♥ Banff Engagement portrait - Jeana + Devin ♥
am beyond excited about Jeana & Devin's upcoming fall wedding at The Post Hotel. I was thrilled to get to spend a beautiful evening with the two of them for some engagement portraits around Banff. They have a quiet ease that is calming to be around.
I love that Devin wore his cowboy boots that once belonged to his father for photos. It's so nice when people can incorporate some family history into photographs.
Devin planned a truly romantic proposal for Jeana that involved a matchbox and a fireplace so I had to include a photo of the ring that Devin designed for Jeana with some matches.

♥ Banff Engagement photographer - Gayle + Vince ♥
ayle and Vince planned a wedding in Montreal but wanted some engagement portraits to reflect their home in Alberta and week-ends spent together in the mountains. Gayle has serious skills to climb rocks in her heels and thankfully Vince is such a gentleman to hold her hand and her heels. An afternoon well spent and fondly remembered by me.

♥ Banff Engagement photography - Cheryl + Lance ♥
had never met Cheryl and Lance before their engagement session but they made me feel at ease and in laughter immediately. Cheryl and Lance spend a lot of their time off together snowboarding and being out in the mountains that they call home so we went in search of snow in the middle of April and found not only snow but the most incredible sky and spring day.

♥ Banff Engagement session - Nicole + Brendan ♥
ne of the most joyful parts of my job is getting to photograph a couple's engagement session. It's time that has no schedule, no worries about getting a dress dirty and time for the couple to spend some time focusing on nothing but each other. I always feel incredibly lucky to get to witness love stories in this way. I love getting to know a couple a little bit more before their wedding day and this was especially true when I spent a morning with Nicole and Brendan whose wedding I will get to photograph next summer.

What I loved seeing was how at ease they are with each other and my heart melted when we sat in the car and they showed me pictures of their daughter as they glowed just mentioning her name. They were new parents when we met and had been experiencing many sleepness nights but when they spoke about their daughter all the sleepness nights were forgotten and they beamed.

♥ Moraine Lake Engagement - Simon + Julie ♥
love it when couples find ways to include what they love to do together in their engagement session. Simon and Julie chose Moraine Lake as it's a place they love to hang out and Simon has done extensive hiking in the area. When they have time off you'll find Simon and Julie hiking and camping in the mountains together so it was fitting that they showed up in their hiking boots to a favourite place of theirs.

Perhaps it is because Simon and Julie have spent over a decade living in different countries and cities together or perhaps it is because they share a passion for science, what I found that stood out to me about spending some with Simon and Julie is that they laugh easily together. There is something simply joyful about being around a couple who laughs easily and often with each other. I found myself smiling all evening.
