It’s still hard to believe that the setting for Sonya and Michaels engagement shoot was on property owned by the soon-to-be brides family. Navigating through the mature trees and down leaf covered laneways with such a stunning couple felt like walking through a scene straight out of a romance movie. The weather, the lighting, the landscape - everything was working with us that day.
Sonyas mom was the perfect hostess and tour guide, bringing out soup to keep us warm and helping to point out all of the beautiful areas available to us on the property. When she got emotional after seeing an image of her daughter and future son-in-law on my camera, it brought a smile to my face that I couldn’t manage to get rid of. It’s clear every time she looks at her daughter, just how truly proud she is of her.
With such an immensely beautiful backdrop, it would be understandable if other details paled in comparison. But Sonya’s ring did the exact opposite. As if there wasn’t already enough of a luxurious feel to the shoot, this ring added to it tenfold. A rose gold band with a pear shape diamond, Michael did an exceptional job with this decision!
Sonya and Michael opted for an extended session, so it allowed us plenty of time for multiple outfit changes which gave us more variety throughout the day. You can see for yourself when you take a look at some of these moments from this beautiful fall engagement shoot.
