Finding beauty in the imperfect is what I’ve really been loving lately. Now, you are going to look at Ceone and Patrick and you are going to think… “Ummm, Heather! These two are perfection!”.
I agree. These two are beauties, inside and out.
BUT… they were happy to let the wind blow in their faces, to let Ceone’s hair blow all over the place, to let the cold water splash on them, pretend those rocks were the most comfortable sofa, and be alright with the fact that the sun fell behind the clouds before we were ready for it to. Sometimes, expectations are not met. We have an idea about how we would like things to end up, but it doesn’t always work that way. We wanted that beautiful Okanagan sunlight. We got it, but only briefly.
This engagement session is proof that when you just let the things you don’t have control over, unfold… beautiful things can happen!
Embrace the imperfections. Be affectionate. Let the love happen!
Happy engagement Ceone and Patrick!
Who doesn’t love a good road trip?
Even though I am a Kelowna wedding and engagement photographer, I am lucky enough to get to travel all over the land to magical places to photograph couples in love. Adam and Alannah met me in Revelstoke for their engagement session. It was a rainy, cold, cloudy day. A beautiful, rainy, cold, cloudy day. I love backlighting in portraits, but sometimes, a change in weather is just what I need to make me extra excited about an engagement session.
We started along the water and ended up atop a mountain. After all was said and done, we stopped in at the cutest little cafe called Modern Bakery. So much yum under one roof!
After hanging out with these two for most of the day, I couldn’t be more excited about their September wedding at 50th Parallel Winery!
Here are Lizz & Kevin!
These two sweethearts met on the set of a music video – I kid you not! Lizz was a little worried about the sketchy surroundings, but thankfully, she got over that and they’ve been together ever since!
Many (most) of my clients are from out of town – Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton… and come to Kelowna for their engagement sessions. I thought I would shake things up a bit, so Lizz, Kevin, and myself met in Vancouver for their session while I was there for my son’s soccer tournament. They brought their gal, Luna, who definitely stole the show at the end of the session.
We weren’t in luck with the weather, but despite the rain, we went out and got soaked. The session was cut short for a few reasons – rain and camera gear don’t love each other and also, we were COLD.
Lizz – I hope you took Kevin for new boots on the way home, and I hope your legs weren’t dyed blue afterwards, either!
Enjoy these rainy photos!
