Lindsay & Cody - Guelph Arboretum Engagement

Lindsay & Cody - Guelph Arboretum Engagement

I’m not sure whether it’s gold in the trees or maybe the couple wrapped up in a blanket, but there’s something about fall engagement shoots that radiate a warm feeling. When the colours and the light and the love all come together in the most perfect way, it’s hard not to be excited about what I was able to capture for the couple.

Of course it didn’t hurt that I shot with Lindsay and Cody on one of the best fall days in 2016 at The Guelph Arboretum. I’ve known Lindsay for almost a decade, and her kindness and sweet demeanour have never wavered. Maybe I’m biased because I’m a chihuahua-mom myself, but their little dog was the cutest and added SO much to the shoot. Having fur babies along for engagement sessions make things so much more personal, and take the emotion up a level or two.

I can’t wait to shoot their wedding this year! Here are some of my favourites from their October session.

Lauren & Dave - Kitchener Engagement

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!

Laura & Justin - London Engagement

It’s always great when a couple takes me to a location that they’re familiar with. They’ve already got certain spots in their mind, places that they’ve envisioned as their backdrop for quite some time. That was the case during Laura and Justin’s engagement shoot. Laura frequently runs along the Mill Pond near London, so she knew how perfect the setting would be. With a bit of walking and exploring, Mill Pond did not fail to impress.

With the light peeking through the trees, and the simple flowers that surrounded us, it all fit so well with how effortlessly their love translated on camera. Not one smile was unwarranted with these two - their love, their laughter, their overall happiness was the most natural of everything I captured during this session. Things run so smoothly when a couple is so comfortable with each other, even when a camera is present.

I can’t even imagine the photos that we’ll get during their wedding in Mexico next year. With such a beautiful and fun couple, it’s no wonder that my excitement level is through the roof!

Here are a few shots that stood out as my favourites this time around :)
