Daniela + Justin {Niagara on the lake}

Daniela + Justin are a super sweet couple that I got to know a bit better while photographing their engagement session on a vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake at sunset. A place where Daniela and Justin like to go to celebrate their birthdays and their anniversaries.
I found out that they are both great skaters! Daniela was a competitive figure skater who for a period of time competed against her own cousin, Diana!  Although they competed against each other, they were always supportive and very happy for the one who placed first. (The other was not that far behind in second place). Sometime Daniela would be first and sometimes it would be Diana. Eventually the girls were on the same team and competed together. Daniela and Diana are very close, in fact they will be each other’s maid of honour for their weddings! Justin is a professional Hockey player. He is currently playing in Europe. I can’t imagine how hard it is for the both of them to be apart but Daniela makes sure to fly out to spend some time with Justin as often as she can.

While Daniela was visiting Justin in Europe, they decided to go the Rome for Christmas …

The Proposal:
We went to Rome for Christmas and the first day we got there we decided just to walk around and see whatever sites were on the way. Justin insisted on bringing his laptop with him while we walked around because he wanted to Skype his parents when we found a cafe to show them Rome. Once we got to Trevi Fountain he pulled out his laptop and told me he had made me a Christmas gift, which was a video with pictures from our years of being together. At the end was a letter to me, and as I was reading it he got down on one knee, pulled a ring out of his pocket and asked me to marry him. After a lot of crying and saying yes, he put the video back on and there were congratulatory messages from our families back home. It was the biggest surprise as he had asked my family for their blessings in May, and had kept the ring for so long (without me ever telling him what I wanted), and without me finding it.

What Daniela loves about Justin: I love how happy he makes me and how much he makes laugh, how outgoing and friendly he is and that he has such a big heart and will do anything for the people he loves.

What Justin loves about Daniela: I love how kind and loving she is and how beautiful she is inside and out.
