Remember that cold snap we had this year? Well, this session was right at the beginning when we didn't know any better. It was so stinking cold. But Jaden and Tyler still nailed this shoot. It helps when you get to frolick with your best friend right?
The session was all around the Old Strathcona and Whyte Avenue area in Edmonton. There are so many hidden treasures here with so many interesting shapes , textures and colours. It is a photographer's dream and a blast to explore. We also found ourselves stopping in to warm up a few times, including Block 1912 and Wee Book Inn.
Jaden and Tyler remind me a lot of my younger self and I am so thankful that our paths crossed! They are clearly each other's best friends and have a rich history together. It was such a fun afternoon!
Congratulations you guys! I can not wait for your July, Edmonton wedding.
By the way, I will be your third wheel any day of the week. Just saying.
Patricia and Monty met me downtown on Jasper Avenue, Edmonton at Remedy Cafe for their engagement session. This was the first time I had met them as they were on a bit of a time crunch ! They planned their wedding in 2 months. Wow. I could barely do it in 8.. so props to them!
We spent the hour walking downtown Edmonton, making our way to whatever beautiful space we stumbled upon including a quick stop to the Alberta Legislature and some pretty side gardens and intimate spaces. We also stumbled upon a gorgeous space with golden hour light starting to stream through. It was perfect!
Thank you to Patricia and Monty for having me as part of their day! Be on the lookout for their wedding photos, coming to the blog very soon!
What I always tell clients when we meet for a shoot is that if you are having fun and enjoying just being together, it is going to translate on camera. It is going to give the photos life and tell your story. This shoot is the perfect example of that. Randi and Keith know how to have fun. It shows.
We toured downtown Edmonton along the River Valley in July last year on a very hot evening! But we caught some beautiful golden hour light in the end and it was MAGICAL. Of course, now they are on their magical honeymoon in New Zealand so.. magical could be an overstatement here. But WOW. It was beautiful.
