Marissa + Marty engaged

Living in Canada, sometimes we need to embrace the fact that for a few months of the year, most of us are surrounded by snow. Shoveling the drive-way, wearing Sorels and scraping our windshields are part of the 'norm'. For Marissa and Marty, they have come to thrive on the winter months. These two are getting married this coming summer, but wanted to do their engagement session sooner than later, which meant using a background of snow. M+M live up in the hills of Penticton and are no strangers to plowing their driveway. They invited me to come up to their property for the shoot, and as I drove down the long driveway, I was getting sooo excited. A fresh blanket of snow was covering all the bushes and trees. Seeing Mother Nature like this feels so serene... so special.

We headed out to their wood pile where they have been working all season on chopping wood for their firewood business! I thought this was the perfect spot to start, as it has become a big part of their day to day. We brought blankets and bundled up as best we could! It was so great to see these two together in their element. Super cute, a little ridiculous and a perfect fit.

Thank you two for asking me to do this for you. It was such a great day, and I am so looking forward to the summer!
