Beatriz and Shaun are a fun and silly couple, who have bonded over their mutual love for coffee! It was only natural for us to include a Banff coffee shop in their engagement photos. These two are having their wedding in Calgary next month, and since they are not from the area, Banff seemed like a great choice for their engagement location. I was also mostly excited about touring them around to some of my favorite spots in the area, too, including the awesome Evelyn’s Coffee Bar – which is an iconic cafe in Banff.
When I asked Shaun about how they met, he replied, “We met at work. She was friendly and seeing that I was new to the city, invited me out to fun activities. I tried to play it cool, but she saw right though me.”
Shaun also mentioned other common interests that he and Beatriz share, which include seeking out new experiences. They like to travel, eat at new places and have adventures. Sometimes that adventure is just staying in and watching a movie. “But it’s never boring,” he says. That’s so cute! :)
I asked them to share a special memory with me. Shaun writes, “It was my first new year’s eve in the city. I didn’t have any plans, but was too embarrassed to admit it. Suddenly I got a call from her, inviting me to come out with her friends. She insisted I come out so I said yes. When I arrived at her apartment, one of her friends opened the door and let me in. Then she came around the corner and looked absolutely stunning, even more than usual. That night was a blur of parties and people, but I will always remember just talking with her that night, trying to say clever things to this intimidating, beautiful spirit.”
It was such a lovely time getting to know these two, and I can’t wait for their big day next month!
