We've known Sarah for a pretty long time. We met almost 5 or 6 years ago when we all worked in a restaurant together, and since then, it's been a little crazy to see how far people have come along in that time. A few years ago, Ben came along and completed her world in a way I don't think anyone else could have. We've met Ben quite a few times and he's always super relaxed and funny, and always goofing around. Seemed like a perfect match and still to this day I think it holds more true than ever.
But as our lives always seem to intertwine in one way or another, regardless of how much time goes by, this time we gathered at Louise McKinney Park for one of our favourite things to do together, and that, of course, is shooting photos.
Sarah is a Valentine's Day baby, so in honour of these two love birds, we figured we'd write a little blog of the recent session we did together. Though Ben claimed to be "awkward and nervous" I think these pictures prove just how much love can affect people. You tell us, does he look "awkward and nervous" to you like he claimed he would be?! We think not! We think they look fricking ADORABLE! His eyes lit up every time he looked at her and smiles couldn't help but follow. You can see it in every single photo. Young love is such an incredible thing to witness and even more to be surrounded in it. We chose to shoot at sunset because we wanted to create a warm and cordial environment to battle the harsh Alberta winter (though let's face it, this winter has been EXTREMELY mild.) It was one of those sessions where every photo we took was almost magical and we're truly lucky to be able to encapsulate such beautiful moments between these two. Thanks so much for such a fun shoot and Happy early birthday Sarah!
We wish you two the very very best on Valentines/Bday and everything after.
