Jessica + Kirk's E-Session!

Jessica and Kirk are living out the storyline of the sweetest romantic comedy, and it was such a wonderful opportunity to photograph their Ottawa engagement session and learn more about their story!

While traveling in Calgary for business, Jessica met the cowboy of her dreams, Kirk. It was completely unexpected but the absolute best kind of surprise! The pair decided to make their relationship happen and currently live together in Calgary, but they flew back to Ottawa for wedding planning and so that I’d be able to capture their engagement session!

Keeping with the country theme, we shot this beautiful outdoor engagement session in Ottawa at Jessica’s aunt and uncle’s farm. It was the perfect backdrop for their session—open skies, blooming wildflowers, and nature as far as you could see. It was an incredible night; even if the horse didn’t want us anywhere near his stomping grounds!

I loved their obvious affection for one another, and it was really neat to be able to hear the couple’s reflections on their engagement session. Jessica said that the photos helped her remember how much Kirk loves her. “Kirk works away a lot, and I Just shared them with him too, and his response was that the photos reminded him how much he misses me (so sweet). Thank you for capturing our love for each other and giving us these forever images. We absolutely cannot wait for you to capture our wedding day! You’re amazing to work with and you made us feel so comfortable.” Um, is it every photographer’s dream to hear these words, or what?!

Kirk and Jessica are set to marry on September 15, and their Stonefields wedding is surely going to be one for the books! I am particularly excited to be able to share the wedding date with them, as we’re getting married on September 15 next year!
