I am SOOOO excited about this session and let me tell you why. Not only did they pick the perfect location but they were amazing models. They fought off the many (and I mean many!) mosquitos swarming us in the off paths but they were so game for any pose and idea that I directed them with. It was a great night collaborating on ideas and poses with one another - which made for a really fun and creative night! I was over-the-moon when my brother and future sister-in-law asked me to photograph their engagement - I was truly honoured and excited to photograph them!
Being only my brother and I growing up, we had our fair share of arguments but then one of us would end up cracking a joke and all of a sudden we were good again. I’ve really learned to appreciate the person he is. He’s always been protective, gracious and takes time to care for the needs of others. He truly is an amazing big brother and I’m lucky to be his little sis. Did I mention that he’s a doctor?! (Honestly I love to brag about his profession!) He is incredibly intelligent and takes time to research and understand things. He is the most hilarious person I know and still the funniest person I know to this day. We always seem to find the same silly TikTok videos hilarious - he will often be found quoting it over and over and I’ll be found hysterically laugh at it every single time.
What can I say about my future sister-in-law but only the most amazing things! She’s truly beautiful inside and out and if you’ve ever met her, you know how true that is. She’s incredibly caring, empathetic, hilarious, fun, easy going, always down for adventure, one of the kindest people you will ever meet in your life - and the list honestly goes on and on and on! When I first met her, I felt loved and accepted right away. She welcomes anyone in and cares for them deeply. She truly cares for what’s happening in people’s lives and takes time to listen. She is thoughtful and honestly the most wonderful person. I couldn’t be more excited to have her officially in the fam!
I'm amazed at the scenery around in and around Calgary. I’ve lived here for only a little over a year and every time I’m shocked that this kind of scenery is in a city (like what the heck!). The special thing about this place for these two was the fact that they went here on their first date and once they told me that, I couldn’t say no! I location scouted a bit before the session to get some inspiration and I was blown away at the multiple spots that we could take photos - it was almost never ending! The weather was perfect (except for those dang mosquitos) and I was so happy with the light coming through the trees at the end. It was a beautiful peaceful night with amazing weather and company!
Congrats Aaron + Jenny on your engagement and I can’t wait to party hard with you next year at your wedding <3
