I believe Lesia and I met in 2013 at The Calgary Golf & Country Club where we both served for the summer. It was my first serving job and Lesia’s friendship was like a godsend. I was introverted and new to “adulthood” and felt out of my comfort zone 99% of the time except when I hung out with Lesia, both during and after work. Since then a lot has changed, she now lives in Kelowna, me in Ottawa. Although we’ve kept in contact it can be difficult staying in touch when you’re that far apart so it was a no brainer to reach out for a coffee at the very least once I knew I’d be around Kelowna. Somehow we ended up with a full-blown Vineyard & steamy beach Session!
Josh was a fantastic trouper and I honestly had such a blast with them. The vineyard is some property owned by family friends and I was so incredibly grateful to have everything line up perfectly while I happened to be in BC for another girlfriends wedding! The timing was perfect.
It was a dream long weekend filled with wine, beach naps, diving into the freezing cold Okanagan lake, this gorgeous session, one of my best girlfriends wedding and of course some time with my family.
I want you to enjoy these images as much as I do. They’re fun, playful, romantic and towards the end, steamy! haha. I think we all owe it to Josh and Lesia for sticking it out in the freezing cold lake. Two very brave souls who made it look like a warm romantic nightly swim!
