When Sohini and Jass asked us to come to Calgary to photograph their engagement session, we immediately were excited to produce a stunning collection of images for them outside of our home base of Kelowna, BC. Summers are hectic for us with wedding season, so we took to the roads for a fast and furious weekend trip to Calgary and loved every minute of it. In all honesty, we have not been to Calgary in a looong time, so we loved that Sohini and Jass had scouted out their favourite locations for the shoot. Since their wedding will be held in Kelowna soon in early September, they wanted their engagement images to capture the landscapes in and around their city.
Shortly after we rolled into town, we started off with a fun lighthearted picnic at Prince’s Island park with Sohini & Jass’s adorable dog, Ollie, and then headed to the pedestrian suspension bridge at sunset to end the evening off with beautiful city landscapes. The next day we headed out to ZR Auto to photograph with some pretty amazing exotic cars. Jass is a huge fan of these beauties and we can attest he was like a kid in a candy store. You should have seen his grin after he was taken for a test ride in a Lamborghini – it was awesome!
After a quick break, Sohini & Jass took us on a road trip to the country to capture the essence of the beautiful prairie landscape. On the drive, we randomly saw the most amazing big rock standing solely in an open field (literally it’s called “big rock” ). Apparently, it originates from Jasper National Park and some 18,000 years ago fell off the top of a tall mountain during a landslide and then was carried out on a glacier to the prairies where it was deposited as the glacier melted. We loved the dramatic boulder against the flat landscape and Sohini definitely impressed us when she kicked off her stilettoes and climbed it!
Lastly, we headed to an open highway road surrounded by patchworks of farmland to end off the session. This was a pretty epic engagement shoot and we’re positive that Sohini & Jass’s three day wedding next month at the Kelowna Sikh Temple, Cedar Creek Winery, and Sparkling Hill Resort will follow suit. Thanks Sohini & Jass for being your beautiful selves, showing us around Calgary ,and taking us out to the delicious Mango Shiva after our engagement extravaganza. See you soon in Kelowna for your wedding!!!
Sohini & Jass still look good even when making ‘ugly’ faces!
