I’m so thankful to have been able to share so many stories here on my blog!

~ Sarah + Jake’s Story ~

Jake and I met in high school in 2009 when we started Grade 9 at Smithville District Christian High School. It was in Grade 11 when I started “crushing” on Jake a little bit. We had mutual friends, and he was friends with some of my cousins, so we were always hanging out in the same friend group. I think everybody knew I had a crush on Jake, including Jake.
But that time was not the time yet that we started to date. We graduated June in 2012 and continued to hang out with out friends a little bit on weekends, but we didn’t really see each other much anymore.  After I went to Africa in November of 2013, we started talking a little more– this time with Jake initiating the conversation!  I got to thinking, “Wow! Maybe he likes me back finally!” We then officially started dating April of 2014. 
In March of 2017, at our spot (a place by the beach where we watch the sun go down a lot) Jake asked me to marry him. We were sitting on the tailgate of his truck and he told me he loved me,  and that he loved me for a long time. He asked me if I want to make it a life time. (Yes I know, he is very cheesy!) He got down on one knee, and I was super surprised! But of course I said YES! 
I am so excited to marry this man that God has placed in my life. I know God had the perfect plan for us all along. I guess I was trying to get a head start on it a bit to early. 🙂 I am looking forward to what our future brings! We’re both looking forward to spending our day with family and friends, the people that mean the most to us, to help make our special day memorable.

Sarah and Jake are looking forward to their October 28th wedding day where they will say their I Do’s to one another in front of their loved ones.  Congratulations again you two, and thank you again for allowing me to capture your beautiful memories for you!  Many blessings to you both as you continue to plan for your marriage!

Here are a few of my favourites from our session together!  If you ever have a chance to head to Ball’s Fall’s in Niagara, I highly recommend it! I’m looking forward to checking it out next time with my family!
