Jenna + Ryan's Elkwater Wedding Proposal

We recently photographed Jenna and Ryan's wedding in Elkwater, and it was every bit as perfect as their engagement session last summer.

They invited me out to their farm near Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park where they told me their endearing wedding proposal story. Initially, Ryan thought about having a photographer capture the proposal, but opted for a private and more intimate proposal. Luckily, we went on an excursion around their farmland to the very spot where Ryan popped the question and took a few shots to replay the moment!

On the day of the proposal, he told Jenna that one of the cows got out and needed her help to find it. They jumped on the ATV and off they went. As they drove through the picturesque landscape of their cypress hills acreage, Jenna unknowingly searched for this imaginary livestock. Once they reached the edge of the coulees, they peered out to see nothing but the beautiful view... and Ryan down on one knee.

And that's where their wedding journey began. We will share more about that in another blog post.

Sydney + Ryan's Echo Dale Engagement Session

It feels like forever ago since we got together for Sydney and Ryan's engagement session in Medicine Hat at Echo Dale Farm. These two traveled from Saskatchewan while planning their Elkwater wedding to meet with vendors such as Katie Jalbert who did Sydney's makeup for the session. I am just so happy we were able to meet, too.

The weather was not great, but these two pushed through the cold to get these photos while they were in town. Myself, I was all bundled up, so we made sure they stayed close to keep each other warm (or warm-er at least).

Luckily the weather is guaranteed to be much nicer on their wedding day this coming July. I look forward to catching up with Sydney and Ryan soon. So many things have probably changed since we first met, but one thing is likely the same - how beautiful these two are together! Count down to wedding season has begun!
