Karen + Solomon :: Jet Set E-Session (Alberta, Canada)

Words by Maureen Young

Edmonton Wedding Photographers

We are so incredibly honoured & just wowed that Karen + Solomon, who live in Hong Kong, flew all the way over the Pacific to shoot their engagement photos with us.  As they were entrusting us with not only their engagement images, but also capturing Karen’s first Canadian holiday, we scouted not just locations, but also activities and our favourite food finds to share our Alberta lifestyle with Karen + Solomon over a 2-day e-session.  It was fantastic to meet them in-person a few days before we started shooting as emails and Skype just aren’t the same and having a face-to-face chat helped inspire us to do an Autumn in Alberta themed photo shoot.

For Karen + Solomon the green spaces and fresh air were a welcome change from Hong Kong’s concrete landscape.  We spent an afternoon with them in the park feeding Canadian geese, running and playing in the crisp autumn leaves and introducing Karen to our favourite cupcake shop in Calgary, Crave.  She loves the colour blue (so Solomon got the pink one!) and Solomon only found out they were having a wedding cake (blue of course) when she told us about it 🙂  Solomon told us that she doesn’t eat much in Hong Kong but has been loving Canadian food so much she drives to Pete’s Drive-In after dinner for a milkshake!  Ah ha ha, we think that’s so cute 🙂

We love Alberta sunsets and couldn’t wait to share one with Karen + Solomon.  We combined a sunset with a rural setting and took them to a wheat field, all we were missing was a cow in the background 😉 because that would have been legend… wait for it… I hope you’re not lactose intolerant… dairy.

Of course, we had to include a trip to the Rockies!  Karen + Solomon’s countryside hikes with their Welsh Corgi in Hong Kong meant they were prepared for hiking around Lake Minnewanka and Lake Louise, where we even spotted some deer off the trail.

We had such a blast hanging out with Karen + Solomon. It was awesome hearing your stories about Hong Kong and the lifestyle over there. And we enjoyed sharing our stories here in Canada.  Of course they love the Canadian lifestyle;  American TV, movies and clothing at Abercrombie & Fitch.  And for those in North America who are reading this blog… what is hot in HK culture… they love Korean fashion now.  :O)

Thank you for all your hard work and we can’t wait to go to HK and visit the lifestyle and feast our faces over there.  We can’t wait!!! We are very honoured that you guys came all the way to do your photos with us here in Canada and now we have made friendships out of this. Congrats on your big wedding day in December and have fun with your friends in Phuket afterwards.  Sooo lucky! :O)

Love ya!
