Wild Hearted Wanderings -- Ashley {May 30, 2015}

Ashley and I met up Saturday morning for coffee at Phil & Seb on 4th, and the first thing she told me was that she brought an instamax camera to document the entirety of our day together; immediately I knew that we were going to have such a fun time together! She also took out her phone to instagram our coffees; another thing that made it clear that this free spirit was right up my alley! One of my favourite things about hanging out with other photographers is the mutual and non-judgemental understanding that we need to take a lot of iPhone/Instagram shots, it's all part of the business ;) haha. kaihla_tonai_intimate_wedding_elopement_photographer_1466

Phil & Seb was a madhouse that morning, so we took our coffees to go & headed West! We found ourselves at Grassi Lakes (the base, not the top! We didn't actually hike that day haha waaaay too busy!), then Spray Lakes, and then finished off the day together at my absolute favourite place to eat in Canmore: Communitea! If you happen to wander into that place the next time you're in Canmore, be sure and try the turkey, white cheddar, and apple sandwich. MMMMM.

"Ashley, I am so beyond excited to see how you continue to challenge yourself to grow + evolve as a person over these next couple of months. All the tools that you have ever needed to do this have always been deep down inside of yourself; you are already on the best path,  now you just have to dig down deeper.  You have a message that wants to be shared + heard by those around you, and I am eagerly awaiting the day when you can tell me, without hesitation, just what that message is".
