Jill + John | Engaged | Calgary Engagement Photographer

Last week I spent a few days in Calgary before arriving in Vancouver. I only planned on shooting some personal work out here, so when John and Jill contacted me about doing an engagement session for them, I jumped at the chance!

They are due to get married in September and have been together for almost 10 years. We met up at Crescent heights, an area of Calgary that has beautiful views of the city sky line and was a place Jill & John used to spend a lot of time meeting when they first started dating.

One thing you probably can’t tell from these images is that it was FREEZING cold. It  was -5 and with wind chill, it probably neared -10. Yep, it was that cold! My hands froze 10 minutes into the session and Jill & John assured me that I wouldn’t suffer from frost bite (yes, this was a concern for me haha!)..

We shot for 5 mins and retreated back to the car to warm up, then shot some more (and repeat). As the sun went down, we then headed downtown to take a few shots there. These two were awesome and made shooting the session easy. Thank you guys! I had a lot of fun hanging out with you!

I hope you enjoy the images :) and congratulations to you both!

Kickass dude! I used to live a few blocks away from that hill! Amazing shots as always!

I love the lens flare shots from the top of the hill. Nice work man!

Nice! They almost look warm! Haha. Their love certainly gives off great warmth. I really dig the look of that last b&w- the texture, light, composition of it– it all comes together really nicely!

Your use of light is just beautiful…well done!

Loving that gorgeous light and the location. Nice one!


Gorgeous work, dude! They look so happy together, and you’ve caught that perfectly. Gotta say my favorite is the second from the bottom – great capture!

The one of them standing in the street is to die for!!

Loving the lens flare mate!

Absolutely rockin set my friend, that light is just flaring up so beautifully and you’ve caught it perfectly!

Great work as always Sachin. The couple look positively cosy…love the ones in the grass and the second to last shot (‘artay’). Good stuff x

Your use of light made this session really work. Loved the sun flare and finishing off the series in the city. The urban scenery is a fabulous background.

Baller session dude. Shooting in the cold is so freaking hard, but they look super happy and comfortable.

Love it , very warm & sweet couple !!

Last one is Awsome!!! catch up in WPPI

Lovely work Sachin! So much love in these.
