Spruce Coulee Engagement | Cypress Hills, Alberta

August 28, 2018

Engagement photos are definitely one of my favourite types of sessions, and the fact that Shawna is my mom’s best friend and has known me since, well, before I was born only makes this one that much more special! It’s never too late to find your soulmate, and with these two it’s easy to see that is exactly what they are. Tanner is such a sweet guy and I could not be more happy for the two of them, or more excited for their wedding because of course my mom is going to be a bridesmaid!!

For this shoot we headed out to Spruce Coulee in Cypress Hills, and did some exploring around trails I had yet to traverse. Along the way we came across the most beautiful light peeking through the trees, so naturally we stopped to take full advantage. That’s why I love adventure sessions so much, you never know what you might find! Especially out in the stunning wilderness that is Cypress Hills. Then when it was getting closer to sunset we headed down to the dock where we could see a beautiful reflection in the still lake water. All in all, this summer evening was pretty much perfect.

For those who enjoy camping I would definitely suggest taking a trip out here! There is so much to explore – I would love to take a canoe out to see how far the water goes and what lies on the other side. And if the sky is mainly clear you’re going to get the most spectacular sunset. I never get tired of our beautiful Alberta prairie skies. At night sitting out here under the stars and roasting some good ol’ marshmallows sounds just perfect to me! Is anyone else craving s’mores right about now?
