Is autumn your favourite season? Do you want gorgeous colours in your photos? If so, you should book a fall engagement photography session in Nelson BC. The colours here are phenomenal! The trees start to change colour starting in early September, and they last until well into October. If we go to a higher elevation, the colours come out even sooner! I moved here from Alberta over a decade ago, and Nelson BC’s autumn was the first time I’d witnessed colours lasting longer than a couple weeks. It was a shock!
I love everything about autumn. The sun casts softer, longer shadows. The temperature is mild. The shade is chilly but the sun is still hot. The air is clear of dust and smoke. And the trees are absolutely showing off! There are so many species of deciduous trees around Nelson BC. We get colours ranging the whole spectrum from red to purple.
Amanda and Jesse were a little nervous about their engagement photography session. I’m used to people feeling like they might be awkward–we all are! All of these photos are from an hour session where we just walked around in the trails above the Mountain Station parking lot in Nelson BC. I give a little bit of direction, but mostly I just let my couple embrace their awkwardness. Once we accept that it’s going to feel a little weird, it starts feeling less weird and the real smiles and connection come through. Sometimes a cider helps, too.
