Ali & Jarrad | Winter Snow Canmore Engagement Photos

I had a great time with these two (and their dog) out in Canmore for their engagement session. It was pretty perfect in Canmore, with freshly fallen snow, but it was still warm enough to walk around comfortably. I gotta say, I love snow photography. Snow lends such a pretty backdrop, and when there’s snow on the ground, it acts like a reflector, filling in shadows and making skin look really good. That makes my job as a photographer easy! We went to two locations while we were doing Canmore photography, the first was up at Quarry Lake, and the other was at the engine bridge. They were both popular spots on a Saturday afternoon; the former because it’s partially an off-leash dog park and it was the first nice day in a while. When we got to the engine bridge, there was a wedding photographer there already with a whole wedding group doing photos! We waited patiently until they had gotten through their portraits and their family photos, before we took our turn on the bridge. I think you can tell from the photos that these two are in love, and up for all kinds of silly fun in front of the camera. We ended the engagement session with a quick trip to Starbucks for some warm up beverages, and then drove back to Calgary on clear roads, on a clear day. All in all a pretty awesome afternoon. Here are a few of the photos!
