I can never resist a good golden hour at Pitt Lake for a session. The sun dips ever so perfectly behind the mountains, the clouds can be so lovely & dramatic and between the mountains, fields and narrow long winding road to/from the location it’s easy to see why this is a local favourite session spot. It can get busy, like REALLY busy – the nicer the evening, no matter the time of year, the higher the likelihood that you may end up shooting almost elbow to elbow with other photographers. I strive to stay away from these busy bustling evenings where a quiet space is hard to find because, to me, the most important part of an engagement session is providing a safe space. A safe space at MKP is designed to give you room to be comfortable to be yourself, to explore the space & world around us, and to be bold adventurous and authentically ourselves during the session. I often find on the busy busy evenings at Pitt Lake this safe space is difficult to hold & protect for my couples and I never want that energy to take away from the excitement & moment of YOUR engagement session! Shooting on the off-season times can be helpful as well as opting for a sunrise session! I have become a big fan of sunrise sessions lately, and I PROMISE #1 to greet you with a coffee, & #2 it will absolutely be worth the early wake-up call! T
These two were such troopers on a busy night for their Pitt Lake engagement session. I absolutely was dying over the black & white edits from their session, I couldn’t get enough! I just absolutely got *LOST* in Amina’s eyes, they really popped while I was editing so please enjoy a few more than I would usually share! A&F were so sweet throughout their entire session, we had lots of laughs and made the most of our amazing location at Pitt Lake! After a long wait, these two have a lot to celebrate at their summer wedding after multiple postponements due to the pandemic. I am so happy these two are officially able to tie the knot & party with all their friends & family! I cannot wait for their August wedding; it’ll be here before we know it!
