Fruitvale Summer Sunset {Abbotsford Engagement Photographer}

Now that I am wrapping up sessions for the end of the year, I can finally get caught up on some sessions I have yet to blog about!

Waaaay back in August, the husband, kids and I went on our annual trip to Fruitvale to visit my sister. This trip is always our big trip of the year (8+ hours on the road!) so it is a highlight of our summer. This time around I was determined to snap some engagement style photos of her and her man, as they are planning their wedding for 2014 and I wanted to do these for her 🙂

This year when we went, the weather wasn’t nearly as nice as it had been in years past.  It was a little grayer and cloudier than normal and we had a good rainstorm complete with thunder and lightning.  I was kind of getting discouraged….I had a feeling that the weather just wasn’t going to be on our side and thought we weren’t going to be able to do the shoot.  But fortunately on the day before we left, the clouds parted at the most beautiful time of the day and lucked out with some AMAZING light.

This session was so fun and it didn’t hurt to have a beautiful sister and an awesome brother-in-law as my subjects 🙂




Thank you Colleen and Devin for allowing me to capture these photographs for you! I can’t wait to see you both walking down the isle! xo
