On Victoria day last month I ventured up to Alliston, ON to photograph an engagement session for Nicole and Robert. They’re tying the knot on June 17th, 2017 in Toronto.
This was a special session as Nicole and I have been best friends since the 8th grade, so we’re closing in on 15 years! From our emo days of listening to My Chemical Romance in the halls of our High School or skipping class to meet AFI, through different colleges and career paths and many adventures, it’s crazy to think in 4 days I’ll be photographing her wedding.
They met about 5 years ago while working as chefs together at the Auld Spot in Toronto (aw, kind of like No Reservations except without the kid & stuff.) After 5 years together he popped the question and she said yes! These two compliment each other so well and I can’t be happier for them.
They weren’t planning on doing an engagement shoot but I’ve known Nicole to be a bit shy in front of the camera so I convinced them to do a little trial before their big day.
We drove around Alliston looking for some locations to shoot at. We started at a nearby park and then headed to a Heritage Farm and of course found ourselves in a random and smelly field but it was worth it. Take a look at some of my favourite shots below.
The last two are a couple of the outtakes, including our version of American Gothic by Grant Wood. I had so much fun, I don’t think I’ve ever laughed this much during a shoot. I can’t wait for their big day! Let the count down begin!
If you’re looking to get portraits or engagement photos done I’d love to hear from you! Currently looking for alternative and bad ass couples for Summer/Fall 2017. Please use the contact form for details!
