Jill + John | Engaged | Calgary Engagement Photographer

Last week I spent a few days in Calgary before arriving in Vancouver. I only planned on shooting some personal work out here, so when John and Jill contacted me about doing an engagement session for them, I jumped at the chance!

They are due to get married in September and have been together for almost 10 years. We met up at Crescent heights, an area of Calgary that has beautiful views of the city sky line and was a place Jill & John used to spend a lot of time meeting when they first started dating.

One thing you probably can’t tell from these images is that it was FREEZING cold. It  was -5 and with wind chill, it probably neared -10. Yep, it was that cold! My hands froze 10 minutes into the session and Jill & John assured me that I wouldn’t suffer from frost bite (yes, this was a concern for me haha!)..

We shot for 5 mins and retreated back to the car to warm up, then shot some more (and repeat). As the sun went down, we then headed downtown to take a few shots there. These two were awesome and made shooting the session easy. Thank you guys! I had a lot of fun hanging out with you!

I hope you enjoy the images :) and congratulations to you both!
