What do you get when you combine beautiful people with an amazing location and an intimate atmosphere? Magic. That’s the best word to describe Clayton and Carlee’s “date night out” engagement session in downtown Edmonton.

We were blessed to photograph a majority of their engagement session in CRAFT Beer Market restaurant and bar (can you believe they have over 100 beers on tap! It might as well be called paradise), and we wanted to make sure we used the unique decor and ambiance to showcase the couple in the midst of such amazing surroundings.

After we were finished in CRAFT we also spent time at The Westin and quickly ran outside for a few twinkle light photos (it was -30, by Carlee and Clayton were troopers!).

Finally we finished up with a romantic view of the city skyline from their hotel room. The last photo of the evening was a challenge because the room had to be completely dark and a flash would spoil the ambiance of the cityscape. So we used the small light from Mark’s iPhone to throw enough light on the couple, while still keeping the mood. It worked perfectly!

We had such a blast with these two and can’t wait to photograph their wedding next summer.
