We had to reschedule Krystle and Curtis’s session the first time because of the weather delaying harvest, and I am so glad we did! We finally got to meet on a late October evening in Zealandia, where Krystle grew up. I was especially excited because we hadn’t met in person yet at this point, having only communicated via phone and email during the wedding and engagement session booking process. We hit it off right away, and I knew it was going to be a great session right from the start.
Their session started right in town and involved turkeys and a curious kitty. That can only be awesome, right? Then we visited a nearby farm where there was tons of cool old farm equipment that we had fun exploring. Finally, we went to Krystle’s parents’ farm, and it was so perfect. The sun was setting, there were lots of trees and grass and an old building. We wandered around, me snapping photos and them dancing, cuddling and laughing. Lots of laughing. That’s my favourite thing. I probably look and sound like a fool most of the time, but I don’t care because laughing photos show the most genuine, real moments.
As the sun set we made our way out into a field and then onto the dirt road that runs by the farm. We chatted the whole time and by the end of the session, when the sun had gone below the horizon, I was so excited about their wedding next July. It’s being held near Wynyard, so I get to go somewhere new and spend the weekend with a super sweet and fun couple.
As I drove home that night, I had a huge grin on my face. That’s when I really love my job, when I can’t wait to get home from a session and look at the photos I just took. Thanks Krystle and Curtis for the fun time, and I will see you in July!
