ENDURING LOVE

Unique engagement photos

January 14, 2016

This is such an exciting time of year.  So many couples are newly engaged and are planning for their engagement and wedding photos.  Even yesterday I was fortunate enough to meet with a couple to plan for their August wedding in Canmore.  If you fall into that category and are looking for unique engagement photos, then this post is just for you.  I spent a lot of time photographing people in love in 2015, during engagement sessions and couple shoots.  Here are a few of my favourites with a sprinkling of inspiration for every season.

Winter

Just in time for a holiday card, I met up with Stephanie and Chris for Christmas photos, complete with a few festive touches.

For my first engagement session of 2015, I met Megan and Kurtis near Mount Yamnuska.

Kari and Derek celebrated a romantic Christmas in Banff for a feature on Canadian Mountain Chic.  The handcrafted “meet me under the mistletoe” sign is by Naturally Chic.

Unique engagement photos in summer

Kellie and Ryan sipped on lattes and snuggled on the banks of the Elbow River for their summer engagement session.  A taste of good things to come…

Love in the Rockies.  I met Christine and Cody at Lake Agnes for a mountain hike.

The light that night on the Elbow river was absolute perfection.  Add inner tubes and a happy couple and it really was one of my favourite shoots of 2015.
