The last few months leading up to Christmas wound up being the busiest time of the year for me, so I’m happy to finally sit back and reminisce about all of the wonderful couples I had the pleasure of working with recently.

Lauren and Dave’s love for one another was blatantly obvious when I first met them at a wedding that I shot last year. Shooting their engagement photos at such an authentic location just fit so perfectly with their personalities, I couldn’t imagine a better setting.

On a September day, we had the most ideal lighting. At an abandoned barn on the outskirts of Kitchener, all of the rustic wood and overgrown greenery made for the most romantic backdrop. It created a sense of privacy that adds to the photos immensely.

The emotion you see between the two of them was so real and so natural, it made it incredibly easy to photograph them. I always feel so privileged to spend time capturing the love and light that a couple like Lauren and Dave seem to radiate. I can’t wait to share in the excitement of their wedding day later this year!
