We’re so excited to work with Linda & Alaa to photograph their wedding at the Art Gallery of Alberta at the end of June. Our good friend and amazing photographer Haley Shandro, contacted us to let us know that her mom had found a wonderful man & was getting re-married and they were on the hunt for a wedding photographer. It’s always an honour to photograph anyone’s wedding but when a fellow photographer who’s work we admire, passed our name along to her mom, we felt extremely humbled and honoured.
The moment we met Linda & Alaa we knew that photographing them was going to be a treat. They are both such warm-hearted and beautiful people and the way they make each other smile is infectious. Both Linda & Alaa weren’t expecting to find love again after losing both of their spouses but the universe works in mysterious ways and brought them together. They both chose to do their engagement session at the University of Alberta as both Linda & Alaa have spent many years at the UofA as both students and in their professional careers.
Here are a couple of our favourite photos from their engagement session at the University of Alberta that we photographed a few weeks ago. Keep an eye on the blog for a sneak peek from their wedding at the Art Gallery of Alberta coming soon!
