Amanda and Piero Have one of the most "meant to be" stories I have ever heard. They met when they were 7 years old and Piero was living in Italy. Piero traveled to Edmonton with his family for a wedding and that's where him and Amanda met for the first time. Two years later he and his family returned to Edmonton for another wedding and guess who was there again... Amanda! Now if that's not fate I don't know what is! They became quick friends and stayed in touch through Facebook until Piero decided to move to Edmonton when he was 19. They dated for a little over a year and then in 2014 Piero popped the question in beautiful Banff Alberta. Now since they are planning to tie the knot aboard the SS Sicamous in Pentiction B.C next year, it seemed only natural to do a water themed engagement session. We met at Elk Island right before sunset for a super fun Canoeing engagement shoot. When we arrived the rental shop was closed due to high winds and cool temperatures but luckily the wonderful owners at Haskin Canoe made the trip back to the lake to help us out. And again as if it were meant to be, the sun came out, the winds calmed down and it turned into a beautiful evening. I can't wait for your big day in B.C. next year guys, I have no doubt that it will be a perfect day.
