Downtown Calgary couples session | Ben & Matea

Matea and Ben are two of my very best friends. So writing this blog on them was actually really hard!

I have known Matea since we were in grade 7 and in high school we later met Ben. Ben and Matea didn’t start their relationship until the summer of 2011. So yes, seven years later and we are still waiting for that ring. And when I say we, I really do mean WE. Sometimes I think I am more impatient about it than Matea but I really cant wait to fulfill my bridesmaid duties!

Its crazy to think that I have been doing photography for almost a year and that I  still hadn’t photographed these beautiful people. They were nervous like most couples usually are. I’m not sure if knowing me helped that or not but I am pretty proud with the end result!

My husband Jon and I drove down to Calgary to meet Ben and Matea for their session. They wanted a Urban feel to their pictures and I was up for the challenge! We had so much fun walking around downtown and finding cool places to take pictures. It was SOOOOO cold though. Like freezing. Matea didn’t complain once as she rocked that short little dress.

We of course ended our session with a shotgun on the rooftop of Ben’s apartment. It was a Saturday and that is the only excuse you need. We stuffed our faces with food and drinks at dinner and spent the night laughing and catching up.

I cant express the love I have for these two individuals. I love them separately and as a couple. Our lives is like an episode of Friends. They are the Monica and Chandler in my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
