Their love for one another is unmistakable. Needless to say, we were so excited when they asked us to capture their upcoming wedding. We could hardly wait to meet them IRL for their engagement session.

Bethany + Ryan Engaged!

Meet Bethany + Ryan. We first met these two super sweet lovebirds when they were in the bridal party of a wedding we captured a few summers ago. We were so excited when they asked us to photograph their special day, as well! Hooray! We met up with Bethany + Ryan at their country house in Waubaushene, Ontario on a mild winter’s day. They live in a beautiful area filled with picturesque tree-lined trails for miles on end. It is such a peaceful, tranquil sanctuary and a perfect spot for portraits!

Engagement Photography Session in Toronto, Ontario

Taylor + Greg Engaged!

Meet Taylor + Greg … and their adorable pup, Thea (isn’t she the cutest puppy ever)!?!! Taylor + Greg found us through their friends, whose weddings we’ve had the great pleasure of capturing through the years. We were delighted when they emailed and asked us to document their special day, too! For their engagement session, we traveled to their neck of the woods in Toronto. We were hoping for a fall engagement session, but as such with the Great White North, the weather has grown colder over the past few weeks. Although the calendar says autumn, the temperatures feel like winter wind blowing in. In true Canadian fashion, Taylor, Greg and Thea braved the cold and had tons of fun! We met at High Park and took Thea for a walk. After touring the area a little, Taylor’s parents showed up to doggy-sit while we continued on with the session. After a short hike, we decided to make our way over to Liberty Village for a change of setting. Taylor pulled up the ‘Waze’ app on Greg’s phone for instructions and her voice (which she programmed into Greg’s phone) directed our path. Love it! After a few moments in the village, we said our goodbyes and Taylor + Greg headed off to their ultimate frisbee date nearby. It truly was a great evening!

Photography Enagagement Session at Horseshoe Resort, in Barrie Ontario

Shannon + Chris Engaged!

Meet Shannon + Chris. When we first met Shannon + Chris to discuss their wedding, we instantly knew we liked them! They are so great at making each other laugh. Plus, they both love to joke around and have a good time, which made their engagement session super fun! We all decided it would be at great idea to do their portrait session at Horseshoe Resort (where they will be celebrating their wedding next year). Oh, how we love it there! All week long, the forecast called for a wet and chilly day; however, when we arrived, it couldn’t be a more perfect autumn day for photos! We toured around the area to a few spots at the base of the mountain, then drove up the hill to their future ceremony location. What an amazing view! We can hardly wait for their big day. It’s going to be beautiful!

Jacquelyn + Kevin Engaged!

Meet Jacquelyn + Kevin. Jacquelyn found us through her cousin Christina (one our favourite former brides … and couple … boy, can she and her hubby cut a rug!). In fact, Jacquelyn was in the bridal party! We absolutely LOVE when we get to capture the family member of a former couple’s wedding and celebrate another exciting moment in their family story. And Jacquelyn + Kevin are pretty outstanding! We can hardly wait for their big day!

Winter Engagement Session at Devil’s Glen Country Club in Glen Huron, Ontario

Mike + Lindsey Engaged!

Lindsey + Mike

Meet Mike + Lindsey. This super sweet couple got engaged (almost a year ago) at Mike’s happy place, Devil’s Glen Country Club near Collingwood, Ontario. That glorious day back in March 2016 of their original engagement in the woods brought with it a wild ice storm; however, the day we chose for their photography session a year later was unseasonably warm. Being that Devil’s Glen holds a special spot in their hearts (it’s where they first met!), we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to re-visit for their engagement session.

Dave + Kaitlyn Engaged!

Dave + Kaitlyn

Meet Dave + Kaitlyn. This good-humored couple (they love to laugh!) found us through their venue, one of our new “favouritest” wedding spots around Barrie, Vespra Hills. Love the location and staff! When we chatted about their ideas for an engagement shoot, they mentioned that they wanted a snow day portrait session. Well, that’s exactly what we got! Blustery winds, frigid temperatures and snow squall warnings were in full effect. You couldn’t ask for more perfect conditions for a winter wonderland theme.

Winter Photography Engagement Session in Barrie, Ontario

Sara + Mike Engaged!

Sara + Mike

Meet Sara + Mike. We first met these two at our place a few months back. From the moment they spoke about their engagement story, we were instantly delighted. Mike surprised Sara with a proposal hidden inside of a fortune cookie (which you could imagine took some serious preparation and planning)! Sara read the fortune, BUT he had stepped out of the room to get the ring, and heard a scream coming from the other room. He ran back to see if she was okay and realized she had read the fortune, and in his hurriedness to check on her safety, he forgot the ring in the other room. So, he had to go back and get the ring and the rest is history. Seriously, could these two be any cuter?!? We knew then and there that we had to incorporate the fortune cookie into their engagement session.
