Storytelling Engagement Photos ~ Fishing in the Nanaimo River, BC

Erin and Jake’s storytelling engagement photos were taken in the Nanaimo River, reenacting their amazing fishing proposal. Jake proposed to Erin while fishing hip-deep in the Nanaimo River. It’s a passion of his that he has shared with his best friend and she too now loves the activity. When he bent down to change a lure from his tackle box, he was actually getting the engagement ring. She said YES!!!

Telling a Story with your Engagement Photos

I love telling a story with your engagement photos, it’s something you can look back on in later years and remember where you were at that particular time. I always ask my couples what activities they enjoy doing together, what passions they have influenced each other on, where do they spend mutual time together, and also how the proposal happened. These answers help me to suggest a meaningful location for the engagement photos. We also brainstorm about including activities, such as fishing, walking the dogs, geocaching, baking, playing music etc. When I met with these two at Serious Coffee, I immediately thought about a fishing engagement session after hearing about how he proposed. They were SO into it! We even went to the exact spot along the Nanaimo River where he asked her to marry him. So cute!
