Tony and Kayla have been married now for just over two and a half sweet years. I had the privilege to attend their wedding back in 2017 and it was nothing less than elegant and one of the best parties. These two ALWAYS know how to plan a good time and are such a fun and down to earth couple to hang out with.
When we were planning for their session we wanted to include some extra props for fun. This is always something fun to do cause it tends to make couples focus less on their nerves in front of the camera and more on their significant other/the activity with the prop. In this case, we figured what’s better than a good bottle of bubbly? So on our way out to the Crowsnest Pass we pit stopped in a small town called Pincher Creek to grab some of the goods.
It was a brutally windy day and everything was still frozen and snow-covered but these two were absolute troopers as we adventured for some sweet little photo spots! And thankfully we had the bubbly to warm up our spirits mid-session!
I LOVED being able to capture these two because they have such a real and genuine love for life and life with each other. They can go from running like a couple of good-looking goof balls to sharing such sweet intimate moments. I asked the two of them to share some of the things they were most proud of the other for and it was so precious to witness them reflecting and sharing those things with each other. You could see the appreciation and honor they have for one another in every way.
Being able to shoot couples is a privilege enough, but shooting couples who are so entirely comfortable with one another and utterly in love is a whole other playing field of its own and one of my absolute FAVOURITE things to have the opportunity to document. Tony and Kayla are so sweet on each other and watching them bounce off each other’s joy is a joy of its own.
We spent the majority of our session finding new little spots tucked away off the highway, one spot being Lundbreck Falls – an incredible spot to view and explore around. After all the popping of champagne and taking of pictures, we finished the day by grabbing some cinnamon buns from the Cinnamon Bear Cafe just off Hwy. 3. It was the perfect way to finish off a cold and cozy winter mountain session.
