Angela + Jimmy :: E-Session

Words by Maureen Young

Edmonton Wedding Photographers

Mid-summer sun lit this varsity inspired photo shoot.   We took Angela + Jimmy back to the start of their love story; Grant MacEwan campus.  Jimmy was the aspiring student’s union member paying his dues in the cafeteria’s convenience store, Angela was the pretty nursing girl who bought candy to get a closer look at the eye candy.

The campus was rife with places that had special meaning to the couple and we were privy to a guided tour of their relationship spots.  Even though Rina teaches at Grant MacEwan, seeing the campus as a stage for a love story brought a new dimension to its halls.  Fortunately we didn’t have the police pursuit of Vancouver since Rina, well aware The Sun uses campus to search for sunshine girls, had cleared the shoot with HR the previous day.

:: Lockers
Providing a protective barrier from the onslaught of heavy nursing textbooks were roses.  Jimmy surprised Angela with roses in her locker one day.

:: The Library
As a nursing student, Angela had a home away from home in the library.

:: Study rooms
Both Jimmy and Angela spent countless hours bonding while studying and reviewing for exams.

:: Cafeteria
This was the epicentre of their relationship; Angela saw Jimmy doing his speech for SU here and thought he was cute.  This was also where the convenience store was and as Jimmy worked the register he caught a pretty girl’s eye….

:: Front Courtyard
Romantic walks, lunch dates and a chance to get away from the library and study rooms.

Meet the pups

When we arrived at the lake, it looked like one of the evil dogs from UP! had escaped from a screen nearby and was pursuing Angela + Jimmy’s Accord as though it were a mythical bird.  Reality then set it and we were equally convinced that a guard dog had escaped from a neighbouring farm and was protecting its territory.  Turns out the puppy henchman is Leo, Angela + Jimmy’s 1 year old pup who’s friendliness is only exceeded by his curiosity. Leo’s off leash antics kept everyone well entertained and Rina kept a close eye on him to make sure that we were chasing after him just when the light was perfect!

Shiloh, a super cute gift from Jimmy to Angela, is a year older than Leo and a bit more selective in playmates.  While Leo was eager to play, Shiloh was a bit of a snob and rebuffed any of Leo’s playful gestures.

The sun set as Angela + Jimmy took a romantic stroll along the trails and enjoyed the autumn foliage.
