When you have a cabin on a private island on a beautiful lake, it’s kind of a no-brainer to do your engagement session there. I wanted to stay forever. These two and their pup hopped on paddle boards for a bit and we ended the session with some gorgeous shots that I took from a kayak. Enjoy!
We started off with a plan. We loaded the canoe, and headed to the rock quarry that always had this beautiful, clear, blue water and limestone and forest all around. But you should have seen our faces when we showed up the the whole quarry was completely dried up. But Steve and Leah are just the type of couple that can make the most of any situation, so we told the story, and took photos in the dried up quarry. We had some fun with it and then headed out to find some other body of water to use. In the end, this shoot became a favourite. Adventurous, fun and romantic. Just the way I like em’.
This summer I fulfilled a little dream of mine. I did a session in Europe!! Ok it was my sister and her husband, and they got a pretty good deal (and I spent 10 days with them travelling and sight-seeing), but still. I was so honoured that they were willing to pay part of my trip in order to have me do a session (or 2) overseas. The photos turned out so beautifully! We did the first set in Paris, at the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. And then we did another set in Scotland, in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and at the Eileen Donan Castle. Fun fact, the photos at the castle were taken at 10pm! The sun sets so late there in the summer and the best part was that there were no other tourists around at that hour. Enjoy!!
This has to be one of my favourite shoots to date. First, shooting barefoot is always nice. Second, that light. And third, these two lovebirds are just so fun to photograph! They really know how to work it for the camera. The key is to have fun… and these two did just that. Happy 5 year anniversary guys!
