My first spring engagement photography session is finally here! With the Calgary weather finally warmed up, the grass started growing in and turning green. We all know the Calgary weather is unpredictable, and can even get snow and freezing weather in April. Thankfully, with the hot weather (27 degrees!) during the first week of May, I think it’s safe to say no more snow. Lida and Steve are set to marry very soon, so I’m glad the weekend weather worked perfectly. Albeit a few dark storm clouds that made it’s way in, and rained on us! Thankfully, I carried a black umbrella with me so we wouldn’t get drenched. After ten, fifteen minutes of rain and everyone else scattering, that meant no one was around!

Steve and Lida asked if it’s ok to bring their dog Mocha, and I said of course! As a dog lover, I’m always happy if a client brings their fur baby along as part of their session. He is such an adorable little dog and even wore a little shirt that matched them!

Here are a few photos from their session that day. Soon their wedding will be coming up and I can’t wait to see their spin and all the hard work they put into their wedding.

Normally June would be the rainy month in Calgary, yet it’s July that’s been raining non-stop for two weeks. We already postponed the engagement session once before because of flash floods, and I was scared it would happen on the second time. I kept checking the forecast every hour to see if there would be any thunderstorms in the evening. When I made the call at 3:30pm, it was all clear. Then at 4:30pm it started spitting and dark clouds rolled in. I kept thinking, “omg Kate and Mike are going to kill me for wasting their time coming out here!” By 5 pm when we met up, there were lightning and thunder, so we decided to wait it out and chat about their wedding decor and what calligraphy work I can do for them. Yes, insert shameless plug in, I have a calligraphy and watercolor art business too. 😉

30 minutes later, it stopped raining and we decided to go ahead with the session. After the storm, the trees were so green that it made Kate and Mike pop when they stood against it. I’m so glad we decided to wait it out because there was no one around.

It was such a fun session with these two and I can’t wait until their September wedding.

Autumn’s golden fall leaves are pretty much all gone after the strong windstorm that blew into Calgary over Thanksgiving weekend. When Stephanie and Corbin wanted to get their engagement session with the leaves, we were lucky there were some yellow leaves left in the NW. We staked out our spot and they rocked everything that I told them to do, especially when I told Corbin to piggyback Stephanie and run as fast as he could through the leaves! And then repeat again 🙂

I can’t wait for their summer wedding next year and work with them again!

This engagement session was a ton of fun all because of this laid back couple and I had a blast listening to Robyn’s cute accent. I guessed wrong thinking she was English but she’s from South Africa. It’s one of the places I would love to check off my bucket list to visit!

The evening session was gorgeous with the soft sunlight and golden light all set in a forest-y outdoors setting. It really makes me wish all my sessions could happen during this golden hour 🙂

Here are some of the photos from this awesome couple before they tie the knot in autumn.

Here’s another blog post this week and it features the lovely couple who traveled down from Edmonton to Calgary to visit family and get more wedding planning done.  We squeezed in this session right before my destination wedding to take advantage of the weather and the quiet atmosphere.  I can’t wait for their wedding because they plan to incorporate traditions from their culture and for sure it’ll be colorful and all.
