The Kuzyk’s Engagement Session at Alberta Legislature Building, Edmonton

A Winter Engagement Session at Alberta legislature building

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
― Pablo Neruda


Jasmine & Joel met in high school 7 years ago! They are the definition of high school sweethearts. They started off as friends who often hung out together. One day, Joel found the courage to ask Jasmine out and she said yes! In these years these two adorable humans have come to share a love that is full of laughter and cute moments. I got to see this first hand!

Joel proposed to Jasmine on December 14th last year. This was Christmas come early for the adorable couple as they got engaged and made the announcement to their families! Joel and Jasmine sat on a bench together at the legislature building under the beautiful Christmas lights. This is when Joel asked Jasmine if she wanted to become his partner in crime for life! She said yes with happy tears in her eyes. This is why we choose the Legislature building as the location for their engagement session.

The Engagement Session at the Alberta Legislature Building

The Alberta Legislature Building is an iconic landmark that is known to every Edmontonian. During the summers it is often a location for families to hang out and enjoy the fountains. During the winter, it becomes a beautiful magical place that is decorated with tree lights and snow. The pretty lights give it the perfect Christmas spirit and that is exactly when and where Jasmine and Joel got engaged.

I photographed the couple on the grounds of the legislature building. It happened to be the only day we had ice rain so the whole area was extremely slippery! Thankfully no one fell but there were definitely some “oh shit” moments. This was Jasmine & Joel’s first experience with a professional photographer and I am so glad to have been a part of their engagement session. Following the engagement session they were kind enough to leave me a review:

“We had an amazing experience with box cube photography. Sharyar made our first experience with a professional enjoyable and comfortable. The viewing session was organized and well prepared with many examples.” – Jasmine & Joel

I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph Jasmine & Joel’s engagement session at the Alberta Legislature Building and I am really looking forward to joining them on their wedding day.
