Absolute Photography: The Grants – Grande Prairie Maternity and Newborn Photographer

At the end of May I met up with these two for their Maternity session. They are expecting their first baby in the next few weeks. As I was driving into town to meet them I was worried that we were going to be rained out – but instead Mother Nature cooperated and we had an awesome session in some very lovely evening light.

I am looking forward to meeting up with them again for their newborn session!

Absolute Photography: Nelson + Lenore… Engaged! – Grande Prairie Wedding And Engagement Photography

wapiti river session

I first met up with this couple last summer in their home. As soon as I walked in the door I knew I wanted to be their photographer. They had recently just moved into an older home on their dream acreage. The two of them had fixed up the place with new paint, awesome finds from Restore, and just the right amount of personal touches. Open shelving in the kitchen, subway tiles in the bathroom etc – Just my style!

As Lenore told me the story of Nelson’s proposal while river boating on the Wapiti – I knew we would be headed back there for their engagement session. A couple of weeks ago we did! We struck out from Pipestone in the couples riverboat and went upstream to a beach, then further up to a cozy spot in the trees with some gorgeous evening light and then finished up the session back on the shoreline with the boat.

These two were certainly a blast to work with and I am looking forward to their wedding this August!

Lenore - Thanks to Allana an amazing photographer. She was extremely flexible and didn’t even blink when ask to get in a jet boat and head up river for a photoshoot. She did such an awesome job, even when she’s working with two goofs.

Absolute Photography: Jason & Danielle… Engaged! (Part 1) – Grande Prairie Engagement & Wedding Photography

I had an absolute awesome time with this couple during their engagement session a couple of weeks ago. When we were discussing ideas for their session, as always I asked what were some things the two of them like to do together. D mentioned that last summer they started a little garden in their front yard and that this year J wanted to plant tomatoes. Well.. I happen to LOVE gardening so this definitely triggered some ideas for their session! We visited a local greenhouse to find some plants, and then home to start planting. These two were so much fun to work with – full of smiles and love for each other! I can’t wait to join them for their wedding later this summer!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the second half of Jason & Danielle’s engagement session here on the Blog!
