When we met L+R in a cozy cafe in Hamilton, ON to discuss their wedding we instantly fell in love with them! We spent hours chatting about their big day, how they met and their vision! We were so happy when we got the "YES!" from them to not only capturing their upcoming wedding but also their engagement session! When L mentioned she wanted to shoot her engagement session at her family's farm that she grew up playing at just outside Port Dover - we were couldn't have said yes faster!
Capturing engagement sessions in beautiful outdoor locations is one of our favourite things to do, especially if that place holds a special spot in their heart! Not only do you get the beautiful natural light and a stunning backdrop that an indoor space doesn't allow - you also get the couple in their natural element! We love having our couples just run through fields like teenagers that are madly in love or get cozy to keep each other warm! You get the giggles, the intimate moments, all the smiles and you can really see their love shine!
The day we shot L+R engagement we were experiencing some cold weather here in Canada (cold is an understatement), but these two rocked it anyways! They ran through fields, did their best model walk, played tag, gave each other piggy back rides and laid in the long grass! They were down to try anything and "do it for the gram" even if that meant getting covered in mud or bugs haha! We had a BLAST - and the pictures show just that! What I love most about this session was how organic it was to photograph L+R - they were so natural with each other and I hope the depth of their beautiful relationship shows through in these photos :) Enjoy!
