From photographer Courtney Liske of Courtney Liske Photography:
High school sweethearts. I think, thanks to all of the movies in our youth, this is something that everyone longs to be. Recently, we got to shoot a beautiful engagement session with high school sweathearts, Cole and Alisha!
This summer they took a trip out to British Columbia to visit the area where some of Cole’s family lives. They were driving through Sicamous, and found themselves reminiscing as they drove through the neighbourhood where his grandparents had lived. At the end of the road is a mountainside, somewhere they had hiked and gone adventuring together many times before. Cole told Alisha that he wanted to climb the mountain side “real quick”, just to get a look at the view, and away they went. As they climbed higher and higher, they climbed up on top of a giant boulder, where Cole proceeded to get down on one knee, and propose to Alisha!
It is so much fun for to photograph couples who love each other so much that they can’t contain it. This was one of those sessions where you can so clearly feel the love they have for one another. What a beautiful gift that is to your marriage, and later on, to your family! Never lose that!
