I’ve decided to toss a new end-of-the-year post into the mix – my absolute favourite ring photos from the past year!
Ring photos are my absolute favourite thing to do at weddings and engagement sessions as I feel like I just get to play. Creating new images that mesh into the photos of the day is something I take a lot of pride in being able to do well and something my clients have come to know and expect as part of their photos.
When 2018 started I was really worried that I wouldn’t be able to hit my goal numbers for weddings and sessions. But really I just had to have faith that things would work out (provided I put in the work of course), because in the end, this year was absolutely amazing!
My end-of-the-year blog posts have grown in number over the years, but it is my annual Thank You post that really puts things in perspective for me. I have such an incredible job in which I get to be a part of some really special moments. Our clients invite me into their wedding days, their homes and their families to do my work and when I sit down to write out this post I really am so humbled by the amazing experiences I get to be a part of each year.
So the Fall season, as gorgeous as it was, didn’t really get a good showing this year. We had some truly stunning colours, but they didn’t last long. Summer took forever to go away, and then Winter popped up in full force so early! As as sad as this all was for true Fall-lovers like myself, it meant that the start of Winter had some unique features to it – like big, Fall-coloured trees sitting among the piles of snow. It was definitely unique and I absolutely loved that some of stuck around long enough for Danielle + Trevor’s engagement session!
I love getting to shoot in the same location during different seasons. It’s almost like getting to photograph there for the very first time as everything just looks so different. Especially when it is an area that has been designed to have something for every season, like Stewart Park has. A few gorgeous, pink blossoms trees in the Spring, tons of green foliage (and willow trees!) in the Summer, my favourite deciduous trees in the Fall for all those wonderful colours, and beautiful wide open spaces mixed with the flowing water in the winter. And of course, all of the architectural details throughout the park help out year round.
So all of this means that no matter what time of the year a client asks to do their session there, I am 100% up for it! In fact, I was super excited to head back there when Kaitlin + Andrew requested it for their engagement session.
