Krista and Brian – Sault Ste Marie Engagement Shoot

Here’s Krista and Brian’s engagement shoot from the middle of January. The Sault was just hit hard with a big snow storm the night before and it was continuing through the morning of their shoot. Talking back and forth with Krista on whether we should reschedule or if they would go out and brave the storm Krista said “Lets do this. It’s Canada.” This was a small poke at Brian as well because he’s American and us Canadians take out toughness in the cold wintery conditions seriously.

I met up with Krista, Brian and their dog Jovi at Fort Creek Conversation Area. The snow was thick and made walking a little bit tough but we powered through. Someone may or may not have started to complain about the cold near the end of the shoot but both Krista and Brian were awesome throughout.

Thanks for the great morning guys!

Koy – Dog’s Life

Here’s Koy’s Dog’s Life session from a little earlier in the winter. We never featured a sneak peek from this session because the session and photos themselves were done sneaky sneaky as a surprise gift for Koy’s mom. Yes I call those of us who have dogs in their lives parents and my three dogs are my boys – I’m one of those people. Doing the session outside with a dog off leash is never easy, especially when the slightest of sounds or smells can distract them. We did lose Koy’s attention a couple of times as she ran off into the trees jumping through the snow. Luckily I had Blair outside helping me keep Koy occupied and probably did more work overall than Koy and myself combined – but that’s what helpers are for right?

Hope you enjoyed the surprise Kelsey!

May and Mark – Sault Ste Marie Engagement Shoot

Another shoot from the fall hitting the site this time featuring May and Mark on their engagement shoot. We were able to use the main grounds at the Soo Locks as Mark got us the special permission as he used to work at the site. And with that simple piece of information I’m making a segue into how Mark actually proposed (trust me, I’ll get there after my mini winded babble). Now guys, this will make the most of us look like putzes and girls this may make a number of you jealous. You see, Mark preplanned most of the wedding before even proposing to May, including me. I wasn’t aware of this until I received an email from Mark about a month before his actual proposal asking about a good time for doing the engagement shoot as he was planning to propose shortly and wanted to do the session soon after the proposal. I took a second and did one of those “wait a minute, you’re not even engaged yet!” type of replies and wished him the best of luck. Mark ended up having May come and meet him one night after work where he had everyone else leave the site and had a romantic private dinner waiting for her in the Superintendent’s Residence. BOOM proposal. So with the residence being the actual location of the proposal it made the perfect location for their engagement session. We worked around the residence and the gardens and then made our way over to the islands where we ran into some fisherman coming back from a day of fishing. It’s always awesome when you have random people join in the shots as it helps grab some of those crazy moments that happen while we’re out there.

Thanks for the awesome night guys!
