Dani & Jason | Christie Falls | Kelowna Engagement Photos
Dani + Jason adventured over 30 kilometers down a logging road to reach Christie Falls for their Kelowna engagement photos!
I first met Dani while we were attending the University of Toronto. After we graduated we lost touch for a few years but were able to reconnect almost ten years later for their Kelowna engagement photos. It’s always great catching up with old friends, especially when I get to be a part of a new chapter of their lives.
Jason and Dani met online using Match.com but waited a few weeks after they were matched to go on their first date. They used this time to get to know each other by playing a question game. Every day they would ask each other three questions that needed to be answered fully and honestly. These questions ranged from “what’s your favourite colour” to “what are your life ambitions” and really helped them take care of the ‘get to know you’ moments that first dates are normally full of.
Their first date went well, and was mirrored almost perfectly exactly one year later when Jason proposed to Dani. Same restaurant, same table, same dessert. The biggest difference, is this time the night ended with a sparkly diamond on Dani’s left hand.
We met up in West Kelowna before beginning the drive to Christie Falls, following some amazing directions by Carlee Kish that were posted on KelownaNow.com. While very detailed it felt like we were driving forever until we crested a hill and saw the sign for the parking area. From the parking area, Dani and Jason lead the way through a ‘ghost forest’ of trees that were burned in the 2009 Terrace Mountain forest fire. Once we reached the waterfall, the light was gorgeous and we explored for a while before just settling down to enjoy a bottle of wine while overlooking the mountains!
