I shot two amazing engagement sessions this weekend; both similar in theme but different in taste. I thank both of these brides for contacting me. Their faith in my work inspires me to keep going. 2012 is going to be an amazing year. Special thanks to Matt Miller's family for inviting Michael and I to spend the day with them at their gorgeous Orillia century farmhouse. Their home was situated on a sprawling acreage and after our shoot, we were welcomed into their home for some delicious food and wine.
Lesley contacted me through email after a recommendation from a venue that I second shot at. We had never met and after our 3 hour drive yesterday morning, we were greeted with warm smiles and carte blanche for creativity. This couple was stunningly beautiful and great looking to boot. That's right, their inner beauty paralleled the exterior. The love that a photographer witnesses as we quietly do our dance and try our best to remain unnoticed is something that makes me absolutely grateful for this job. Their love is evident; their hearts on the same lovely page. What an absolutely amazing day.
I have had the absolute privilege of working with so many amazing couples. I also have to thank my cousin Lindsay who has grown into the most beautiful woman. I remember her as a little girl and before she was even engaged she stopped me at Chapters where I was meeting my very first clients and she exclaimed that when she does get engaged, I'm the one she wanted to capture the day. Low and behold, that day came, and she said yes. Thanks Brigitte for arranging for us to use your sister in law's beautiful property. Sometimes it takes multiple hands to orchestrate the logistics of an out of studio photo shoot.
Those hands are so appreciated.
Here are some photos from Matthew & Lesley's shoot yesterday as well as Lindsay & Andrew's on Saturday.
