{Karina & Roberto} Ottawa Latin Engagement session

We initially met Karina and Roberto at the Ottawa Wedding Show in March, and it was vendor/client love at first sight!  We had an amazing, effortless connection right from the start, and their consultation appointment at our home studio felt more like a visit with old friends! Much of their 2 hour visit was spent learning about their interesting, international love, their respective families,  and the gorgeous country of Venezuela, where they grew up and met.

Roberto first came to Ottawa for school years back, and once back in Venezuela with the beautiful Karina, decided to make the adventurous move to Canada a permanent one. In the process, he once again was separated from her for a time while they made all the necessary arrangements for her move.  Karina finally made her way to Ottawa…during the winter!  The Ottawa International Airport set the scene for their loving reunion, and we all agreed that it was one of the perfect spots for their engagement session.

Also a necessity?  Their precious golden retriever, Goldie!  Dog people are a special breed of their own, and these two are no exception-they arranged a special doggy flight complete with stopovers, naps, walks, and yummy treats for her from Venezuela so their family would again be complete in Canada!  Once we met Goldie, it was pretty apparent she is once awesome pup-despite the 40 degree heat, she sported a big pink bow with pride and even met a few boy dogs at the park, as any hot Latina would!

I know I always rave about how amazing our clients are, but I REALLY REALLY mean it this time 🙂 Karina and Roberto are two of the friendliest, kindest, truly beautiful people Brian and I have met along this journey, and it is with an immense amount of pride that we can share in their lives and present our images from their session…

What would a Latin engagement session be without a little dancing?

The falls at Hog’s Back park reminded Karina and Roberto of a city park in Venezuela, making for another special connection to their new home.

How amazing are those blue shoes?!?!

We LOVED spending the afternoon with Karina and Roberto, and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in September–in getting some of the details on Sunday, this one is going to knock everyone’s socks off!  Now, off to learn some Spanish in preparation…
