Engagement shoots are the best way to get to know couples. Often photographers are booked by their clients so far in advance before the actual wedding, and we need this time to build that connection all over again. And also, they're just fun.
SURPRISE! Engagement photos are always one of my favourite things to shoot, but a surprise one is sooo exciting! Goind and I coordinated how we were going to capture his beautiful and incredibly well-thought out plan to propose to his girlfriend weeks in advance. He really set it up well, all the way down to pretending he was out of the province before surprising her at their apartment. Here's a sample of the photos that capture just a glimpse of the shock and excitment :)
Joel and Denika are two sweethearts separated by SEVERAL provinces between them (he's in the GTA and she's out east!) so I loved being able to take these images for them. They happened to both be in Guelph for Easter Weekend, and even though it was much colder than it appears in these photos, we captured some great stuff. Aren't they unbelievably photogenic??
