Not that long ago, we were all sitting at Jeffery’s Cafe, chatting about all the exciting plans ahead for Kim’s and Jerrica’s big day. As we sat together, I found out that they had nearly been 9 years together. Only 10 minutes into getting to know these two, I already knew how perfect these two are for each other. They told me all about how they first met at work, in the Philippines, then dated long distance across the world for a full year. How Kim surprised Jerrica with flower petals, chocolate, but more importantly, a shiny new ring that would change their lives forever!
Since the first day we met, Kim & Jerrica made it very clear they wanted their engagement portraits in the Canadian Rockies, shot by the crystal clear blue water. A couple months later, I received the news that Kim and Jerrica had to postpone their 9th year anniversary/wedding to a later date, in hopes to celebrate their special day with more family and friends. So what did we do on their 9th year anniversary / wedding date, instead? We all packed our bags, traveling to one of those beautiful places in the world, to capture their engagement portraits… in Banff! There couldn’t have been a better way to celebrate their original wedding date AND 9th year anniversary, all at the same time.
Everything about their engagement session was so beautiful, in so many ways. Jerrica had a fresh bouquet of flowers made by the talented Willow Flower Co, a dusty blue skirt (snagged from my client closet) and perfectly coordinated outfits to pop against the scenic Lake Minnewanka location in Banff. Above all, what stood out to me the most, was Kim’s and Jerrica’s love and commitment for one another. Over the last few months, so much has changed with our current covid situation. But what didn’t change is how deeply in love these two are, and that’s all I needed to make these portraits happen!
Kim and Jerrica, you two are the sweetest! I loved every minute having you in front of my camera, for your 9 year anniversary-engagement, and it makes me even more excited for your Millwood Country Inn wedding, in just a few more months. Here are some of my favorites from our time together, in the mountains. I hope you love them as much as I do!!
