When these two asked me to photograph their engagement session in Jasper, I knew this was going to make for one amazing adventure! These two are the sweetest couple you could imagine, super kind and so relatable. Not only am I excited to blog this session because how sweet of a couple these two are… but because we got to capture their photos in one of the most beautiful locations here in Canada! Although I have been to the Canadian Rockies many times in my life, I am always still amazed by the beauty of Jasper and the fact that the mountains is such a short distance away from Grande Prairie. Clear blue water, mountains all over and the fresh pine air… they could not have picked a better spot. We even snuck in a gorgeous bouquet made by The Enchanting Bouquet!
What may surprise you is that Jasper was not in original plans for their engagement session location. Vanessa expected she would not see her fiance, Surya, for the next 6 months… However, before Surya leaving to the Dominican for 6 months to pursue his dream playing baseball, he planned to come down to SURPRISE her along with an engagement session. Not too long after the engagement session was booked, Vanessa found out Surya was coming down to visit her. We attempted to convince the session would be held later next winter, but she didn’t believe us. However, it was because Vanessa knew Surya was coming down to visit her before he left for the Dominican, we were able to plan an exciting trip to the mountains for their engagement photos!! I consider that a very good thing! 😉
Our session together was quite the adventure!! We got stuck behind a train, drove to two gorgeous locations and went in ice cold mountain water towards the end of our session. And the best part, almost no mosquitoes! These two were such naturals in front of the camera , and I love how these two braved the cold mountain water with the most gorgeous pink sunset there was – They turned out to be some of my favorites!
Surya and Vanessa, thank you so much for allowing me to capture this exciting season in your life and for asking me to photograph your engagement photos in Jasper. I loved getting to know you two during our time together and I cannot wait to show you some of my favorites. I must admit, I felt a bit sad once our time together was over… you two are just so much fun to be with!! I hope you love these images as much as I do!
