For a long time, Gaines and Emma had dreamed of visiting Banff National Park. After renovating an old RV Gaines convinced Emma and friends to embark on an epic Summer break road trip, with the highlight being Banff- the perfect place to propose. After many texts and phone calls Gaines and I arranged the surprise. I would be hiding near the spot to catch the moment, and Emma’s sister and other dear friends who couldn’t make the RV trip would be hiding nearby…and it came together perfectly. The next day we started with a sunrise canoe ride at Moraine Lake, followed by an afternoon getting soaked at a massive waterfall. A quick cleanup later and we ran back to catch the tail end of the sunset in some random field off the side of the highway…Yes, you can’t go wrong with random fields when in Banff. What an adventure and what a rad couple! Well done Gaines.
