{Dustin + Alyssa} Engagement

{A few words from Dustin and Alyssa }

We chose Christina because we needed a photographer for our wedding and we knew she was a christian. And it is important to keep it in the community!! We were absolutely ecstatic with how the session went. She is so personable and easy to talk to and she can make everyone smile!! Our favorite part about our session was  our constant laughing. We were thrilled with the final images! Our engagement session was a fun experience and it makes us excited for our wedding day!

Dustin and Alyssa are hilarious. Seriously, the kind of easy going couple who makes a hour and a half drive to Waterton go by so fast! We started in Indian Battle for some more posed + propped photos and then after a quick bite to eat we all jumped in Dustin's truck and headed off to the mountains to catch the sunset!

Dustin I found out loves adventure and was game to pull over wherever I directed! After tumbling out of the truck a couple times (really, it was on a 45 degree slope, definitely a tumble) and learning that my passenger seat had a seat belt alarm too....we made it to Waterton Provincial Park!

 Alyssa mentioned she thought that reflection pictures were awesome, and I mentioned I always wanted to stop at this little pond right at the entrance of the park. This little gem required some wet feet on my part, and though the water wasn't as still as I would have liked, these quiet moments make my heart happy.

Apparently waterton has a thing for these pairs of red chairs scattered throughout the park, so what better way to watch the sun go down than from this view?

I still feel vaguely guilty about how I got this picture, but hopefully the end result was worth it! I asked Dustin and Alyssa to literally chase this sunbeam, and as Dustin would tell me later - The sun was moving fast! Just picture this - I'm standing in the back of the truck yelling instructions like a crazy person, and Dustin and Alyssa are giggling and running and gasping for breath. Needless to say no one complained about being cold after that!

It was an absolute privilege to spend some time with this couple before their wedding. I think that's why I love engagement shoots so much - its time for me to get to know my couple one on one before the craziness of the wedding day. It's one of the reasons why I include a complimentary engagement session with every wedding package! I think it's important to love your photographer and feel comfortable with them!
