I met Audrey and Ryan in the mountains of Kananaskis Country for their engagement session. We were so fortunate to catch such beautiful golden light and a perfect autumn day. They plan to marry next year in Audrey's home province of Quebec, but since they met and fell in love in Alberta, they felt it was only fitting to have portraits taken here to mark their engagement. It was the first time they'd been photographed as a couple, and also their first experience doing a professional shoot. I always feel lucky and grateful to take portraits of people who are new to being in front of the camera, as it's my honour and privilege to make them feel cozy and confident. As you'll see, they are both highly photogenic and looked completely natural and comfortable being photographed. They let their love shine through any apprehension they may have felt. In other words, we had a fabulous time!

Audrey and Ryan, I wish you so much happiness and all the best as you plan your beautiful wedding in Quebec City. I know it will be spectacular! Special thanks to Gina for sending these sweethearts my way.
