Cody & Joyce – September 23, 2020
This engagement session has been a long time coming, but it was definitely worth the wait! Cody & Joyce booked their wedding package with me last summer and we originally intended to have a wintry engagement session in March, but the pandemic convinced us to postpone and see what we could do later in the year. When the trees started turning colour so beautifully, I couldn’t resist contacting Joyce to ask if she would ever consider a fall engagement session instead and she promptly said yes!! I am so delighted she did, because it’s not often you get to take advantage of colours like these!
Joyce did not expect the proposal at all when Cody popped the question! They were spending some time away in Edmonton, enjoying being together, and Joyce had no idea that the ring was burning a hole in Cody’s pocket! When the moment finally came, they had just finished being out on the town for the day and they had arrived back at the place they were staying in. Joyce was letting her hair down and completely relaxing, thinking they were done for the day, when suddenly she turned around and Cody was there with the engagement ring!! Joyce was shocked, but overjoyed and absolutely in love with her ring, the “Belle” Beauty and the Beast ring from the Disney collection!
Something I enjoyed so much about my time with Cody & Joyce is that they were both so willing to try new things and have fun together! They are committed to being themselves and really investing in our time together. When I was photographing pictures of the ring, Cody even helped me arrange it and held pieces of greenery in place so that I could have both my hands to hold the camera! It’s not often that I get to collaborate with a groom over the ring pictures, and it was a real treat!!
Cody & Joyce, it was so lovely getting to see you again and spending this time with you! You two make such a beautiful couple and I enjoyed every minute of our time together; I can’t wait to photograph your big day next summer!!
Enjoy a few of my favourite images from your engagement session!
