I am so pleased to finally share this engagement session here on the blog!
For the longest time, I have had this desire to work with a couple who would be willing to do a canoe based engagement session in the mountains. When I first met with Tara Lyn (TL) and Steve, I couldn't have been more pleased when they asked me if I would be willing to do an engagement session involving their favorite past time, canoeing. I wasted no time in saying yes, and getting to work on how we would do it.
We planned the canoe session to take place on Vermillion Lakes, near Banff town site. We had 2 canoes, one they maned, and another for myself with a lovely individual who steered for me while I took photos. The evening was perfect! Warm, calm waters, next to no wind and an absolutely beautiful couple to photograph. It was everything I dreamed it would be and more... They also requested some photos that would involve their beloved pet, Kula. I was more than happy to oblige. For this session, TL brought in the exceptional talents of make up artist Jenna Anderson of Canmore & Banff Makeup. If you ever need a makeup artist, look no further. Her work speaks for itself!
I often find myself feeling incredibly grateful with the clients I am blessed to work with, and these two are one of the reasons why. We met as strangers, and after working together, we became fast friends. I can hardly wait to show their incredibly loving wedding that took place at The Canmore Nordic Centre later on that summer. What a gift to be a part of their wedding, and to explore new terrain in the engagement department. Thank you from the bottom on my heart TL and Steve for being so open, so encouraging and a privilege to work with. xo
