Wowee. another whole season has almost come and gone. We are finished off our 2013 season and thought we should end it off with a little personal post, to reminisce about warmer days! Our year end wrap up is just around the corner too!
Bee and I spent the summer mostly at weddings, but we had the occasional times to get out and away from our computers or fix up the house. We spent a weekend away in the mountains, part of which was spent photographing our lovely friends engagement session, check it out here! The other half was spent adventuring! We fell, well climbed, into a new love. Climbing mountains.
Here we are sitting on the peek of Ha Ling Peek in Canmore, AB. It was such a thrill to climb 2 hours all the way up and see the 600m drop below. Although it seemed we were showed up by the massive amount of joggers and mountain climbers coming down as we made our way up.
We enjoyed tons of local sights while we were there and fell in love with this tiny mountain town. I feel a condo/dream home sometime in the future!
We not only climbed mountains, we even attended a wedding! Brant’s cousin tied the knot and we were completely amiss at what to do with ourselves, it was hard to keep our hands off the camera!
Other then that we spent time with cute nephews, hung out with family, and just did general fix it things around our home. I failed at gardening and the Bee brewed a few batches of beer in our garage.
All in all it was a lovely summer. As we head into the worst of the winter months we are longing for some of those days back. The busyness of teaching and the winter cold is really setting in, but we are looking forward to even more excitement next summer as we begin to meet all our new couples for the wedding season!
Stay warm friends!
2012 was such an amazing year for us. We changed our logo, our colours, our business plan. We began focusing on weddings (although we still did and will do families in the coming year so don`t fret, we just love weddings, like a lot!) We got 12 amazing weddings to be a part of and we learned a heck of a lot about ourselves, our life, and our business.
Our highlights from 2012 include buying our first house, crossing some travel off our list, (Bee did Europe and Vegas, then we did Vegas together in May.) and celebrated 2 wonderful years of marriage. We aren`t ones for resolutions, but we are looking forward to an amazing 2013 in which we have some beautiful couples getting married, Eee finishing school, and the hopes of maybe taking this photography thing a little more full time may be in the midst, but we`ll see. All we hope and wish is that you had as awesome of a 2012 that you all make 2013 just as amazing!
Now for some fave photos… It`s always hard to narrow down the favorites from the year, so here is a look back at our top 15!
Happy New Year!
Wow! Does anyone else feel like this summer flew by so quickly? For us it sure did! We can feel that the fall crispness is in the air and it won’t be another month before leaves start turning beautiful colours and our beautiful summer warmth will be long gone.
We had a pretty swell summer and we’ve shared a bit with you over the past few weeks but we thought we should share a bit more.
Summer was so gorgeous in Edmonton this year, that our travels didn’t take us very far. It is my last full year of school so I settled on working the summer away to pay tuition, while Bee spent the summer working away on our new home. We travelled down to Rocky Mountain House as you know for Maeleen + Aaron’s wedding and across the border East to Saskatchewan to visit Bee’s family at their lakeside cabin by Jackfish Lake on the long weekend. Other then that we’ve stuck around Edmonton and enjoyed the new place so much!
We’ve finally got some awesome pictures to share with you of the inside of our house too! Welcome to our newly painted and decorated living room (With furniture now too!)
We have a couple more weddings to finish off for the Fall season and then it may get pretty quiet around here. Bee is back to teaching and I am finished in April of this year, then we will be looking into our future and seeing what it holds for our lovely business we’ve grown here. Perhaps a full time endeavor shall begin? We will see!
Enjoy the last bits of summer our dear readers. Thank you for all the love you have shown our beautiful couples over the summer, we hope you continue to follow us throughout the Fall too as we are so excited for a bit more travel and some super cute weddings coming up! And although we don’t blog family sessions anymore check out our Facebook for some super awesome fall family shoot sneak peeks (and get one done too if you’d like!)
Have a gorgeous September!
