July is always a tricky time of year to shoot in Calgary, and this most recent version of the summer month was no exception. I love shooting outdoors, and the long warm evenings provide ample time to get to explore some great areas in the city. The challenge is that the warm evenings quite often bring pretty intense summer thunderstorms. Great when they happen before or after a shoot, but not so good during one. Luckily, the second date we had picked to meet up worked great and the building clouds held off long enough for us to sneak in an engagement session. I love wandering around in the city with a playful couple like Mel & Dan, pretty much everything we did and saw worked well with their beautiful energy. I’m excited to get to shoot their wedding next month as I know It will be a wonderful event!
