Confession time: when I first moved to Edmonton, I thought it would be just prairies and farmland. I thought if I ever wanted to see water again, I’d have to head back to BC (sorrryyy).

THANK GOODNESS I’ve been proven wrong! Pigeon Lake is less than an hour away from the city and makes for a nice getaway for an afternoon or weekend!

Both Ann & Kjell’s family have cabins that back onto Pigeon Lake (on opposite sides too!), so it was the perfect location for their engagement session. I loved that they brought their dog, Goomba, too who couldn’t wait to jump in the water as soon as we arrived!

BTW, Ann & Kjell own Copper Branch on Jasper Ave, a newly opened vegan restaurant based out of Montreal! Make sure to check it out next time you’re in the area (and then head to Pigeon Lake for a day off!).
