For this engagement session, my first since Manitoba locked down in November 2020, I wanted to play with focus. For some images, I used the couple to frame details in the background, the location where Mike proposed. I fell in love with the birch trees at Birds Hill Park, which were backdropped by a clear blue sky and so I decided to photograph these two lovebirds in direct sunlight, something I usually try to avoid.
It was so great to get back behind the camera again, to traipse through the forest with two lovely and happy humans. I will admit that at times, I ran out of breath with my face covered by a mask, but that’s just part of the deal now! I can’t wait to capture Sarah and Mike’s wedding this summer.
