I met up with Erin and Paul right in the midst of the Winter Olympics, so of course, being proud Canadians, they had to do some photos wearing their red and white gear to celebrate! It was the perfect snowy day at Scotsdale Farm.
Welcome to the magical forest of the Kortright Centre in Kleinburg Ontario. This is where I met LIndsay and Kyle and Moose for their early morning engagement session. We were the only ones there which was peaceful and awesome. Hey couples - one benefit of getting up early for a sunrise or early morning session is that you are usually the only people there and its quiet and fun and you can get romantic without an audience :)
I had a blast this past fall at Rockwood Conservation Area, photographing a day full of new and past clients. Its always amazing when clients come back to see me year after year, and I cannot believe how big the gets have gotten!
Here are some of my favourites from 2017 - I had so many that I felt I needed to put them in categories this year!
Starting with THE MORNING OF, and continuing with Emotional Moments, LAUGHTER and JOY, Kids + Pets, SELFIES (because there are sooo many), Bloopers and Funny Moments, Party Time and Sentimental Moments.
Some wedding photographers will insist on you hiring a second photographer while other photographers I know prefer shooting alone. At the end of the day you are the one hiring the photographer and it will be up to you if you want one or two people photographing your wedding. To help make a decision, here are some factors to consider.
Jenna and Rory. They have a wonderful love story of two families who spent summers on the same lake. And since Jenna is a writer I'm going to let her tell you in her own words because they will sound much better than if I wrote them. Jenna and Rory got married on a mild fall day at a quaint restaurant called the Black Forest Inn, that they said "felt like the cottage", so it was the perfect place for these two cottagers to get married.
You have decided to do engagement photos! Yay! Now what?
Personally I like to think of an engagement session as a little date. If you were planning a romantic date night, would you go to a random park and cuddle under random trees? Probably not. Choose a place that is meaningful to the two of you. If that park was where you got engaged or first met, sure let’s go there! Or maybe you love going to local patios and enjoying a cold beer – then go there! Take the dog for a walk, browse your favourite book store together, or better yet, just stay home and cuddle on the couch!
Elise and Brandon's autumn wedding day turned out to be a cold, rainy and WINDY day, inside the barn at Cambium Farm, and that did not stop anyone from having a blast! They may have been bundled up in blankets, but the guests stayed til the end to show love and party with the Bride and Groom! Take a peek at the video and you will see how windy it was!
So many couples ask me WHY should we do an engagement session? What's the point? Especially if you are a private couple who won't be sharing photos of yourselves all over social media. Well, let me tell you some reasons why I love when couples choose to do an engagement session and maybe one of them will relate to you!
