My latest engagement session was a bit different in that it was split up into two different sessions. Heather and Jordan initially wanted to get some photos in the early morning at Hillcrest with the city lights in the background. So, the day of, we showed up at around 8:15 in the morning and took advantage of the darkness and the beautiful lights of the city. After about 20 minutes it started to pour rain so we had to cut it short.
We obviously couldn't just end it at that so we schedule a second mini session for later in the week at the Marina, for the morning once again. This time around we did it around 9:45 which allowed the sun to come up a bit more and give the photos an entirely different feel.
Instead of rain though it was blisteringly cold. We moved quickly between each shot to make sure we didn't get too cold. Heather and Jordan were both real troopers. Even though they were cold we managed to get some fantastic photos. One of my favourite photos in a very long time is the one you will find at the very top of this post. It's easy to always zoom in on each and every couple which is all fine and good but you still need to remember to take a step back sometimes. For that particular shot I stepped very far back which allowed for a uniquely intimate photo while showing off the surrounding scenery of the marina.
Both sessions went by extremely quick but were so much fun. I really can't wait for the wedding next year!
