Classic Canoe Engagement in Canada

Kathy and Neil’s love story is one straight from the movies. They’ve known each other since childhood and their parents live on the same street. Taking a canoe out for a spin, grabbing an ice cream cone and having a picnic seems like the perfect way for these two to celebrate their engagement in Hudson, Quebec. / Photos by Emilie Olson.

Kathy_Neil_Engagement_EO_20 Kathy_Neil_Engagement_EO_22Says photographer Emilie, “Kathy and Neil are engaged after 12 some odd years of dating. They went to the same elementary school and their parents live across the street from each other. The relationship seeded during the “boys had cooties” era. Okay, I won’t be biased in the on-going cooties debate, girls had them too. We needed to do something special. Thanks goes out to Deka Events for her help with props and location scouting. K+N did a great deal themselves. And of course Dexter, their Yorkie, for moral support. I didn’t think this through because apparently when you request a canoe it should be an obligation that you help carry it. Neil did the bulk of it, bless him. I’ve wanted to feature one for a while and it worked beautifully!”
