Kananaskis is by far my favourite place in the Rockies to shoot. I love the quietness in comparison to Canmore or Banff, and it really likes to show off during the fall months. When I suggested Barrier Lake for Lydia + Josh's engagement session, Lydia said she instantly welled up. This was the location she spent some time at after a bad breakup and now she's returning five years later with her person for life. Pretty meant to be if you ask me.
Lydia first reached out to me back in January 2019 and I knew from the get go I'd love her, so when September finally rolled around for their engagement session, I was so excited to finally meet face to face. In most cases, I've already met my couples before the engagement shoot during their consultation. But in this case, L + J live in Edmonton and booked without meeting (wow thank you). My initial impression was correct because honestly within minutes, I already felt so comfortable and as if we'd known each other for months. I love the goofiness and joy these two share. They really didn't hold back one bit and let their personalities shine which makes my job so easy.
I'm just so stinkin' excited for them to get married in Ontario this summer!!!
