Alyssa & Ben's Engagement {Ottawa Wedding Photographer}

THEIR STORY

Ben and I have been together for almost 7 years. The subject of getting married has definitely been brought up. Ben had once told me that when we got married that he wouldn’t want any debt of paying off a ring - meaning he probably wouldn’t be proposing any time soon since he would have to start saving up!

Fast forward to October 2016, Thanksgiving weekend when we go up to Mont Ste Marie ski hill to take the chair lift up the hill and see the fall foliage. My absolute favorite time of the year! That morning when we got to the hill Ben insisted on bringing his camera and tripod. I complained and asked why, I stated... or maybe whined that he never takes pictures of us (he loves to take nature/landscape pictures). Ben told me maybe we could take a picture of us at the top of the hill! Once at the top of the hill, it was crawling with people and Ben was getting frustrated he couldn’t get a shot, we moved down another hill and found the most beautiful view. I remember him setting it up and running over to me for the timed picture. I laughed at him like I usually do and once he got to me he dropped to one knee and proposed. I couldn’t believe it was happening so I responded with the biggest smile and said “no”, Ben laughed and asked me if I was really saying no, I started to cry and tell him yes! It was the very best day, with my very best friend.
