Engagement Photography Session at Belcroft Estates in Gilford, ON

Brittany + Martin Engaged!

Meet Brittany + Martin. On a beauty Canadian fall evening, we got the opportunity to meet up wth this lively and adorable couple (and their darling dog, Dixie) under the colorful trees of Belcroft Estates. One of our favourite wedding venues is Belcroft Estates, so we were delighted to discover that not only would we get to capture their wedding at this location next year, but their engagement session, as well. It was so wonderful to explore the enchanting grounds of the estate with Brittany + Martin and get to know them a little bit better. They have such a sweet story of traveling to Barrie for college and finding love in the process.

Nancy + Steve Engaged!

Meet Nancy + Steve. This sweet couple met and fell in love at a local establishment right here in Barrie. For their engagement session, we thought revisiting one of their favourite spots downtown would be a fun idea. But first, family time. Nancy + Steve are the proud parents to two downright adorable little children, so we thought it would be super fun to invite them for a few family photos to start the session. For the family portraits, we brought along our junior junior assistant (our little guy) who’s an expert in getting children to laugh. Seriously, his mastery in this skill is unrivaled. After a few family pics, we were able to spend some time with just Nancy + Steve for a fun night out on the town.

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!

Winter Engagement Photography Session in Midhurst, Ontario

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.

Engagement Photography at Drysdale’s Tree Farm in Egbert, ON

Andrea + Derek Engaged!

Andrea + Derek

Meet Derek + Andrea. A super sweet couple that we met this past winter (one year prior to their wedding date to be exact) to discuss their upcoming wedding at Drysdale’s Tree Farm. We loved hearing all about their love story, and were even more thrilled when they asked us to capture their wedding day! Derek loves trees. In fact, he is a professional tree climber. We knew we had to incorporate this skill into their portrait session. This was the first time we actually photographed a couple up in a tree. How cool is that!?! We all decided that Drysdale’s would be the perfect location for their summer engagement session, since this would be a completely different time of year than their winter wedding. That way we could capture the changing seasons of this scenic tree-filled sanctuary (one of our favourite wedding venues around the Barrie area).

Wedding Photography Fusion at Barrie Country Club in Barrie, Ontario

Jacqueline + Aaron | Wedding Photography Video in Barrie, ON

Jacqueline + Aaron are married! We met Jacqueline’s mother last year to discuss their upcoming wedding, while the couple was planning their move back to Barrie from Alberta. After hearing their story, we could hardly wait to meet these two. Once they arrived back in town, we met them at Barrie Country Club for a fun mini engagement session and a few holes of golf. They both love golf, so it was perfect that their wedding day was at one of our city’s finest golf clubs. This is their wedding story.

Engagement Photography Session at Sunnidale Park in Barrie, Ontario

Carly + Jordan Engaged!

Carly + Jordan

What an adorable couple, right? We have truly been looking forward to this engagement session ever since the first day we met Carly + Jordan last year. We nearly ended up rescheduling this photography session due to the unseasonably chilly forecast. We watched the snow, rain and hail fall all morning. Yes, snow in May! Unbelievable! Thankfully, we decided to go ahead with the session despite the unpredictable weather, and what do you know … the sun came shining through!
