We adventured on the beaches deep into the Rocky Mountains in Kananaskis near Banff, AB for Megan + Bryans couples session that they won during my brand launch a few months back! Megan + Bryan met on a law school ski trip, he didn't make the best first impression, she wasn't a huge fan but you would never ever know it. Something about these two is electric, and makes me excited to see what their life together and the continuation of their story has in store for them. Between loving to relax together, loving the best cocktails + snacks in the nude in their apartments and their infections laughter that is hard not to become a part of I was reminded that your people- the ones that fill you up and you can just work through life with while enjoying the simple things in life, are among the absolute most precious things.
Let people take care of you.
Let people surprise you.
Let yourself truly relax doing WHAT TF YOU LOVE.
Appreciate when people have similar interests; and appreciate the things you learn from people who don't.
Voice your opinion without the need to argue or be right.
Eat + over eat what you love.
Laugh until your guts + face hurt.
Listen to understand.
Trust that your people would never want you any other way.
All of these things were such welcomed reminders that were swirling around my head on my drive home from Kananaskis, AB the night Megan, Bryan and I pressed pause to remember all the best things snuggled in the Rocky Mountains.
My intention is always that I want these photos to be more than photos, and I KNOW they can be, so when Megan let me know, "Thank you for making this such a wonderful experience for the both of us <3" I knew we had slowed down justtttt enough.
Here's what Megan had to say about our time together-
"Beth was an absolute dream to work with. She made my partner and I feel so comfortable with the poses (mostly my partner and I wrestling each other), the location (can you get more gorgeous than the Rocky Mountains?), and herself (did we bond over music and cat pictures? Yes, we did). And as the cherry on top, the pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous and I’m now wondering if it’s weird to hang like 30 couples photos on our wall. Sometimes it’s weird to show your love to a stranger, especially when you aren’t personally fans of PDA, but Beth was so much fun to work with and it felt like we’d known her forever, making it so easy to relax and be ourselves around her. We would take photos with Beth again in a heartbeat, and I’m certain we will in the future."
All this just to say I am also officially booking into the weekdays of September + October, so if you're obsessed with your partner + are wanting to press pause on your moments- shoot ya girl a message on my booking page down at my contract form! xxxxx
