Today I’m happy to share the engagement session of a very special couple – Loukia & Roy!
For Loukia & Roy’s session, we decided to celebrate all the special little moments in their relationship so far by visiting some of their favourite places to spend time together – specifically Bastion Square and the beach along Dallas Road.
Loukia says “As hard as it is to believe we’ve been together for almost 8 years now! When we first met we lived just a few blocks from each other. My sister introduced us when she invited her friends over (who brought Roy) to join us for a night out. From then on we spent lots time together and quickly became good friends, enjoying strolls along Dallas Road and cooking tasty meals for each other. I guess you can say we won each other over with food and cuddles!
On June 21st 2008 Roy took me out for one of our favourite weekly dates at Azuma Sushi, then for a stroll through Bastion Square to listen to some live music while we shared a delicious Cascadia brownie (one of my favourites!). We then headed out to Dallas Road to watch the sunset, and by this point I could sense something was up! Roy seemed really nervous – it gave me butterflies! He took me out to a beautiful lookout point, pulled a sparkly ring from his pocket, got down on one knee and popped the question! I was caught by surprise and accepted with a YES, YES, YES!!! A perfect evening with a perfect ending…or should I say beginning! We can’t wait to make it official!”
One of the sweetest things about Loukia & Roy is their obvious affection for each other! To start their session, we met at The Irish Times Pub, where I found them sharing a single beer and writing love notes for each other that they would later share when we reached the beach! So adorable, and it made for a great new memory at a place that already had special meaning for them!
Plus, Loukia had prepared a wonderful little picnic for the beach, complete with mini Ooh La La Cupcakes (yum!), San Pellegrino Limonata, and a familiar face – their dog, Ozzie!
I’m so excited to see Loukia & Roy start their married life together tomorrow and celebrate their Greek and Irish heritage! It’s going to be so, so beautiful! Can’t wait!
Heart-melting! Love this one!
