When you decide you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start right then and there. That’s how Denis felt when he decided to propose to Nikkie during their surprise trip to Cuba. He planned to propose during dinner, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with his late mother’s wedding band, but happiness and sheer excitement got the better of him and he ended up proposing before they could even make it down to the beach! The two shared an intimate moment they couldn’t put into words, and it made their dinner even more memorable and special.
Nikkie & Denis met in high school and have been together ever since. They both enjoy being in nature, exploring Point Pelee National Park, playing tennis, bike riding, and going on coffee dates. One of their favourite memories is the time they visited Lambeau Field in Wisconsin to cheer on the Green Bay Packers under a wet snowfall, a hot chocolate and whiskey safely in-hand.
We met up with Nikkie and Denis on one of the last warm days in September on their boat in LaSalle. It was the perfect location for their romantic, down-to-earth engagement session. The day couldn’t have been any better; the weather was mild, the sun was golden, and Nikkie and Denis seemed so at home being outdoors in the sunshine, it was easy to capture the laid-back qualities of their relationship. After shooting some pretty photos on the boat accompanied by glasses of bubbly champagne, we made our way back to land for a few more shots on the dock before ending our session with a sit-down by a small barrel fire to keep warm as we watched the evening turn into night.
Nikkie and Denis, we have loved getting to know you both through taking your engagement photos and we are so excited for the bright future you’ll soon share as husband and wife! We wish you nothing but the best in this new season of your lives together.
