It only made sense for Justyna and Jamie to have their engagement photos snowboarding, since that is how they met years back on a trip to Jasper. Boarding is still a huge part of their lifestyle and they can be found on any given winter weekend on a ski mountain. Not one to shy away from adventure, I was super excited they hired me for their engagement session up at Big White Ski Resort in Kelowna, BC. Immediately, I knew I had to incorporate the giant snow ghosts and wide vista views from the mountain top.
Jamie proposed to Justyna down in Arizona last October and they have decided to elope! How fun is that? Justyna definitely is organized and came prepared with chai cinnamon buns (which she made herself!) and arranged Big White Ski Patrol to shuttle me around on a skidoo after hours so that we could obtain that gorgeous golden light close to sunset. Thanks Justyna! All that work paid off – what originally started as a flat cloudy day opened up to beautiful blue skies during the last portion of the shoot while we were up on the mountain. How perfect is that?
Congratulations Justyna and Jamie on your engagement and we look forward to hearing about your future elopement!
