Well, I have to say that my expectations from this “winter that wasn’t” have been pretty low. I’ve been skiing at the resort precisely one time so far this year, and just a handful of backcountry excursions on top of that. I knew that Chantel and Kyle had been hoping for some winter in their shots, so I had spent the week prior to their shoot trying to figure out how I was going to accomplish that. I wasn’t particularly optimistic.
But then… the night before it started to snow. Not a lot mind you. Just enough to make Fernie seem like a brand new place. I made it about 10 feet away from our studio before I started getting distracted. Not a single shot was taken in a spot from my original list of locations. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow!
Chantel and Kyle are good people, and I am excited to be shooting their wedding later this summer at St Eugene’s out near Cranbrook. For some reason that has been a venue right in our backyard that has always eluded us. It’s going to be a blast!
