I met Robin and Kirk last summer when they booked me to shoot their wedding and engagement photos.  We actually tried to shoot these on Monday night but the storm changed our plans.  So last night we went out to Katepwa and tried again.  What a perfectly beautiful night.  Warm, no wind and amazingly.....no bugs.  We also had the perfect location.  We shot at Robin's grandfather's cabin.  Actually her two uncles also have the cabin's beside and the surrounding land so its really a family affair.  Its so pretty down there and since she spent a lot of time their growing up, it was the perfect location for these photos. Kirk and Robin are such a sweet couple and their wedding is going to be totally unique, just like them.  I have to send a special thanks to Kirk for putting up with all my hair brained ideas, lol and to Robin's uncle for coincidentally finding the robins nest that we shot Robin's ring in.  That was meant to be :)

Was that a real birds' nest and eggs? I've heard that birds can smell when a predator (humans) have been in/around their eggs/nest and they will abandon a nest and its eggs if they smell that. Please be careful around wildlife! (Your photos are really nice - I hope you don't think I'm attacking you!)

I know I always say this, but I truly do have the best clients.  I booked the wedding of these two just a month or so ago and liked them right away.  They really seemed to be enjoying planning for a unique wedding that was all about the two of them.  The other night we met for their engagement session.  I met them at their home and while Pam was just finishing up getting ready, Bob was going over the possible places they thought might work for locations.  Little did they know, they were sitting on the best possible location.....their home.  I absolutely loved it so we decided to stay right there, shoot inside a bit, around the grounds and then go for a quick walk on one of the trails that they frequent.  After this shoot I am even more excited to shoot their wedding.  They are such a fun loving and sincere couple and I love how Bob can make Pam laugh so easily.  That bodes well for a great marriage.  Anyway, here are just a small selection of images for their shoot.  Enjoy! 
PS:  on a side note, the one image with the older couple in the background is such a sweet image.  That couple lives a few doors down and has been married for 62 years.  They were more than happy to add to the photo.  So sweet.  Another good omen for a great marriage I'd say.

What a pleasure it was to work with this young couple.  They are getting married this fall and after working with them today, I can't wait for their wedding.  Leah is a nurse and Mitch is in the RCMP. Right now they are living up north so it was a long drive for them to come home for photos.  I'm glad the times worked out and you guys were able to make the trek home.  An extra special thanks for bringing your puppy along.  He was so well behaved and really added to the photos.  Thanks again you two and we will see you in October :)

Well as usual its been a crazy winter weather wise.  But thankfully this past Saturday was an absolutely beautiful day as I had an engagement session to shoot.  Breanna and Cole drove all the way from Brandon, Manitoba for their session so I was so glad that the weather cooperated.  They are such a sweet couple and after working with them, I am even more excited for their wedding this October.  Here's a few images from your session guys.  Enjoy!
PS:  there are a few Rider Green photos which is great now that Breanna has Cole over on our side instead of the Bombers, lol.

Well I have to say I was a bit worried about shooting this engagement session after we got that snow but it turned out awesome.  Allyse and Amit drove out from Fort McMurray and we had an awesome time in the snow.  I absolutely can not wait to shoot their 2 day, Catholic/Hindu wedding next summer.  I was excited as soon as they booked with me, especially since I already knew Allyse, which made things easier.  But then I got to meet Amit.  Now I'm more excited.  What a great young couple.  So nice, so smart and so much fun.  But I am sure you will see that in this post.  I hope you enjoy them.

IMG_8330.jpgNot to be out done....here's the handsome groom.  Looking good Amit!

IMG_8501b.jpgOnly in Saskatchewan can you have an image with green grass, red fall leaves and snow.  Don't you love my little play on words, lol.  I just couldn't resist.

And last but definitely not least, here's a fun shot.  Amit figured that if there was going to be a snowball fight, it wasn't fair to leave out the photographer.  Luckily he missed me but I got this shot.  Not Tiger Woods and the golf ball......Amit and the snowball, lol.

Well after today I can't wait until November.  I know, I know, we've barely just started having summer. Okay, maybe I can wait till summer is over, but I will definitely be looking forward to the wedding of Kristin and Ryan.  We finally got to meet today and do their engagement photos and they are the sweetest couple.  I love Kristin's ability to laugh and Ryan sure seems to make her do that.  Some of my favorite images of the day were the ones where I just caught him making her laugh.  They were so easy to work with and so much fun.  I know their wedding in Melville this winter is going to be a blast.  Thanks again you guys for making the trip to Regina.  Can't wait till we can work together again! :)
