When Kristin & Jeff met me on Monday for their engagement session we weren’t sure what to expect.  There were rainfall warnings stretching from Cranbrook to the Alberta border, and we didn’t have a lot of options for covered locations to keep out of the weather.

It was our plan to go shoot in the Crowsnest Pass at the same location we used for Holly & Joe’s engagement session years ago, but as we were driving through Sparwood the weather broke and we even saw the sun a few times!  It’s hard to justify going further down the road into the unknown when we had decent weather to work with!

We had a great time exploring Sparwood, using a few locations I’ve shot at before and trying a few new ones as well.  I’m excited to hang out with them again and shoot their wedding later this summer at the Delta Kananaskis Lodge.

We started the session in some trees near the Sparwood Golf Club.

We shot at this barn a few years ago at Jenna & Mike’s wedding, but with the field free of snow I had the opportunity to get a little further away and use it differently.

Just down the road is a pedestrian bride that goes across the Elk River that had some cool lines.  I’m a sucker for symmetry.

I love this casual shot of Kristin & Jeff walking along the bridge.

I wanted to do a few shots down by the river but got sidetracked by the artwork on the bridge structure.

The wind was starting to pick up and rain was in the air, but Kristin & Jeff were troopers and snuggled in for a few shots down at the water’s edge.
