Desiree and Kyle’s engagement session was one of those one-off unlikely days where everything came together perfectly. We booked the May session way back in November, hoping timing would work out, and it did right down to the sunset mountain views we had imagined. They were getting married in Edmonton, but wanted to come out to the mountains to get some photographs taken as a couple beforehand.
We met out at the south end of Talbot Lake a little ways northeast of Jasper, and proceeded to go for a little hike up Edna’s knoll. We hit it off right away and had a great time. I was so impressed by their ability to just simply embrace the experience of being together in the great outdoors, completely wrapped up in eachother’s arms, and forget about the giant lenses that we were hovering around their faces. The combination of their participation, the spectacular scenery, and the gorgeous lighting, were a recipe for a very memorable experience. A great many thanks also go to Ashley Kennedy, who joined me for the first time as an assistant/second shooter, for making it all that much more enjoyable for everyone. We’ve had the pleasure of documenting a number of stories together since, and I am excited to share those in the near future.
I hope these photographs help to stir up your adventurous mountain spirit. For me, they provide so many beautiful reminders of why my clients and I love Jasper so much.
