Kristi + Michael Engagement [Windsor Engagement][Winter Engagement Photos][C&E Collective]

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade (thanks Bey for that nugget of wisdom). When life hands you a snow storm in the middle of March, you hide out in a casino lobby and pose your life away in front of gambling seniors.  Kristi + Michael’s engagement session didn’t go exactly as planned, but hey, that’s okay!  Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches.  This actually wasn’t just an engagement session either, these two got married at the courthouse yesterday! I was honoured to be a part of your day and am so looking forward to the big celebration on New Year’s Eve this year! Fingers crossed for some mild December weather so you don’t have to freeze your butts off outside! In the meantime, enjoy these images of a snowy, winter engagement session!   DSC_1305

2016 Engagement Favourites [Engagement Photos][C&E Collective]

dsc_9374
WHY IT’S MY FAV: This was one of my absolute favourite rings of this wedding + engagement season.  It’s so beautifully unique.  I haven’t seen a ring like it since + my bet is that I won’t see a ring quite like it again. Rafaela also had the perfect hands for modelling with a soft pink manicure to boot!
dsc_4935
WHY IT’S MY FAV: I love the easiness of this photo.  Jamie’s hair also did this perfect little flip when she turned around to look at me + HELLO, I love a good hair flip.  I’m also a huge fan of the tones in this photo – soft + creamy + just the way I like them!
dsc_4852
WHY IT’S MY FAV: I love the expression on Carly’s face in this photo.  She’s giving my camera the smize it deserves.  Even though I’d like to credit my photography skills for this one, I really don’t think these two could take a bad photo if their life depended on it!
dsc_4695
WHY IT’S MY FAV: I think by now you’ve probably realized how much I love that golden sunlight at dawn + dusk.  It reminds me of Pride and Prejudice (my all-time favourite movie) and there’s nothing more romantic to me! This photo was taken on the side of a country road proving that you can make any location magical!
dsc_3876
WHY IT’S MY FAV: This photo is so fun to me! I brought along sparklers to Vanessa + Josh’s engagement session + luckily for me, they were totally down to trying anything! Turns out the sparklers were terrible (shame on my for buying them at the dollar store) but we managed to get some pretty sweet pictures nonetheless!
dsc_2801
WHY IT’S MY FAV: Oh look, more golden light. It will just never get old for me.  Jess, Adam + I snuck onto a field to grab this shot and it was so worth it! Also another fun note, these two hadn’t announced their engagement yet which was super fun for me to be apart of…I love a good secret!
dsc_3903
WHY IT’S MY FAV:  First of all getting Tim (my brother-in-law) to smile is basically like pulling teeth so I consider this shot a huge win! Also I love that these two are smiling in the exact same way…the cutest.
dsc_9293
WHY IT’S MY FAV: I absolutely love the symmetry, lightness + hues of this image. Anytime I’m able to shoot by the water makes me giddy with joy! I’ve loved the lake ever since I was a little girl so whenever I get the chance to photograph near it, I jump at the opportunity!
dsc_4795
WHY IT’S MY FAV: This is my brother + new sister-in-law Rachel and they look so genuinely happy in this photo I had to post it. I also find the bokeh in this image particularly beautiful.
dsc_2467
WHY IT’S MY FAV: Okay so this one technically isn’t an engagement photo but I really wanted to throw it into the mix anyways.  I wanted to shoot at the local county fair this year with all of the lights + colours, I thought it would make for a super cute photo session! Josiah + Sarah tagged along with me for the evening (and were seriously the best models a girl could ask for) + the images turned out exactly how I had envisioned!
dsc_2865
WHY IT’S MY FAV: This year has been a wonderful year of learning + growing for me in the art of photography.  This image represents a number of different things that I’ve been working on.  One is shooting tack sharp images from a distance + two is learning different editing techniques – both which I hope to have nailed in this image (but I’ll let you be the judge…)
dsc_4906
WHY IT’S MY FAV: Another shot of Carly + James and their model selves because they are a photographer’s dream.  I particularly love this image because it showcases Carly’s gorgeous vintage ring + that soft summer light!

WHEW! So many images, so little time. Keep an eye out later this week as we round out the year with my favourite wedding images of 2016!

Nathan + Priya [Toronto Engagement Photos][Toronto Island Engagement][C&E Collective]

This engagement session was such a blast.  I haven’t been to the Toronto Islands in YEARS + I was super excited to check it out.  I met up with Priya + Nathan at the ferry terminal (which also happened to be a PokeStop so it was crazy busy with people just sitting around) and we set sail to the islands.

These two are the perfect mixture of fun + romance which makes my job SO easy.  We trekked around Ward’s Island finding all of the spots (which there are a ton of) + waited for the sun to set before heading back to the mainland.  It was such a pleasure to capture these photos for Priya + Nathan.  You two are wonderful + so thoughtful. Can’t wait for the wedding ❤

Rafaela + Michael [Niagara-on-the-Lake Engagement][Vineyard Engagement][C&E Collective]

Niagara-on-the-Lake is the perfect romantic backdrop for engagement photos. These two had their 6 monthiversary (if that wasn’t a word before, it is now) here and thought it would be the perfect place to come back to for their photos. I couldn’t agree more, I love this area. Historical buildings mixed with tons of parks and a waterfront(!), it really couldn’t be more romantic (especially at sunset, just an added bonus).

Michael kept Rafaela laughing the whole time, it was perfect 🙂

On our way out of town, we stopped at a vineyard and grabbed some more shots as the sun was setting. Golden hour is just 👌

Thank you to both Rafaela + Michael for letting me capture this moment of your life. Can’t wait for your wedding, you are both such a joy 🙂
