The Engagement Ring and How They Met

Mackenzie and Nathan are one cute and adorable couple. They met on Tinder, the bringer of people together and the birther of modern love. Nathan is a power engineer whose spare time hobby is hunting. His hunting skills have gotten him the best catch of his life: our sublime bride to be Mackenzie! Mackenzie works for the government of Alberta and likes to dance. Obviously, she waltzed right into her lucky hubby’s life. The two like to bake together and are, simply put, a real-life white picket fence type of couple. Their first date took place at The Canadian Brewhouse of Northgate Mall. Nathan knew how important and cut-throat first dates and first impressions are. So, even though he had broken his finger in a bike related incident right before the date, he did not want to miss it. He soldiered through a competitive bowling match with Mackenzie, who happens to be a strong energetic woman who lifts regularly, and then they went on a memorable walk in the river valley. Sometime later when it was time to pop the big question, Nathan proposed to Mackenzie in Hawaii with a classic petite-pavé princess cut diamond ring. The simple yet elegant cut of the engagement ring reflects on the very spirit of this spontaneous life-loving couple.

The Engagement Session on Whyte Avenue Edmonton

The Engagement session took place on a gorgeous and truly picture worthy property in the small hamlet of Namao in Central Alberta. The goofiness, laughter filled aura of this loveable couple filled the air and the photography session was a breezy enjoyable experience. Nathan and Mackenzie also brought along their cute puppies that we had the joy of incorporating in our photos. The same location will be the wedding location, so it was a great little adventure for our team and our bride and groom to be, to explore all the nooks and crannies that will make our natural setting. We caught all the right angles and took some mesmerizing stills some of which we are thrilled to share with you.
The lightly drifting clouds in a clear blue sky allowed us to play with the natural light and capture the love and happiness of our adorable couple and their furry children in very many shades. We were also blessed with a breathtaking romantic sunset that shone a golden light on the shimmery strands of our bride’s gorgeous hair and added to the twinkle of love in the eyes of the lovers. Mother nature also set us up with a young field of canola flowers that was greatly and equally appreciated by both us and the dogs. All in all, this was a beautiful joyful session.

We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph Mackenzie and Nathan’s engagement session and we are really looking forward to joining them on their wedding day. You can check out the rest of our work on our blog!
