Meet Sarah + Jack, an adorable couple from Northern Calgary.
First of all, when you hear the name jack, do you not just instantly think “romance?”. I know do. I don’t know what it is about that name, but it just has such a ring of romance to me.
BY THE WAY: I went in on this shoot with @courtingramphoto, who is an adorable + absolutely talented lady here in Calgary. I actually had the pleasure of shooting her engagement photos + I get to shoot her wedding! So exciting. You all need to go look at her work RIGHT NOW.
Anyways, the evening was wonderful. We trekked though Fisk Creek park, through many thistles + random holes in the ground, to find beautifully sunset filled spots. The sun was playing games with us that night, as it was covered by the thick, deep, smoke that was being blown in from the not so far mountains in BC. It is definitely hard to name the red sunset sun as beautiful, especially when you know the utter damage that the blazing fires are causing so close to home. But as an artist, I must, because it was showing off + it was beautiful.
It was definitely a learning curve playing with the smoke filled skies. But it gave off such a creamy + white tone, that I almost preferred shooting in such a scenario. Jack + Sarah willing fully agreed to my crazy, random + sometimes odd requests, but through it all, worked with me to create beautiful images that will last a life time.
Photos are so special. They can capture moments that one day will become so far away. But with one simple glance of a long lost photo, you can be overcome with every feeling that you had that day, for that person, in that long ago moment. Photography wows me every single day. I don’t think I will ever understand how the camera is able to do what it does. But I think that’s what makes it so beautiful. When the photo pops up on the screen, immediately after I shoot it, I ALWAYS am just blown away with amazement. Photos are amazing.
I am so happy that I was able to capture some moments in Sarah + Jacks relationship together + I hope that they can always cherish these beautiful photos that I have provided.
