Calgary Engagement: Amber + Mike

The first time we met was a dark, grey morning under a down pour of rain. Amber and Mike were out in Chilliwack visiting family for the weekend and so we had originally planned their engagement session for that Saturday. The weather, however, did not cooperate with our small window of opportunity…so we made other arrangements and a few days later I was on a plane to Calgary for the evening. I was more than happy to change up my routine and shoot in a new place! A place that had a much more promising weather forecast than at home.

Mike and Amber are friends with Shane – he and Amber both have worked for Westjet for years and it just so happened that Shane was already out in Calgary for work. The four of us met up and had much fun shooting at the city’s Prince’s Island Park. Amber and I had been emailing back and forth leading up to their shoot and had filled me in on a little about them. As she had put it, Mike is more preppy whereas Amber is more of a free spirit – Mike says she’s like a crow because of how she loves anything colourful and shiny! :) I loved that and was excited to see that come through in their photos – just check out the cute and vibrant dress Amber chose for her outfit change!

Mike and Amber, thank you for the fun and laughs and introducing me to a little piece of Calgary. All the best with your Kelowna wedding in July!

Amber had warned me that they weren’t uber lovey dovey…but I think they had just the right mix of fun and romance…
