He already knew what her dream proposal was, no need for custom ideas with this one! Fatimah's dream was to take a helicopter to the top of a mountain and be proposed to surrounded by snow and fresh mountain air!
Absolutely made Fatimah's dream come true - the tricky part was executing her dream and ensuring she'd be surprised. Absolutely reached out to her best friend and sister to have all hands on deck. Absolutely and Rizwana, Fatimah's best friend worked on a script she would say to Fatimah. When ready, Rizwana called Fatimah, excited she had won a prize at work: a helicopter ride! The catch? They would be accompanied by a photography and videography team to capture content for their website the day of. Next, we reached out to Hamidah. Fatimah's sister to take her out for a sister-date at the spa. They would be getting their hair and nails done.
With all the pieces of the puzzle set, we needed to swap Rizwana for Hanif and make it believable. We instructed Rizwana, to call in sick the morning of the proposal and to have the team onsite in on it. We worked with everyone involved, the team at Alpine Helicopters Inc., our photographer, Jeremy Martel at JM Photography and our videographer, Harrison Burton with Glass Stone Cinema to act confused when the couple arrived. When Hanif and Fatimah arrived, the Alpine Helicopters Inc. crew mentioned they had thought it would be two women, Fatimah explained how her friend, Rizwana had caught the flu and that her boyfriend Hanif would fill her spot. Next, the couple was mic'd up by our videographer and again he mentioned he thought that he was filming two women - "not to worry," he instructed "we will make this work!"
Hanif, Fatimah, Harrison and Jeremy all attended a safety demonstration before boarding the helicopter. They took a beautiful flight through Marvel Pass before landing on the top of a mountain. When landed, Hanif couldn't wait to pop the question and when he did, she said "Absolutely!" Jeremy and Harrison captured it all! The day proceeded with a full engagement shoot atop the mountain and then again below at the Alpine Helicopter Inc. base. It was a short drive to the second location, Quarry Lake, Canmore AB. After the photoshoot, Hanif and Fatimah enjoyed the day in Banff and Canmore before enjoying a romantic couples massage.
