Knox Mountain is a popular location for adventurous and outdoorsy people. As a mama, I love taking my girls for hikes and sightseeing, as a photographer I love the different scenic views Knox Mountain offers. Tall trees and rolling hills on one side, mountain peaks and the lake on the other. I mean, you can’t go wrong planning a wedding, maternity or couples session at Knox Mountain…except when it’s right in the middle of forest fires!
When Orion and Rianna suggested Knox Mountain for their couple’s session, I knew we’d get fabulous shots but mother nature wasn’t on our side! The smoke had been rolling in and didn’t seem to be going anywhere. I even considered canceling the session, but man I’m glad we didn’t! Literally, minutes after we pulled into the parking lot, the smoke cleared out and we could see the beautiful Okanagan sunset that had been hiding for weeks!
When a couple contacts me for a photo session, I always make sure that the pictures they receive reflect their personalities. When I first met Orion and Rianna, the first thing that came to my mind was how gorgeous they look but how much chemistry they had going on. I knew right there and then that I wanted their couple’s session at Knox Mountain to incorporate their love for fitness (let’s be honest, their killer bodies!), their sense of humor and complicity. Looking back at these pictures, I think we nailed it!
Couples in love inspire the crap out of me! If you and your partner would like to get some killer shots, please give me a shout. Whether it’s capturing a lazy Sunday morning in your home, a walk by the lake with your furry babies or grabbing coffee at your favorite local shop – I’m your gal!
