It was around 9:00pm on January 9th, when a notification popped up in my Facebook messenger… I clicked on the message and there layed a beautiful selfie of Zack and my step-sister, Jillian, with a shiny new ring on her finger… They were ENGAGED!! I jumped for joy because I was just so happy that these two highschool sweethearts are now getting married. Seconds later, Jillian asked if I would be their wedding photographer, and of course I said yes!!
A few weeks later, I drove to Edmonton and shot their engagement session at the Woodbridge Park with their sweet dog, Willow. We started our weekend celebrating Jillian’s birthday, full of good food and playing our new favorite card game. Whenever we get together for Christmas or camping trips in the summertime, playing cards is one of our favorite things to do together!
Then the next day, it was time for their engagement session!!! The day was windy, but perfectly cloudy with a hint of light shining through. Whenever I shoot a windy engagement session, it can be easy to feel like things are getting out of control. But, with my creative vision, I can ALWAYS make any photo look beautiful because I use that wind to our advantage, creating images full of joy and laughter! I was especially excited because we were capturing some beautiful Pantene commercial worthy images. Shooting at Woodbridge Park was truly a unique, beautiful location! There was a burgundy barn, light grass on the edge of the frozen pond and a nice path to walk on. Jillian and Zach were holding hands and smiling at each other with their sweet dog, Willow. It was so sweet getting to capture photos with all three of them, together!
Zack and Jillian, your love for each other shines through your engagement photos and I feel so honored that you choose me to capture your happy memories!!! I am really looking forward to seeing you two get married… and the daddy-daughter first look, I know it’s all going to be so sweet! Enjoy a few of my favorites and get excited for their gorgeous fall wedding. It will be here before we know it!
