Andrew + Jen | Alberta Engagement

Just five minutes from meeting up with Jenn and Andy - for the first time I might add - to shoot their engagement session, I called them up and said, "how do you feel about a road trip out to the badlands?" Like music to my ears, they were up for a sudden change of plans and said, "that would be amazing!!"

One of the things I love most about shooting outside of the Nashville area (and all the way up in Alberta, Canada, this time!) is the change of scenery, and it wasn't until this past trip back home to Central Alberta that I realized how incredibly rich the landscape is! During my two weeks up North I shot in Drumheller's arid badlands, the majestic Rocky Mountains, and by lakes that are bluer than you could ever imagine - each place taking my breath away! 

Jenn and Andy's photos were taken out in Drumheller - the dinosaur capital of the world - and we had so much fun swapping stories, sharing our favorite music, and stopping the vehicle whenever we found a perfect spot to shoot - a memorable afternoon, to be sure! 

Much love to these two - XO

Shawn + Shaun-Elise | Anniversary | Alberta, Canada

I grew up with this beauty, and it made me so happy to have been a part of my cousin Shaun-Elise's anniversary day with her handsome man this year!

Being that we spent much of our time together as kids by lakes, it was rather fitting that we went out to Jarvis Bay at Sylvan Lake to shoot. The water was glassy while the sun set through storm clouds - it couldn't have made for a more romantic vibe for their anniversary shoot! 

Love you guys - XOXO

HAD TO GET AN UPDATED COUSIN PIC IN THE MIX OF IT - props to Shawn for being a stellar photographer for a hot second ;-)

Mike + Genevieve | Engagement | Banff

The Rockies, a fresh snow-fall, and two friends who love each other made for the most wonderful afternoon in the freezing, but oh-so-gorgeous, frost-tipped mountain ranges in Banff, Alberta.
