Engagement Session at Banff and Calgary Area

Traveling to Banff and Calgary for these engagement photos! Remember my long time best friend who pulled off a surprise engagement proposal at the Muttart earlier this year? Yes, these two love birds stand in front of my lens again for a formal engagement session this time with a little camping trip on the side! Unfortunately the whether that week changes extremely fast, and rained like crazy! We got to take a few while the rain gave us a break, but I decided to do one more in the heart of downtown Calgary later on in fall, and the result were amazing!

Here I was seriously out of ideas, so I took off my jacket and explained my idea before we ran back into the car.  This session was seriously so much fun! I definitely think photographing engagement sessions in Banff has its challenge. It’s almost impossible to know exactly which spot you want to bring your subject to, and you won’t be able to

I’m obvious excited to have them try out all the spots I have been eyeing for. Photographing the fall scene by the Calgary Peace Bridge, and photographing this engagement photo at the peace bridge were just some of the obvious choices. But wait a minute, what about all the beautiful sky scrapers and urban landscape that Calgary holds? Yes, we went to a little secret spot and found ourselves at the middle section of a giant building with some beautiful reflections.

This whole session all revolved around downtown area, and so I decided to end the day with a little coffee break and buffet for my hungry tummy. When we had the coffee, I seriously could not help but to look at the a way to shoot more photos in the beautiful coffee shopping. So I grabbed a seat with very little customers and snuck a photo or two with them. These two seriously rocked it!!

Merry Go Around Carnival Themed Engagement Photoshoot

So K-Days have began and I have since made lots of plans to shoot a whole lot of things that I envisioned. The day before I worked with a girl and my assistant while planning my route for the couples scheduled to shoot this week. It was seriously a whole lot of work! The crowd and noise was definitely a major issue I had to overcome for my client. I tested this shot in the Merry-Go-Around many times on my own before going for this final product. This couple was super cute and definitely very photogenic! While we were photographing the carousel thunder clouds began to roll in right behind me. At first I thought it was only the fireworks but it turned out to be a full on thunder storm! We finished a few final shots with their friends and the rain began to pour!Calgary Stampede Carnival Themed Photoshoot_0010Calgary Stampede Carnival Themed Photoshoot_0013Calgary Stampede Carnival Themed Photoshoot_0012Calgary Stampede Carnival Themed Photoshoot_0015 Calgary Stampede Carnival Themed Photoshoot_0011Calgary Stampede Carnival Themed Photoshoot_0009 A couple posed in front of a spinning merry go round carousel
