red deer engagement photographer ➾ melissa&sheldon
When I first met up with this wonderful couple, it started out as many consults do, chatting about the proposal, where they are from…etc. It turned out that we had both grown up in BC (myself in the Shuswap and them in the Kootenay’s) and moved to Alberta around the same time. As we were chatting Melissa had mentioned that she knew one of the families that I had shot in the summer. Being intrigued, I asked her which family….it turns out, her and Sheldon were good friends with my best friend Brett and her husband Tyler, from back home! They had had the same group of friend when they were all living in the Cranbrook/Creston area back in early 2000’s. It’s a small world we live in and i’m thrilled that Melissa and Sheldon chose me to help share this new chapter in their lives.
This session is also a bit of a milestone for me, as it was my first professional session shooting with digital and film. I was so in love with the film images I decided to only blog those. I’m excited to include more and more film into my work :)
Camera’s Used: Rolleifelx 3.5f MX-EVS & Mamiya 645 Pro TL
Film Used: Portra 160 & Fuji 400H
Congrats to you both and wish you all the happiness!
