Matt & Bonnie

FINALLY!! Matt & Bonnie have been together now for 6 years and they couldn't have met in a cuter way. Matt and Bonnie were both going to school in Calgary and Matt volunteered for "Safe Walk", now "safe walk" is a student operation within the school. They make sure that you get to your destination safely during the evening hours, and the rest is history!

I was not the official photographer so these are just a few of my leisure photos from their day!

This guy was awesome, he made hats, flower baskets, pretty much anything. You will see later on in the photos that he made a special hat.

I loved the sheets!

Bonnie & Matt had a tea ceremony later on in the day, just before dinner, where they served tea to everyone. I love experiencing different cultures and it was so nice to see part of Bonnie's culture integrated into the day.

Bonnie's best friend from High School!

Yoga on the Beach

So while we were in Cuba, I wanted to do a little photo shoot with me doing some yoga poses on the beach. This was probably the part of the trip that I was most excited for. As some of you already know last month I did a 30 day yoga challenge and was really impressed with some of the results that I had seen and super happy with actually finishing! So I wanted to somehow document this milestone in my life and what better way than doing some shots on the beach in Cuba! I asked Mark to take some photos at sunset as I wanted to get some silhouette shots too. I had so much fun doing this and love most of the pictures, it is really hard looking at them as I am so critical of myself. I didn't even think about how hard it would be to actually balance on the sandy beach, especially with a pretty strong wind and you couldn't really focus on one spot in the distance because nothing was still everything was moving which totally threw my balance off. Something I'm going to have to work on. ;)

Anyway here are some of the photos from our little project in Cuba
