Erin + Dave :: Beam Me Up (Waterton, AB) E-session

Words by Maureen Young

Edmonton Wedding Photographers

Kirk or Picard?

A simple enough question, but a loaded one.  Fortunately Dave answered correctly (Picard, of course!)  and the rest as they say, is history.  Two Star Trek (The Next Generation, not the original) buffs met and fell in love.  For their engagement shoot we explored a (not so) new frontier.

Calgary Wedding Photographers

With our tummies full of Bernard Callebaut Hot Chocolate from Cafe Beano in Calgary we set off for Dave’s family cabin in Waterton, keeping in touch via walkie talkies.  A quick stop in Cardston for a weekend’s worth of groceries and Chester Fried Chicken at Cardston’s 7-11 (the must stop place for lunch whenever Erin + Dave drive down to the cabin) and it was set to be a seriously yummy weekend.

After Cardston we stopped at the Wind Farms for part 1 of an epic engagement shoot.  Erin + Dave’s pup Coco joined in for some puddle splashing (love Erin’s red rain boots!) and frolicking in the fields.

The cabin was built by Dave’s parents less than a year ago on his Grandma’s land.  She had a cabin (which Erin affectionately refers to as a shack) on the property while running the hotel next door.  The view was breathtaking!!

Erin made a fantastic chicken meat loaf with Uncle Ben’s rice (being Chinese this was our first encounter with instant rice!) and we talked about Dave’s amazing job (Computer Quality Assurance Programmer at Bioware – basically he plays video games and makes sure they’re good!) while Rina unleashed her inner Pyro and kept the fire going as we kept cosy by the fireplace.

Our day started at 7:30am when we left Erin + Dave sleeping and set out to scout for amazing locations.  We found a newly opened Tim Horton’s and the caramel apple danish kept us going for the day!  Plus a trip to the Wal-mart super centre for chicken nuggets (an amazing buy – we got 2 dozen!) to snack on back at the cabin, milk, and s’more ingredients – it was a good start to the day!

When the rain finally let up at 4pm we  were able to start day 2 of this epic engagement shoot.  We loved Erin + Dave’s brightly coloured scraves – fashionably warm & beautifully photogenic!

Oops! Dave had a big too much fun with the scarf and it landed on Erin.  Good bloopers moment!Calgary Wedding PhotographerCalgary Wedding PhotographyEdmonton Wedding Photographers

Erin had mentioned the night before that she had told us that she taken a nasty spill in the summer at Drumheller when she fell down a mountain (poor girl!) and we were hesistant to ask her to trek around the canyon as the rain had made is quite slippery.  Erin was an absolute star though and Dave, being the amazingly kind and caring he is and kept an eye on his fiancee.  The rushing water couldn’t drown out the sounds of laughter and their smiles lit up the cloudy day.

Erin + Dave, thank you for being so amazing!  We loved spending the weekend with you guys and the cabin is beautiful!  Anton is looking forward to another Iron Chef showdown with Dave (our last night there the guys teamed up to make an amazing dinner for us!) and we hope you’re indulging in S’Mores a la Infused Studios (the secret is to use Nutella rather than Chocolate!).   Can’t wait to see if there’s a star trek theme to your wedding after all ;).

Live long + prosper,
