Couples Session

LOVElovelove - Memorable Moments from 2017 - Couple's sessions

I will be the first to admit that I have a horrible time picking favourites. It's not something I excel at. Top Tens are a little easier, but not much. They quickly become lists of 25, 30, 50. It actually gives me great anxiety when someone uses the favourite question as a way to get to know me. I can't pick favourites. I love them all! Why can't I just love them all? 

It's the same with images. I have a terrible time narrowing things down. I get so emotionally attached to moments and the subtle differences a half second can allow. 

I thought I'd try something a little different this year. Rather than overwhelm myself to the point of paralysis on a Year End round up, I waited until the week of Valentine's (my very favourite holiday, minus the commercialism. Ask me about our Valentine Tradition sometime). I'm going to give you three posts of some of the most memorable moments from 2017. I will fill your week with so many images of love! Couples, weddings, babies, grandparents, best friends. They're all here. Why wouldn't they be? It's all love. And I do love love. 
So here's to a new tradition of lovelovelove.... 

I hope you're still with me... because here comes round one: Couples.

Thank you to all of my amazing couples who got vulnerable, and silly, and adventurous and real with me. I love you all to pieces. 

Rainy Georgian Bay Engagement Session | Lindsay & Tom

There are so many ways to react when you realize you're about to get rained out of a session. You could get frustrated or upset, you could postpone, or you could embrace it. I love it more than anything when couple's are adventurous and embrace what nature has given us to play with. We hopped on a boat and headed out to a secluded island where we explored and adventured together for the evening. It paid off in the end... check out that sunset!

I'm not sure there was a single moment that Lindsay & Tom weren't smiling. They make each other laugh effortlessly and have these ease about them. It was definitely one of those evenings you wish didn't have to end. 

These two are getting married tomorrow, and I really can't emphasize enough just how excited I am. It looks like we're even going to get some sun this time around! 

London England Engagement Session | Vanessa & Simon

On our very first phone call, Vanessa & Simon explained how important London, England was to them individually and as a couple. They were excited about the idea of doing their couple's session in a place that meant something to them, so when I threw the idea out there of coming to England, they were 100% in. Our session felt far less like a photo shoot and far more like hanging out with long lost friends. They showed me around their neighbourhood and pointed out spots that were important historically and personally, they took me to their favourite pub for Sunday roast, told me stories about how they met and then showed me where that happened, they took me through gardens and down secret walkways, showed me bits of England both old and new. Then to top it all off, we had a gin tasting at a local distillery. I mean, any gin fan is a friend of mine. They had me at hello, and I definitely plan on keeping these two. 
What struck me instantly about the two of them was just how much fun they have together and how much they laugh. Not just little laughs, big, full body laughs that are contagious. 

Can't wait to laugh with you again soon.
