Dang these two are cute. We lucked out with an incredibly beautiful evening at the Old Pinawa Dam. We had a ton of fun galavanting around the ruins, falls and rocks. It’s such a beautiful location. These two claimed to be super akward in front of the camera but I didn’t believe them for a second and it turned out I was right…they were lying. They absolutely killed it. Don’t assume you’re not photogenic until you’ve been photographed by a professional. It’s different than your mom’s iPhone photoshoots. Trust me. ANYWAY, check out these cuties rocking their engagement session like models…enjoy!
David & Angelica live in Calgary, but they were planning for a wedding in Winnipeg, so when I mentioned that I could do their engagement session in Banff this spring, they were sold. It was perfect. We did a sunrise engagement session at Lake Minnewanka and the views did not disappoint! After some galavanting on the rocks beside those beautiful clear blue waters, we headed to a lookout spot on the side of a mountain overlooking the town of Banff. David and Angelica were ready with some dance moves that they were working on for their first dance and what better place to practice than here! We were also joined by some wildlife and you can see a pack of mountain sheep making their way across the background of some of their photos. Enjoy!
I love it when my clients are willing to think outside of the box, or in this case, outside of the province! Katie & David were totally game when I put out the word that I wanted to do a couple of shoots in Banff this spring. You all know that I love the adventure of travelling and exploring new places. It definitely fuels my creativity and these two reaped the benefits! We had so much fun galavanting through these beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains for their engagement session. If you’re ever in Banff, Alberta, I highly recommend checking out Two Jack Lake! We did this session in late May and a lot of the other lakes were still 80% frozen but Two Jack was ready to show off it’s dazzling clear blue waters. Enjoy!
Sometimes photo shoots don’t go quite as planned and instead of a nice warm desert shoot on the cliff, you get a snowstorm and zero visibility! BUT even though it’s not what we had imagined, it was beautiful and fun and adventurous in it’s own way. Back in March, I had the pleasure of attending the Rooted Workshop in Moab, Utah. It was amazing to get to know a bunch of other female photographers like myself and to explore a brand new place. We collaboratively shot three styled sessions in the desert and while this may have been the coldest one, I thought the snow just added that much more dimension to the photos. Enjoy!

Jake & Ineke won a give-away that I did with White Fox Videography!! We were going to be in Sydney, Australia at the same time for a wedding and really wanted to do a couples session on the beach together as well so Kyra put out the word and this lovely couple won!! They hadn’t had an engagement session so this was so perfect for them! We had the best evening and the sunset was seriously out of this world. This session is everything I pictured when I imagined a beach session in Australia. Enjoy!
When you have a cabin on a private island on a beautiful lake, it’s kind of a no-brainer to do your engagement session there. I wanted to stay forever. These two and their pup hopped on paddle boards for a bit and we ended the session with some gorgeous shots that I took from a kayak. Enjoy!
Lindsey & Marshall opted for an exchange district engagement session even though he’s a farmer and she’s from the country as well! It’s definitely a change from their usually scene and we had a lot of fun exploring and walking the streets of Winnipeg. They totally rocked it. Enjoy!
Mark & Gillian asked for suggestions for their location for their engagement session and I immediately suggested a few places FAR from Winnipeg. lol. They were like YES!!! The Old Pinawa Dam was their favourite suggestion so we headed out there and basically just explored and frolicked around on the rocks for an hour. These two were such a blast and I’m really looking forward to their wedding at the end of December!
We started off with a plan. We loaded the canoe, and headed to the rock quarry that always had this beautiful, clear, blue water and limestone and forest all around. But you should have seen our faces when we showed up the the whole quarry was completely dried up. But Steve and Leah are just the type of couple that can make the most of any situation, so we told the story, and took photos in the dried up quarry. We had some fun with it and then headed out to find some other body of water to use. In the end, this shoot became a favourite. Adventurous, fun and romantic. Just the way I like em’.
Hunt Lake Trail in the Whiteshell was the perfect location for Mercedes & Zach's engagement session. It rained right up until we started the shoot leaving everything fresh and green and beautiful. We had so much fun hiking, chatting and snapping photos along the way. The evening ended with the most beautiful cotton-candy sunset over the lake. Enjoy!
