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.

Sharon + Tom | Rustic Farm Photography

This session was a gift from Sharon and Tom's children for their anniversary. Three generations of Tom's family has lived on this farm and soon they will be Century Family Farm Award recipients. Their home holds so many great memories for this happily married couple, but one day they may leave their farm, so they wanted pictures to capture all of the love and hard work they put into the farm and their family. It was an honour to spend time with Sharon and Tom hearing stories about life on the farm. We have so much respect for couples who have been together as long as these two and still have so much affection for each other.
