Melissa and Brendan – Prince’s Island Park Engagement Photos

This one’s about as close as they get to me! I’ve known Brendan since we were both in grade 3. Thing is, Melissa’s known Brendan for just as long!

We decided to take this summer engagement shoot to the heart of Calgary – Prince’s Island Park, nestled between two streams of the Bow River by Eau Claire.

Windmills are cool.

I love shooting around here. The calm of the lagoon with trees drooping all around, interrupted only by the sounds of the angry goose’s honk – Because seriously, screw those guys.

That evening, though, the honking murder machines couldn’t hope to compete with the sheer amount of love in the air.

Prince

Hanging out with these two is really great because of the calm contentment of their love.

Prince

My favorite weddings to shoot are, well, most of them! They’re the ones where two people are so obviously in love that it shows in every photo. I know you’re getting the vibe!

Prince

Plus, having such great chemistry can’t be beaten!

Prince

One reason we chose to have this shoot in Prince’s Island is that Brendan proposed to Melissa here!

These photos aren’t the whole story. They’re not the beginning, and they’re not the end – They’re a wonderful chapter in a long, terrific story.

Tune in later to see their lovely backyard wedding ceremony!
