Lindsei + James

I know what you’re thinking. How did the snow fall so perfectly?! How is this even a real couple?!
I am thinking the exact same thing as you; it all is almost too good to be true. Now add the anticipation of taking off on a plane with these two to Los Cabos to capture their wedding day!
Yep, in less than a month I will be in the stunning landscapes of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, capturing their love. Definitely a polar (ha!) opposite than what their engagement photos are but equally as photogenic!

Kylie + Ryan

Fall had just started to hit the trees in Manitoba, so Kylie, Ryan, their cute Australian Shepherds and Myself took a road trip to the lake! We began the session on top of a large rock overlooking a lake in the Whiteshell. After canoeing in the water and playing with the puppies, we watch the sun set from the dock. It was absolutely gorgeous!

Brigitte + Aaron

 

This session was crazzyyyy!!!
We started the first portion of our evening with a strenuous sweat bath thanks to the incline of the 2 hour trail! Yes, they are kind of an unreal couple.
Then we took advantage of this beautiful golden hour on one of the craziest peaks!! (This elevation for Manitoba is seriously golden, ponyboy).
I had to stop myself from taking endless shots as we were on a strict time schedule. We knew we didn't want to be hiking back in the dark. This was the case for the most part at least! The hike back was much easier as it involved a downhill hustle, the annoying ringing of my bear bell attached to my camera bag and many trips on the roots that suck out from the ground. Though we didn't get quite out of the woods before dark, we did make it back to the parking lot to enjoy that 24 pack of water awaiting us. 
I will say one thing that picked up the pace on the way back was the jolting of a bat at my face. It happened so fast and it hit my neck on its way down, just enough for me to say "holy sheeeet" and it's a miracle how my legs went from feeling like mush to a marathon runner in a heartbeat!

 

Yle + Juan

 

I had the pleasure of meeting Yle and Juan for the first time at Snoqualmie Falls, WA. I was following Yle's brand through Instagram, @cuckoo_b which is also featured in our session. It was so much fun getting to know the two and their experiences since moving to North America. One of the most fashionable and genuine couples I know! Go check out Yle's brand, Cuckoo B!!!

 

Lauren + Devan

 

I met Lauren and Devan for the first time on this hike. We met up in the parking lot and headed into woods to our  destination. Devan could depict which plants were going to be blueberries in the next month and Lauren talked about how great of a cook he is. They brought this beautiful picnic basket with a sandwich for me (which must have been the best sandwich I've ever had; thanks Dev!) 
I was most excited for this session because of the enthusiasm I picked up on messaging Lauren prior. She pointed out she was a huge fan of my work, they let me pick the location and then she stayed in touch about which outfits she was going to wear. She ended up making a gorgeous flower crown for the white, flowing dress she bought. 
These two were so easy to enjoy the night with! Also, if you're ever in need of a graphic designer, Lauren's your girl!
