The weather this Fall has been really weird. At first it seemed like Summer just wouldn’t leave and then it was gone in an instant leaving everyone oh so cold, only to return for a day or so here and there. It was really hard to gauge when the Fall leaves would look their best and to figure out dates for our couples who wanted their engagement sessions under all those gorgeous colours.
But, in the end, everything worked out and Rowan + Andrew ended up with a truly stunning background for their engagement session at the Arboretum as the leaves were absolutely perfect and the temperature wasn’t that bad either.
I have a particular fondness for the NCC Greenbelt trails (I specifically love the ones that surround the Stony Swamp area). Not only are they beautiful, but also because they remind me of several trails and forest areas that I frequented when I was growing up back home.
I found myself on these trails so often that for a long time, I had a bag of bird seed in my car at all times, and now my camera bag is often home to a small pack of it (so much so that there is almost always a few loose seeds at the bottom of my bag).
Sadly, I don’t find myself out on the trails as often as I used to, but since that time is taken up by clients and their sessions, I am definitely not complaining. But I do love when my work gets to overlap with my time spent on the greenbelt trails, so when Christine + John mentioned that they were interested in the Jack Pine Trail for their session, I was very happy.
Whenever a couple interested in an engagement session books their wedding day with us, we put a little note in their file and on our calendar for the season and/or month they are interested in for their engagement shoot. That way, as things get closer we can reach out and set an actual date for the session and make sure we don’t miss the prime of the season. So right away I knew Christine + John wanted a Fall engagement session among all the beautiful foliage that we know and love.
