I Love You to The Moon and Back – A Designed Date Night with Absolutely Proposals and Romantic Events
I Love You to the Moon and Back!
A Custom Date Night Shoot with Absolutely Proposals
Caleigh and Ali, the talented women behind ‘Absolutely Proposals & Romantic Events’, set up a photo shoot. The focus was to showcase the ‘romantic events’ potential of their business. They not only arrange amazing proposals, they help plan amazing date nights too! Alongside us were some fantastic vendors: Bella Linens, Gathered Table Supply Co., and Orange Trunk Vintage Styling & Rentals. The beautiful video above was created by the very talented Glass Stone Cinema, who we had the pleasure of working with. They all helped bring the night to life!
Candlelit Dinner in the Woods
We started off just outside of Okotoks, amongst a beautiful patch of trees next to a wooden fence. We set up our couple, Nathan and Andrea, as if they were out on a date night. The set ups throughout the evening were beautiful and surreal.
Between the rows of trees, ‘Absolutely’ had set up a table, surrounded by beautiful candles and lights. The couple sat, as if they were enjoying a romantic, outdoor, candlelight dinner.
Highway to Heaven
Once we had that setting done, we headed out to a public natural area for the next scene. The first thing we did was set up a pickup truck in the middle of the quiet road. This road is dubbed ‘Highway to Heaven’ because it looks as if you are driving right into the sky. We set Nathan and Andrea in the back of the pickup, surrounded by cozy blankets.
We decided to take them into the nearby field, where we set down a blanket. The sunset began, and as it moved ever closer to the horizon, it became one of the most beautiful sunsets we’ve ever had the pleasure to photograph. It was what dreams are made of. The quality of light was unbelievable: warm, golden, and picturesque. We spent a lot of time in the field with that spectacular sunset. Harrison with Glass Stone Cinema was along with us. Since his exposure was almost identical to ours, we got the chance to see the rolling movement of the sunset we had photographed. Nathan and Andrea held hands and walked into the sun, which was an amazing way to watch it disappear.
Pickup Truck Horizons
Once the sun was beyond the horizon, we sat the couple back in the pickup truck, overlooking the Albertan farmland. We did a few more shots of them looking out at the beautiful sky before wrapping up the shoot. As a fun finale, we popped a bottle of champagne in the twilight.
The shoot with ‘Absolutely’ was so much fun, and the photographs of the evening turned out great. Caleigh and Ali’s attention to detail is exquisite, and their vision came to life during the session. We hope you all enjoy their amazing images and you check them out for your next event!
