Carmen & Dean – Esession on a rainy evening in the fall


With summer drawing to a close, there are only so many days left to shoot before the white fluff starts filling the skies. Knowing this, I didn’t hesitate to meet up with Carmen & Dean, even though there was rain in the forecast. I love shooting in just about any condition, and there’s something magical about the kind of light you can get when it rains. As I told them, it turns every surface into a mirror – one of the reasons you often see wet roads in the movies. As an added bonus, with a slight chill to the air people hold each other that much closer. We started in Eau Claire for a few shots, before heading off to a spot I found along the Elbow river in the Mission area of Calgary. As the evening progressed, the light fell off fast, but with a warm sweater, wool coats, and a scarf they didn’t seem to mind. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next summer in the always lush month of June!
