Gilles & Katie | Grande Prairie Wedding Photographer | Kayla Lynn Photography

I have been really loving all the fall sessions, recently! This fall season has been the best fall of my career, with the golden leaves in full display for over a month now! Living in Grande Prairie, this is very rare. Although we booked Gilles’s and Katie’s engagement session in the second week of October, I was excited to know we’d still be getting an abundance of creamy, golden colors in their photos. We got a mixture of red berries, burnt orange leaves and creamy golden grass with a hint of sunlight in their photos. Pair this all up with this lovely, It was perfection. 

Katie was one of the bridesmaids at my cousin’s wedding a couple years ago, so I was excited to find out that they wanted to hire me as their wedding photographer! I always love it when I get to work with brides and grooms whom I already know. Shortly after receiving their wedding photography inquiry email, we hopped on a video call and they told me about all of their fun plans – They told me all about their acreage wedding they will be planning and their sweet proposal story. Through that time, we connected so well and I knew we were all going to be such a great fit! 

Gilles and Katie have such a sweet proposal story. Last January, Gilles surprised Katie with a photo session. As they went on through the photo session, that is when Gilles got down on one knee and proposed to her! Gilles put so much thought into their proposal and it was so nice knowing that it was all captured on camera, too.

Gilles and Katie, thank you for having me capture your love for each other. You two make it so easy and it’s making me extra excited for your big day! I really enjoyed every second of our time together. I can’t wait to capture more for you on your wedding day!! Enjoy some of my favorites!
