{Jennifer & Matt} A fiery engagement session

When Jennifer & Matt came out to the studio to chat about their wedding photography, we spent some time getting to know them. When chatting about how they got to know each other, this older, floral pattern sofa came up. In part due to our creativity, and in part due to their excitement to do something different, we decided that doing some super hot, and fun photos involving a little Alcohol, a lighter, and the sofa would make for some amazing engagement photos. Luckily, we finished their engagement session just before the severe thunderstorm came through last Sunday!

Do not try this at home!

{Jennifer & Matt} A country engagement near Pakenham

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that this past Sunday Ivanette and I had two engagement sessions. Both couples are Jennifer & Matt, and both have their wedding in October of this year. I’m not sure what the odds of that are! For our first session of the day, we had the pleasure of capturing Jennifer & Matt at the farm she manages. Jennifer is a 7th generation farmer. Even with the heat, we had a nice relaxing afternoon in the fields. We finished their session off by cooling off in the water beneath the historic Pakenham 5 span bridge.

{Carolyn & Justin} Engagement session on the water near Kingston Ontario

This past Sunday Ivanette and I had one of the most relaxing engagement sessions. A few months ago, we had the pleasure of meeting with Carolyn and her parents at the studio to discuss their photography needs. We learnt the story about how Carolyn first met Justin. Justin works at a Marina that services a small lake just north of Kingston, where Carolyn’s family would spend the summer at their cottage. Over the years, Carolyn would routinely take the boat down to the marina to fill it up with gas. With a little encouragement from their families, and a few years later, Carolyn and Justin started dating, the rest is just history. We thought that the most fitting place for their engagement photos would be the marina where everything started.

It’s been a busy week! Ivanette and I photographed Kelly & Kevin’s wedding engagement session downtown in and around the market and National Art Gallery a week ago. We met with them on a nice sunny Sunday afternoon, and were pleasantly surprised to see they brought their dog Luigi! Both Kelly and Kevin are very relaxed and we had a great time!
