Snowy Winter Engagement | David + Rebekah

   If you are anything like me right now you are currently taking this Sunday afternoon easy. Curled up in a blanket, eating freshly baked biscuits with a cup of red raspberry leaf tea (okay that one might just be for the prenatal mamas). I'ts been a slower paced winter as I prepare for my babe to enter this world. He or she could be here potentially in just over a week from now! Or in three weeks.. If baby really wants to wait until the due date. Which gives me just enough time to send out the last of my sessions.

    This snowy engagement was full joy which has been a theme of my life lately.  Seeking out the joy, choosing to focus on the good when life doesn't seem to be offering it freely. It was deceivingly cold outside with the wind chill, but these two beautiful souls couldn't be bothered by the cold. Their love overflows, their kindness radiates and I have a feeling this encounter happens with everyone they meet. David and Rebekah's wedding will be one of the first I will photograph this spring. I feel honoured to be able to witness their day so close and personally. Here are a few of my favourites from their collection.

Sunrise Session

Well we have one more day left to pray for the snow to come before Christmas. In the meantime I feel it is still fitting to share this beautiful fall sunrise session from October. Our lovely Model Maja looked so graceful in one of the most amazing Leanne Marshall gowns. The colour perfectly complemented the fall scenery and the warm sun as is flooded light over the horizon. Everything came to completion with one of Ponderosa and Thymes brilliant floral creations using vibrant tones juxtaposed with dried foraged neutrals.
