And the winner is…
Melissa and Jamie won a free engagement session after attending a wedding show held at the Ajax Convention Centre back in April. Lucky couple!
As with any engagement session, location is important. I especially love when it has meaning to the couple (and is also somewhere new I get to shoot). We decided on a local park that they often take their dog, Charlie, for walks. I had never been there before so I was excited to see what it was like. I loved it. A quaint little beach, it was perfect.
Melissa and Jamie were a little nervous being in front of the camera. They were worried about all the same things that everyone worries about. Do we look silly, fake, cheesy! As I explained to them (and now to all of you), you’re not alone in those feelings. Trust me when I say, everyone gets nervous, even me! It’s not everyday that there is a camera pointed on you for an hour or more at a time. However, if you trust in your photographer, trust they know what they are doing, try to feel at ease and it will all fall together naturally and perfectly.
These two are the cutest couple and I really enjoyed getting to know them and their pup. They love each other (and Charlie) to pieces and I wish them a life long love and all the happiness that goes along with it.
