Brandon & I were hiding in the shadows of the church pillars when Young asked Kristen to marry him.
I held my breath for a long time and took literally one photo while Brandon prayed the rosary a pillar away, only hearing hushed whispering from the two nearly (and then newly!) engaged folks a couple pews away. We’re friends with these two and were so honoured to be part of their engagement day, so it made sense to bring Brandon with (for a little camera practice!) for their engagement session! We had the best time walking around Crescent Beach (Blackie Spit, really) getting these two to show their genuine selves (not hard) and bask in the only task at hand: focusing on each other.
It was a date night to connect, refocus, and remember this season of life. The weather reflected the past few months: cloudy during the day, but the most glorious sunset breaking through and chasing away the darkness. These two have fought hard for each other, becoming more like gold through the storms.
What a gift to experience the fruit of their heavenly pursuit.
“Young and I were both talking about how glad we are that we opted for the engagement session. Not only are the images gorgeous, it was just so refreshing to have a few hours where our only job was to connect with each other. Those precious moments are few and far between when inundated with the unending tasks of wedding planning!! Plus it was just really fun to hang with you and Brandon!” – Kristen ♥️
"They are beautiful photos and I think you captured our day perfectly! You were amazing and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, you felt like one of the family! Thank you for making the trip out here, it meant a lot to us!
Thank you Thank you Thank you!"
"But you make them comfortable, too. You move through life with such humility and realness that others can't help but be real in your presence. Being a naturally awkward soul, your patience and easygoing way of taking pictures brings out the best in us!"
“The first time I saw our wedding photos, I felt like I was reliving the day all over again. Looking at them now, I still feel that way. It was a gift to have you as part
of our day, reminding us to focus on the now while capturing moments we
wanted to hold forever. We are so grateful for your gorgeous photos that
help us to keep our wedding day close."
