Oh my! ‘Tis the season for winter engagement sessions. This is what I’ve been waiting for… As much as I dislike the frigid temperatures of winter – I love, so much, shooting couples in the snow. After an intense few days without power following the ice storm, here in Ontario we decided to forgo a city session and stay close to her family home. The farm fields around Orangeville provided for a lovely backdrop. From one of the shortest days of the year to the longest, on June 21 – I can’t wait for their Muskoka Wedding.
“We did it! We did it! WE DID IT! Yeah, we did it!” Anyone know that tune, let me know… Points to whoever can name it first. My sister excluded.
I am over-the-moon-happy about this session. I am so happy about it for a couple of reasons; we got lucky with weather, blue skies, light, and sunset but beyond all of that Stephanie and I may have convinced Michael that he is NOT in fact, horrible in front of the camera. I’m hoping when he sees this he’ll realize how great he looks in front of the camera. How fantastic his piercing blue eyes are, what a great jaw line he has, that it’s ok to let his guard let his guard down just a little bit and maybe, just maybe let a smile out…a small one. I hope from now until forever Michael, in fact no one, will ever utter these words again “he’s not great in front of the camera…” We did it! We did it! Michael!
Ok, so that’s plenty about his awesome-ness.
This Muskoka Wedding can’t come soon enough. Not true actually, it could come too soon, winter would be too soon. I’m so looking forward to their SPRING wedding at Port Cunnington Lodge. Their details, her dress, the venue (a very favourite of mine), and to top it all off it’s going to be a full day of documenting! I really do love shooting a wedding day from beginning to end.
We had such a ball playing in the snow yesterday. Riely, their sweet Golden had the most fun of course. From his family cottage on Lake of Bays, to the neighbour’s beautiful sparkling pine forest and even Port Cunnington it was a full afternoon. Loved it lots. Got to wear my new shooting pants too!
Cheers to you both. Stephanie, tell Michael he’s awesome. Michael, your bride is flipping stunning! She’s awesome too but not just because she’s pretty. This girl is running a successful business in the heart of the city, in a field that is wickedly competitive. You two should be very proud of yourselves!
