Proposal sessions have to be some of my favourite things to do! Not only do you get to meet a new couple and have a great time grabbing some engagement photos for them, but before all that starts you get to capture the very beginning of their wedding story!
They can be a little nerve-wracking for us too as you never know exactly what is going to happen – by which I mean where they are going to stand and face (you can chat about it beforehand, but there is no adjustments possible during the main event). Although somehow I think the whole thing is more nerve-wracking for the one popping the question! But Peter did an absolutely marvelous job and it was so exciting to get to see the look of surprise and excitement on Alexis’ face!!
Dave doesn’t often join me for engagement sessions. But this session was a little different. The subjects were just as in love as our other couples, and there weren’t really any difficult shooting conditions to work in such that I would need a second set of hands, but we were heading to a location that was extra special, not only just for our couple, but for us too.
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.
