Echo + Shay | Engaged

Echo + Shay | Engaged

Well I am back after a very busy but wonderful Christmas season and after my family's annual Lake Louise New Years Trip, which was as always fabulous!

I decided to start this year's first blog with one of my most favorite engagement sessions of last fall (yes it appears I am still playing catch up with posts, but better late than never ;)).  My beautiful friend Echo got engaged last fall to the ever handsome Shay.  Seriously, these two are gorgeous!  They met at a church function and as Shay says it was love at first sight and he knew the moment he met her, he would marry her, yeah I kind of melted when he told me this!  After months of dating Shay took Echo on a drive in the rain and pulled over by the river and in his hand was a box of shoes that she had been eyeing.  Echo opened the box only to find a beautiful ring that Shay designed for her on the heel of one of the shoes and right there in the rain he got on one knee and proposed!  Well we all know her answer and I was so excited when they booked me to be their wedding photographer!  

First up was the engagement session, we drove out to Echo's parent's place North of Lloydminster and wow was the landscape in the countryside every beauitful.  They are not far from the river valley and as you will see the area was so fantastic for photos.  I had so much fun photographing these two, they are so in love that it seriously makes my job so easy!  Echo being a true county girl even took off her heels to walk in bare feet across a ridge to this perfect spot with one lone tree, it was farther than we realized but definitely worth the walk!

Here are some of my favorites from the session.  I cannot wait to photograph Echo and Shay's winter wedding this February, you both are so fabulous!
