Chris is my cousin! He had been speaking with me for some time about how he wanted me there to document his proposal to Karen. I was totally on board. The only thing we had to figure out was… how can we do it without her knowing? So Chris, being the crafty gentleman that he is, started planting the seed early in the summer that “Mat wants to come down and go hiking with us sometime this summer”. There it was. Our in.
Chris and I settled on a date.
I drove down to Calgary where I stayed the night with them.
The next morning we all drove out to Kananaskis and hiked up to Rawson Lake where we started taking some photos for fun.
Then Chris got down on one knee and popped the question… to her absolute surprise.
It was perfect.
And I’m so glad I was there to document it.
