Summer | Edmonton Wedding Photography

A challenge that I took on this month was to define the word “Summer” in a photograph.  To me summer isn’t the same without a health dose of nostalgia.  When I was young my parents had a tent-trailer and my brother and I would look forward to camping in it all year.  Come July and August they would load up the car (it was a silver Monte Carlo with plush burgundy interior), hitch up the trailer and we would head off for a weekend of fun.  In one of my mom’s photo albums there is a photograph of me and a “friend” I had met at the campground lying on the ground with elk in the background.  So this summer when we encountered elk grazing in the playground in Jasper National park I asked my two youngest kids to lie on the ground and re-create one of my favorite photographs.  To me camping means summer; and every time I load up the car (now a white mini van named Vince) and hitch up the tent-trailer I know I am heading off for a summer adventure filled with fun!
