This engagement session was such a fun adventure! Della and Doug own a helicopter (Doug flies it) and asked if they could pick me up in Oyama. I drove out to meet them and they landed in a random field where I ran out to hop in. I felt like a secret agent. : D All the neighbors came out with their cameras- it was kinda neat. We took off and flew over the gorgeous green waters of Kalamalka Lake. This is where Della and Doug pretty much won my heart by saying I could pretty much choose anywhere (in reason of course) to touch down. So with my bird’s eye view, I spotted this great field that I knew I had to photograph in. They made me want to get a helicopter so I could take couples wherever I wanted to go ALL the time! haha. I wish!
We touched down and spent the next hour taking photos in a beautiful big green field. We saw an interesting red contraption from across the field and when we went to investigate we found this huge piece of farm equipment that looked like it had been sitting there for years. A tree had even grown out of it.
When we finally had to lift off, Doug flew us around the new Sparkling Hill Resort on the way back and it was fun to get such an up close interesting view of the gorgeous new development. Sparkling Hill Resort is where Della is getting ready for her wedding in August, before moving on to Summerhill Winery in Kelowna for the ceremony and reception!
I had a great time with Della and Doug- they’re a really fun couple with a bit of a rocker edge which I totally dig. Thanks so much for the adventurous shoot you two!
