When I was growing up I went to Upper Canada Village pretty much every year. It was only a short drive from home so it was a frequent school trip in elementary school and also a fun place for family trips day trips as well that didn’t involve sitting in the traffic of Toronto. When I got a little older, the frequency of these trips definitely lessened, but I still once every once in while either as part of my tourism job, or as a mother-daughter outing.
I remember one trip in particular. It was shortly before I left for university and my mom and I wanted to do something together. We walked around the village taking in the sites and displays and had a delicious lunch at the hotel (complete with scrumptious apple crumble). At the end of the day we walked through the village store, and of course picked up a freshly baked loaf of bread. If memory serves, that warm, soft loaf was gone before mom and I got back home.
When Marie-France + Jonathan mentioned that they wanted to do their engagement session at the Village, I was pretty excited. Not only was it a beautiful setting, but it was full of so many great childhood memories. Being able to photograph my clients there was a special treat for me and definitely brought the whole place into a new light.
These two were not only fantastic in front of our cameras, but they are just such great people.
I can’t wait to share more images from Marie-France + Jonathan’s session.
