Edmonton Wedding Photographers & Event Photographers » Capturing Life's Moments. In Digital.

Take a gorgeous looking couple, add in an adorable puppy, some fresh snow and above seasonal temperatures and you have the perfect recipe for a beautiful winter engagement photo session in Edmonton. Haley & Brendan are getting married in Edmonton this summer and Bruce met up with them while they were in the city running some wedding errands to photograph their engagement session.

For many couples with fur babies, it’s hard to find a way to include them in the wedding day so the engagement session is a great opportunity to get some photos with them and since we’re dog people, we love it when couples include their pets in their photos. It’s also a great way to make the session even more personal. After a few hours in the car, Kia was pretty excited to go for a walk in Whitemud Park and had a blast running through the snow and finding her favourite thing in the world – sticks.

Enjoy this sneak peek from Haley & Brendan’s winter engagement session in Whitemud Park.

While the spring and fall are both very popular times of the year to do engagement photos in Edmonton, the winter months also offer some unique opportunities for photos and that was exactly what Sarah and Trevor decided to do. The Ice Castles in Edmonton are operating for their third year in a row and this was the first time we’d been to check out this years’ build.

For those unfamiliar with the Ice Castles, they are temporary outdoor installations made entirely from hand-crafted ice. The Ice Castles began in Utah and eventually spread to other cities throughout North America and they’ve now been in Edmonton for the past three years and continue to be a poplar attraction for those looking to get out of the house during the cold winter months.

Sarah and Trevor made the trip up from Calgary and we lucked out with some reasonably mild temperatures for their session. If you decide to do photos at the Ice Castles, be prepared to work around the crowds and be sure to dress warm as it will be about -5 degrees colder inside the castle than the temp on your phone’s weather app. We chose a weekday to visit and arrived as soon as they opened so that we could be one of the first groups inside the castles which allowed us a few minutes to take photos before it started to get busy. Buy your tickets in advance to save a few dollars but keep in mind that you won’t have exclusive access to the space. There is an option to book the Ice Castles for a private session but the cost is fairly high for something like an engagement session and they do limit the number of private sessions so that they can do maintenance and work on the installation while it is closed to the public.

Once it started to get crowded, we headed down to the skating rink at Hawrelak Park for a few more photos out on the frozen pond to finish off their session. Enjoy this sneak peek and stay tuned to the blog for more engagement sessions and for photos from their wedding later this year.

After a brief hiatus to enjoy the holidays after another busy wedding season, we’re back at it and today we’re thrilled to share a few photos from an engagement session that we recently photographed in Stony Plain. Kim & Terry are getting married this May and we’re looking forward to kicking off our 2018 wedding season with them. Originally we had planned to photograph their engagement session between Christmas and New Years but Edmonton experienced a deep freeze for a couple of weeks with temps in the -30s with wind chill. Thankfully the weather warmed up and we met up with them a couple of weeks ago to photograph their engagement session at Olde Back Roads.

Olde Back Roads was a new location for us and Kim actually discovered it on Facebook. The owner Gloria decided a few years ago to open up her beautiful property in Stony Plain to photographers for sessions and over the past few years she’s expanded the property to include a bunch of really nice sets complete with props like chalkboards, blankets, etc.

Enjoy these sneak peeks from Kim & Terry’s winter engagement session at Olde Back Roads and keep an eye on the blog for sneak peeks from their wedding later this year!
