Jasper Alberta Proposal | Miri + Wolfgang | Jasper Photographer
June 21, 2018 | Chasing Dreams Photography
Where do I even start with how incredible this Jasper Alberta Proposal was? I can honestly say it is one of the most rewarding things I have been able to be apart of while doing photography. When Wolfgang emailed me telling me that him and Miri were coming to Canada from Germany and he planned on proposing and was wanting to hire a photographer to capture it I did a happy dance, for about a week haha. To watch so much happiness and love made my heart melt. Thank you Miri + Wolfgang for allowing me document this beautiful life moment. Also thank you for trusting me wholeheartedly picking a location, setting up the picnic and with taking the pictures it is honestly a day I will never forget! I wish you two a lifetime of happiness, you two are perfect together and such beautiful people inside and out. I hope you two love these photos as much as I do. ♥ Also thanks for braving the cold water and jumping into the lake! These two are currently planning their wedding next year in Germany and I know it will be such a beautiful day filled with endless amounts of love.
Wolfgang + Miri’s Love Story
In November 2011 we met (or rather first talked to each other) in our favourite club in Munich, the Atomic Café, where Wolfgang worked as a DJ. A few weeks later on New Year’s Eve he asked me to become his girlfriend and from that point on we were in love. Early on we knew that we wanted to spend our lives together and get married some day. But after being together for more than six yeas I kind of started worrying, if he would ever ask. There were numerous opportunities: sunset in Turkey, picnic under the glittering Eiffel Tower in Paris or a wellness hotel in the Bavarian Forest, but nothing happened. He loved watching TV shows such asFrank, the wedding planner or Say yes to the dress, though – so, I figured that as a good sign!
Our trip to Canada in June was our first big adventure together. We first flew to Seattle, took the train to Vancouver and then rented a car to explore the Rocky Mountains. It was in the lovely town of Jasper, where it finally happened – Wolfgang proposed to me on the beautiful scenic Pyramid Island. He thought of everything: picnic, champagne, flowers, a sparkling ring and most important of all, a photographer, to capture the most perfect and magical day of our lives.
Fun Facts about the proposal:
I had no idea Wolfgang would propose to me on our Canada trip. When he told me he wanted one day to relax and hang out at our resort near pyramid lake, I was really worried to miss out on something. “I’ll be bored to death, while you’ll relax” were my reproachful words to him. I had no clue that he was planning the most exciting and perfect proposal for that day.
When seeing Carley for the first time, I was wondering how anyone could be so interested in doing macro shots of rather uninteresting plants. Only later I realized that it was a distraction tactic, after all she was already positioning for getting the perfect shots of the proposal.
As I was standing in front of my engagement picnic I was convinced that it was planned for someone else, warning Wolfgang not to step closer and urging him to move forward. Quote: “Don’t walk to into the picnic! Maybe someone is proposing soon or they have something like an anniversary.” Not knowing that seconds later he would go down on his knees to ask me to marry him.
