Te Ámo Photography Love Story Contest Winner: Vinnie + Stephen

Earlier this year, I featured a Love Story contest by Te Ámo Photography. Vinnie and Stephen were the lucky couple who won an engagement session with John as well as a feature on Vancity Bride! Congratulations you two and I must say your photos look awesome! So happy the weather held up for you! Before I get to the photos, have a look at Vinnie and Stephen’s super sweet love story.

In October of 2009, Stephen and Vinnie met through mutual friends. Stephen knew it was a set-up, Vinnie did not (until a year later!). On a Tuesday night in November of 2009, Stephen drove Vinnie to Iona Beach at 9pm, where they first hung out alone. They were to go on their very first official date later that same week, but Stephen said to her that night, “I knew I couldn’t wait until Friday to see you again.” In July of 2010, they drove back there to discuss their futures and to make a very important decision – whether or not Vinnie was to move to Toronto to attend Ryerson for graduate school. She decided to stay in Vancouver and attend UBC, just as he chose to stay in Vancouver with her a few months prior, when he had a job offer in Winnipeg. On Christmas Eve of 2011, Stephen proposed at the same spot at Iona Beach at sunset. She said yes!
