So a little bid of my driving adventures before we get into the real post – not more than 30 minutes before I arrived for Kirsten + Kyle’s engagement session, my car was pretty much in a ditch and needed to be pulled out by the super nice farmer Paul and his tractor. So to say that driving down to Perth was a bit treacherous at times is a little bit of an understatement.
But it was so a million per cent worth it as these two, in this location, with all this gorgeous fresh, falling snow was absolute heaven and so worth the drive!!!
I often go driving around the city looking for interesting spots for sessions (there are so many random spots marked on my phone’s map for future reference). And it was about two years ago or so that I found some really cool forested areas out in Kanata. I have suggested them to a few couples as possible spots for their engagement session, but for various reasons (mostly having to do with the season), they didn’t get selected, until now that is. And although I absolutely love this park/trail/forest with its super cute bridge, adorable paths and great light, I think Chantalle + Sebastien could have made literally any spot look like a million bucks!
We are fortunate enough to work with couples we really love and who share a similar outlook when it comes to their wedding days. They trust us to be able to capture that for them and it really does mean the world to us. And sometimes we find couples (or rather they find us) that we really, really click with. Couples who have that down-to-earth, genuinely kind nature we are drawn to. The nicest thing about all of this, is that we end up having so much fun each and every time we get to hang out with them. Patricia + Mike are, without question, one of these couples!
So as all of your friends and family have probably notified you through social media, it’s snowing again – and not just a little either. Despite the fact that the snow was almost gone from most yards and the temperature was quite delightful outside recently, the chilly wind and snow are back.
But I’m not complaining because the fresh snow made for an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for Patricia + Mike’s winter engagement session, which was made all the better by the fact that these two were an absolute delight to spend an afternoon with!
Okay, so you know you want to do an engagement session, and you even know when you want to do it, but now you’re stuck on the where? There are so many options available to you when it comes to a location for your engagement session and yet somehow you can’t think of even one!
When it comes right down to it, the most important thing to consider is that the location makes sense to who you are as a couple and what you like to do together. So with that in mind, here are a few tips on how to choose the perfect location for your engagement session!
