“Love’s heralds should be thoughts,
Which ten times faster glide than the sun’s beams
Driving back shadows over low’ring hills.
Therefore do nimble-pinioned doves draw Love,
And therefore hath the wind-swift Cupid wings. ” — William Shakespeare
The Engagement Ring and How They Met
Elianna and Giovanni’s love story beings about two and a half years ago when Cupid shot them with his electronic bow and arrow. OKCupid was the app that brought these two lovebirds together. Later on in January 2017, on a memorable Friday, Giovanni proposed in a romantic and intimate way by adorning the house with twinkling candles and surprising Elianna. He gave her a beautiful infinity braided diamond ring to symbolize his own infinite commitment and everlasting love to her. The Di Lullos are a picture perfect romantic couple that love to take walks together or go ice skating. They also have an adorable Havanese dog named Leo to witness their love unfurl daily.
The Engagement Session at Edmonton’s Whitemud ravine park
The lovely couple’s engagement photography session took place by the river in the ravine of Whitemud park, one of Edmonton’s most scenic locations, especially in the springtime. There is truly no better time to capture love at its finest than during spring. Mother nature looked like she has put on her best and most regal outfit just to celebrate the betrothal of two of her children. And truly once more, there is no better place to celebrate Giovanni’s promise of eternal love to his beloved Elianna than outdoors amidst Rainbow Valley’s joyful foliage and peaceful greenery.
We took a walk on a great sunny day, and took some gorgeous pictures of the bride and groom to be. The huddling tree canopies mimicked the couples own loving hugs, while the sneaking sun rays heralded their bright future of married life. Our lens magically captured Elianna and Giovanni’s blossoming love on the trails of Rainbow Valley park; trails that reminded us much of the trails and journeys of life that willed that these two lovely people meet and fall in love. One of our favorite stills of them is a shot on one of the park’s bridges where a hugging Giovanni and Elianna look like they are about to cross over to the next phase of their life that we wish is full of wedded bliss and happiness.
I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph Elianna and Giovanni’s engagement photos and we are really looking forward to joining them on their wedding day.
An online gallery of all their images is available for the next 30 days. From the online gallery, you are able to favorite images, order prints and share the gallery with your family and friends. The gallery can be accessed via the link below and you can contact Elianna and Giovanni directly for their secure password.
It was amazing to work with Elianna and Giovanni to commemorate their engagement and we can’t be more excited to share their final images with them in the coming weeks! You can check out the rest of our work on our blog!
