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! 

Grey County Waterfall Engagement Session | Meg & Scott

I feel like I have been dreaming about this Grey County waterfall engagement session since I moved up here. So here's the thing... I cannot be near any body of water, especially one that moves, without desperately wanting to be in it. It's a problem. Most of the time I can keep that desire at bay, but when there's waterfalls... I mean... c'mon! So naturally when I shoot couples near any body of water I tell them that they're totally welcome to jump in if they want. One day I knew this would work. I wasn't wrong. When planning this session with Meg & Scott, they were completely open to suggestions for locations, but it had to be near water. (People after my own heart) When the idea of waterfalls came up, I jumped at the chance to scout every single waterfall in the area I could get to, and sent over a super long list of options with descriptions about the waterfall, the hike in, etc. Now you know my secret, I'm a nerd & I may have been a tad excited. 
Meg & Scott are adventurous and playful and they kept creeping closer and closer to the water. Scott had this twinkle in his eyes, so I casually mentioned that if they wanted to jump in, they were welcome to, I even had towels in my car just in case. They took a quick second to exchange glances and then they totally went for it. 
It was basically the perfect Sunday. The weather was spectacular, there were belly laughs had by all and we all ended up in the water at some point. Swoon! We started and finished at Joel's winery, Coffin Ridge, drank cider, ate cheese and olives on the patio overlooking Georgian Bay and played in waterfalls. 
More Sundays like this, please. 

Thank you so much for being so brave and adventurous with us, Meg & Scott. Watch out, we may try to get you rock climbing next, Scott. ;) 
Thank you to my second shooter and partner, Joel for being my second set of eyes, a great wine tour guide and our poison ivy spotter.

Scarborough Bluffs Engagement | Edwina & Ang

Seagulls, waves, surfers, sand. It's almost enough to make you think you're on the east coast. Falling asleep to the sound of fog horns and waves. Salt air filling your nostrils. Holding hands on the beach, talking till the sun goes down. 

Edwina and Ang are a little slice of heaven. Spending time with them makes my heart swell.
