What defines you as a couple? Silly, adventurous, active, nerdy, romantic? Would you enjoy cycling around Niagara-on-the-Lake together through Vineland, or prefer to take a calm walk by the pier at sunset? Determining who you are as a couple can help to set the tone for your engagement session and make planning locations and activities that much easier.
When possible, I encourage couples to choose locations that are of significance to them. The place you first met, the spot he proposed, or even a hobby that you both enjoy together. Engagement photographs are about capturing who you are as a couple at this particular time in your lives. Choosing something unique will aid in making your images more authentic and meaningful.
Jolin and David took this advice and ran with it as they chose to incorporate some of their favourite pastime activities into their summer engagement session… picnics and doughnut munchin! Their session was captured on the grounds of Balls Falls, in the Niagara region, where we spent the better part of a warm summers evening exploring the park and ending the day with a picnic, complete with Beechwood doughnuts and sparking wine.
Here are a few of my favourites from their sweet engagement session!
