Blaire + Tyler Engaged

I was so honoured when Blaire asked me to be her and Tyler’s wedding photographer. Blaire and I were coworkers back when I was a labour and delivery nurse, and she actually was the nurse that helped bring my son Owen into this world. I think it is so incredibly special that we both will be a part of such milestones in each other’s lives.

We decided on Fort Whyte for the engagements session, and due to extremely bad luck we got one of the coldest days of the year. With this couple consisting of two shift workers, we kept the day and I am so happy we did. These two snuggled up (partially due to necessity for warmth) and laughed together the majority of the session. And can we just take a moment please to appreciate the gorgeous vintage coat Blaire is wearing! I am so grateful she shopped in her future mother in law’s closet just before the session because that coat is EVERYTHING!

Phil + Erin Engaged

As I am gearing up for wedding season I am so happy to finally be getting some engagement sessions up on the blog. Phil + Erin are such a warm, funny and easy going couple, I had such a blast at our consult I felt like we had known each other for such a long time, and their engagement session was no different. Now I honestly can say the three of us were in full blown laughter 80% of the time, and then they were kissing the other 20% (my favourite kind of engagement session). I am so excited to photograph their July wedding at the beautiful and historic Lower Fort Garry. Side note, I love when couples do winter engagement sessions for summer weddings. I also love the location of this session; Whittier Park, not just for sentimental reasons (my husband and I got married at Fort Gibraltar), but because it is just incredibly stunning. The wooden fence around the fort is such a beautiful backdrop for any season, but I especially love the warm feel it has for winter shoots. Fun fact, the park was in full blown construction mode, so we stayed in a small corner of the park but there was such variety in the images you can’t even tell.

Hannah + Rob

I can’t believe its finally starting to feel like spring/summer and I am about to start blogging all of my snowy sessions. This sessions takes us all the way back to very cold November. Hannah + Rob have been married for 3 years at the time of the session, but they couldn’t keep their hands off of each other like newlyweds (which didn’t hurt for warming up). Halfway through the session I (who was dressed in full winter gear) even started to get cold, but these two rocked a tux and gown in the winter cold like champs. I had such a blast with these two and hope our paths cross again soon.
