This was one of those times that we had the vision, but no couple – and we took it to Facebook to hold a quick contest and give out a free couples connection shoot.

We were certainly not disappointed with the amount of entries we got for couples willing to head out to Gimli, in the cold, and help us make the magic happen.

Sasha and Branden were both part of a bridal party for a previous wedding we shot – so it was fun to get out with them again, but this time make them the focal point of our shoot.

They did fantastic – it was a windy cold one, and they had to use each other to warm up, but that also helped heat up our shots. This romantic, icy, nautical photo shoot is another one of our favs, and as usual, I had a hard time narrowing down the pics… So, without further adieu, scroll down and get lost in their lovey goodness!
