Red Tin Barn Engagement Photos | Spruce Grove, Alberta

The week we started planning Jason and Cassandra’s engagement photos at the Red Tin Barn in Spruce Grove was similar to every other week in the Edmonton area this summer. Pretty windy. Sort of cloudy and mostly overcast. And quite cold. Ideal for taking photos, outdoors?? Not really.

We had a date and location set for a few weeks already, but the weather on the day we planned was a toss-up. While planning, I sent Cassandra some other blog posts to help her plan out their outfits, but we almost overdressed because the weather turned around that morning. The weather turned for the better. Which almost made it worse. Because even on the drive to the Red Tin Barn out by Spruce Grove, it was SO bright. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun was beating down hot! In the end, it turned out to be the perfect day for fall engagement photos! It helps that the property that the Red Tin Barn is on, is surrounded by trees, with plenty of distance from the main road. It’s perfect!

When I arrived I was greeted by Kevin, one of the owners of the beautiful venue the Red Tin Barn.

He was quick to guide us around and show us all the favourite spots on the property. We probably utilized all of them, but I think I made some new favourites for sure.

Immediately after driving onto the property, I knew one place I NEEDED to shoot. Right in the driveway! The winding road and large trees covering the path made for the perfect location for photos. I cannot wait to recreate some of these shots on their wedding day with their friends and family present!

The property itself is so versatile, which is not what I was expecting while we were planning. We had almost made plans to go to a different location for 50% of the session, but we immediately changed our minds after we started shooting. Basically every time I turned around, there was somewhere else I was forcing Jason and Cassandra to cuddle up.

But, the best part about going the Red Tin Barn for Jason and Cassandra’s engagement photos was the fire pit. Immediately after arriving I saw it. I hesitated to ask if we could use it because I didn’t want to intrude. But Kevin happily started up a fire for us and I couldn’t have been happier about it.

I have never been more excited to shoot a wedding at a venue before. Especially since I don’t usually get to shoot there BEFORE the wedding! It really builds excitement!
