Jill, Zach and I had a really hard time trying to schedule their engagement shoot. Between their extremely busy lives and the rain filled Saskatoon summer we found ourselves rescheduling the shoot over and over again. It looked like a Sunday in early September was going to finally work for the three of us.
What I hadn’t anticipated when booking that date was that I would be in the middle of installing hardwood floor in our entire house. I remember that particular Sunday looking like it was going to be an awesome day for the shoot so I knew that we wouldn’t be rescheduling again. The shoot was for 5:30 so my father-in-law, my wife who was 32 weeks pregnant, and I raced through laying the nursery floor.
And am I ever glad that we didn’t have to reschedule because the light that day was awesome. Jill and Zach live on an acreage about 20 minutes outside of Saskatoon and that seemed like a perfect place for the shoot. Their place was a photographer’s dream, and with them being the “outdoorsy type”, it was fitting to use as a setting.
In January they will be tying the knot in Maui, Hawaii with about 30 guests making the trip with them. Unfortunately I won’t be going along to shoot the wedding, but I am very grateful that I had the chance to work with this fabulous couple to capture their engagement photos.
Here are some of my favourite photos from our time together. Be sure to also check out the high definition slideshow to see even more images of the two of them.
