Saskatchewan Desert Engagement Portraits

When this submission came across my desk I was a bit stunned to learn that it was shot in Saskatchewan.  Now I know the Canadian prairies are more than just flat farm land, (which posesses a beauty all of its own) but I actually hadn't heard of this specific region and was delighted to find that JL Photo and their clients, Steph + Nolan, sought it out as the backdrop to their engagement session....
