Call this what you may - engagement session, pre-wedding portraits, pictures of a couple with normal clothes, etc. I just like calling them portraits. Portraits with a side of breaking-the-ice. Not crucial but it certainly doesn't hurt. This was my first official shoot of this year (hello Canadian winter!). It takes some warming up photographer-wise - yeah know? Were my people skills a bit rusty - maybe? My ideas bank a little dry? Jill and Eric were cool as cucumbers. They followed me around as I repeatedly said "why don't we go here", "let's walk this way", "just stand there", "yep, yep" etc. I have them and Edmonton's epic beauty to thank for these!
