The Proposal

“I’ve known Shantel + DJ for a couple years now so when DJ reached out to me ready to pop the question I immediately did a little happy dance and got down to planning! We chatted a bit over email and eventually met up for coffee to talk through “the plan.” He wanted to make it big and epic so we settled on a helicopter proposal! I’d expect nothing less from these two! As we talked DJ told me about how he took Shantel’s dad out to a hockey game to ask his permission and wanted to propose before their big trip out to visit his family on the east coast. My heart was literally melting the entire time. So we landed *pun intended* on a helicopter company just outside of Calgary who were eager to be in on the plan with us! They offered rides in little 4 seater helicopters to a ridge in the foothills at the edge of the rocky mountains. To get the plan in motion I reached out to Shantel to ask if her and DJ would help model for me for a session I was planning, and I don’t mean to brag here, but I can be a great actress. She was all in and we went back and forth planning outfits and getting excited for what would be a truly memorable helicopter session! When the day finally arrived we met up with our pilot, he played is part perfectly making sure Shantel didn’t key into anything suspicious. After a beautiful flight out to Powder Face Ridge we landed and got a few shots before I asked Shantel if she didn’t mind posing alone for a few. She was more than happy to and when she wasn’t looking is when DJ swooped in and took her off guard. He had a beautifully prepared speech and got down on one knee to which she obviously said YES! We celebrated on the snowy ridge and got some more photos of the newly engaged couples before the flight back into the airfield. During our flight we couldn’t help but joke about who was getting left on the mountain if she had said no. But luckily we got back down to Mountain View Helicopters and popped some bubbly to finish off an epic proposal!”
