Engagement Photos in Downtown Edmonton

Sam and Leah had their first date at Craft Brewery in Edmonton and when I asked them about their engagement session, they knew it had to end there. Being the foodies that they are and with Sam being Italian, they incorporated their love of cooking into their session with the rest of their engagement photos in downtown Edmonton.

After a steamy kitchen lunch date, we made our way to the Citadel and finally ventured over to Craft. With the weather finally warming up, we got to explore Edmonton‘s downtown a little and used some alleys that were along our journey.

As we were walking, Leah was sure she had seen the famous number 99, Wayne Gretzky himself and was she ever right! They posed for a quick photo, said their thank you and we continued on our way.

Ending at Craft Brewery, Sam and Leah reminisced about their first date and chatted about their engagement party that was happening later that evening. It was an eventful day nonetheless and one I’m sure to never forget.

Winter Couples Session in Edmonton

A winter couples session if you live in Edmonton is a must, especially when the weather warms up and you still have snow on the ground. This was the case for Shannon and Taylor and I was so thankful since they drove almost three hours from Cold Lake for their session.

Shannon, Taylor and I are all from the same small town back in Ontario, and when Shannon got in touch with me I couldn’t help but ask as Taylor’s last name rang a bell as did hers. Talk about a small world!

It’s funny when you move how much more connected you feel to where you came from especially when you meet people who actually know where it is, let alone grew up there too. Having lived here for awhile now, Shannon and Taylor have their sights on moving back home someday so it was nice to capture a part of their journey here out west.

Taylor even shared, “As a guy, I’m not really one for photos but of course, I’ll do anything for Shannon. However, you actually made it relaxing and fun to have our photos taken!”

at home engagement edmonton photographer tracey jazmin

At Home Engagement in Edmonton

Their love story started almost 10 years ago at a local restaurant where they worked together. It wasn’t exactly love at first sight, in fact when they first met they really didn’t like each other much at all.

Through the years, they grew to find they had more in common than they thought and became each other’s shoulder to lean on. I’m sure you can figure out the rest.

Mike and Vanessa decided an at home engagement was what they wanted, because like many couples, it’s the place they can be themselves the most. Cafe mocha’s for two and some to-die-for pastries from Cobs Bread, the mood was set.

They listened to their favourite playlist, drank coffee and had a little first dance practice run in their kitchen. Vanessa shared that this was a typical Sunday for them, and I’m sure it’s the day when some of their favourite memories are made.

As they sat and chatted, they realized that that very day was the six month mark until their wedding day. A moment that was shocking, yet so exciting how fast it was coming up. I cannot wait to be their Edmonton wedding photographer at the Royal Glenora this coming summer. Their vision for their wedding is so unique and completely tailored to them and who they are from the colour scheme to their outfits.

Skating in Hawrelak Park

Skating in Hawrelak Park on the outdoor rink is Sam and Blake’s annual Valentine’s Day tradition. To them, it was something so simple but as their photographer, it was the perfect idea for their couple’s session.

When I help my couples plan out their sessions, I always get them to think of a location that has some value in their lives. Being in front of the camera can make us nervous enough, so making something during our shoot familiar and comfortable is always what I strive for.

We hung around the rink for an hour, while Blake taught Sam how to skate backwards and Sam taught Blake how to spin her in circles which of course made us all laugh, creating some of my favourite photos.

Engagement Photos in Edmonton

Originally Natalie and Nathan wanted their engagement photos in Edmonton or the Rocky Mountains but with their crazy schedules, weren’t able to make it work. With time of the essence, they decided to do their engagement photos with their wedding photographer back in Toronto around the Scarborough Bluffs, the most “mountainous” region in the area.

Not long after, our mutual friend Stephanie tagged them in my model call post. Little did we know, in their research for a photographer in the mountains, they had already came across my blog!

We decided that an at home session with a “we woke up like this” feel was the perfect fit along with some flourless banana pancakes with chocolate chips, of course. They put on their favourite playlist, goofed around in the kitchen and followed the cutest recipe card I couldn’t help but admire.

Natalie had previously sent me a few pictures of their home, and I was so envious of the artwork she had. It turns out, Natalie is an artist too and she herself had hand drawn the recipe onto a cuter, more photogenic recipe card just for their shoot.

We decided to also head outside for a few photos on the trail next to their home as Edmonton’s trees were covered in a stunning layer of ice that made winter a little prettier than usual. Before saying our goodbyes, Natalie also gave me a hand drawn and handwritten thank you card from her and Nathan for spending my time with them along with the cutest Valentine’s Day card for my man. Talk about thoughtful!

If you love Natalie’s work just as much as I do, follow her on Instagram @shescribbleswithlove. Maybe, we can convince her to make this side project her full time gig because she has some serious talent! Wait until you see the world map she painted below too, that piece is my favourite :)
