Last week I headed out to do an engagement session on a farm close to the sprawling metropolis of Poplar Point…
I was excited because I have never seen that part of Manitoba, but also because, Laura and Darren were super nervous for the session. They have never really had their photo taken and felt they were gonna somehow disappoint me , as they felt sure their photos would not be as good as the other couples they see on my blog or IG feed.
I sent them some comforting words, but did not for one second think I could not capture some photos that would - show who they are, show what it felt like being there, show them a new side of themselves they have never seen - but most importantly, build a connection with them to carry through into the wedding day.
I will not feel like a stranger on their wedding day because of this session… well, and also because I had wine with Laura’s amazing mother in their kitchen on the farm after the session. Once you wine together, you can dine together : )
I LOVE the photos! There are a few of my favourite ones.
Bonus win - I did not get Poison Ivy again…
PS - These farm fields belonged to Laura’s family and we did not damage them in any way. Please respect farmers and their fields, always ask permission and for goodness sake don’t wander in there if they just sprayed!!
