Jill and Tyler’s Candle Lake Engagement Session
Jill and Tyler met and started dating in high school. After a few years on and off, they found themselves back together for good six years ago. Last year, during a road trip down the west coast, they planned to take a helicopter ride. When they booked, they were told that they would be able to take some photos prior to the ride. After the pilot snapped the first photo of them, Tyler dropped to one knee and proposed! They took that tour of the California coastline as an engaged couple, and will be getting married this summer in Waskesiu.
Jill and Tyler are lake people through and through, heading up to the family cabin at Candle Lake whenever they can get away. Turns out their cabin is literally around the corner from ours (and weirdly enough, this is not the first time this exact coincidence has happened to me!). Candle Lake engagement photos were obviously meant to be!
We planned their engagement session for a gorgeous summer’s evening in early July. They often walk their sweet dog Sunny at the Candle Lake Trout Pond, and wanted Sunny in some of the photos, so that’s where we began. Sunny wasn’t too keen on the horseflies (hence the killer face in one of the photos haha!) but otherwise it was the perfect spot. The calm evening allowed for the most beautiful reflections on the glassy water, and we somehow had the place to ourselves. After that, we stopped in the forest near Fisher’s Creek. The sun was low in the sky, setting the trees ablaze with golden light. We ended the session at Waskateena Beach, where the shallow water shone pink in the light of the warm evening sky as Jill and Tyler shared some quiet moments.
Their Waskesiu Community Hall wedding this June is going to be an intimate and laid-back day, celebrating their love in the beauty of the great outdoors <3
