Looking back on Kate and Phil’s engagement session, we are quite sure that we photographed them on the last stunning day of October. If you live in this area, then you know that it’s been non-stop rainy and grey for the majority of this month – le sigh. Kate and Phil are a super fun couple – always full of laughter, and always joking. They actually met long distance – Kate is from Ontario and Phil is from Australia. While they’ve spent time in both Australia and Canada, they’re heading back to Australia after their wedding (however, Phil loves it up here in the good ol’ North).
To get some beautiful autumn gold colour and harvest feel, we headed to the fantastic McMillan Farms in Kelowna. McMillan Farms is abound with a huge assortment of pumpkins and has a corn maze! How cool is that? We had a pretty good laugh when they showed up with a marshmallow shooter. While most couples show up with romantic gestures of wine and strawberries, they showed up with a marshmallow shooter – love it! After their marshmallow fight, we hung out with some cute and friendly horses and had a little picnic in the big open field. We’re pretty stoked that we gave Phil his first “Mulled Hot Apple Cider” experience. I guess it’s more popular in Canada? He was pretty impressed with it, so maybe it will catch on in the land down under.
Kate and Phil – you guys are all sorts of fun and we can’t wait to photograph your winter wedding at Sparkling Hill Resort this coming January!!!
A photographer friend in the Okanagan, Karla Rosalin, rode by on her horse while were shooting and let us pose with her beauty for a few shots – thanks!
When Phil, exclaimed he wanted to put marshmallows in Kate’s hair, we were a little like: “Umm…OK.” But it turned out pretty cute.
OK, true story: Kate discovered Phil on Facebook through mutual friends and kinda stalked him from across the world. Go Kate! The next couple photos are an ode to their beginning.
Phil’s a helicopter pilot, but obviously Kate has a better sense of direction.
You guys are so fun – thanks for hanging out with us! Can’t wait till the big day!
