Manchester square is a new commercial development in Edmonton that makes you feel like you’re walking the streets of Europe. It is adorned with beautiful murals by local artist, Alixandra Jade Art & Design Co and is situated close to 124th street which is such a charming part of Edmonton. With Manchester Square being a place that Kelsey and James frequent often, it made the perfect backdrop for their engagement photos!
In the fall of 2019 I met Kelsey and James at Block 1912 Cafe for their wedding consultation. After learning about who they are, their relationship and their wedding plans I instantly knew I wanted to work with them! Their wedding this summer at Trestles Edge is going to be so beautiful and I cannot wait to photograph it! Due to the uncertainties of the pandemic their original wedding date was postponed from 2020 to 2021. I truly admire how these two have supported each other through the past year. I will likely be crying behind my camera 99% of their wedding day- it is going to be so meaningful and special.
Now- just to talk about how fun and amazing Kelsey and James are. They arrive to their engagement session dressed like a million bucks AND they brought a gorgeous vintage couch + beautiful flowers! I had NO idea they were bringing these items. I’m pretty sure I squealed and did a happy dance when they arrived… I was one happy photographer!!! I LOVE when couples bring styling items to their session- it is such a fun way to make your session unique and it helps elevate your imagery. We actually had people ask if we were photographing their elopement; we all laughed and were like- nope! Just an engagement session! The suit, the dress, the heels, the flowers, the couch, the snuggles, the smiles, the connection, the joy, the FUN! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again but I work with the BEST COUPLES EVER! I had so much fun at this Manchester Square engagement session! I hope you love the photos!
