Danica and Mark are getting married in July 2012, but we decided to photograph the session this summer as Mark is leaving right away for a tour in Kandahar and will be away until December. I’m honestly humbled when I think about everything those in the military give up for us and how committed they are. It’ll be hard for Danica and Mark to be apart for these next six months, but anyone can tell they’ll make it. Full of smiles and admiration for each other, it’s like watching a couple on those first few dates.
They’ve enlisted help from the fabulous Rebecca from High Culture to help with all of the planning, so Danica wont have everything on her plate. If their wedding is anything like the engagement session, its going to be a blast. The session was so relaxed and fun. We started out in a grassy field, but were chased away by storm clouds so we headed to an indoor back up location. Something we’ve never tried before, West Edmonton Mall. Danica really liked the black and red decor at the Red Piano Bar so we started out there and had a drink and took a few fun shots. Then we headed through the mall using the vast variety of areas available. Eventually the sent of Cinnzeo cinnamon buns won us over and we ended the session with a tasty treat.
