Engagement sessions have always been very exciting for me because no two couples are alike during a photoshoot – it i a new adventure every time. With Ashley and Evan, it was as if we had known each other forever! I had such an amazing time taking photographs of these two and today I would lke to share some of my work with all of you.

Our photoshoot started at the high school where Ashley and Evan first met. It was such a windy day! Ashley had gotten her hair done specifically for this session and we were so worried about the wind blowing it everywhere. Luckily, however, we were able to get some sentimental shots that were not affected by the wind.

After the school, we headed over to a beautiful street location to do some photos with the fall leaves. This street, I found out while we were shooting, was actually Evan’s grandparents’ street. In talking about that, Evan had suggested that we could look at his grandparents’ property for some potential spots to shoot and in doing so, we found a little forest of beautiful trees that had all turned a vibrant yellow.

Simply perfect!

Our next stop for photographs was by a lake. This lake was near where Ashley and Evan had lived, once upon a time,and it was a place where they both spent a lot of time together. The sky was so beautiful and the sun peaked through just enough to highlight some of Ashley and Evan’s special little moments

The final spot that Ashley and Evan chose for their engagement photography was a trail area called 99 Steps. It was a forest full of beautiful fall colours and A LOT of leaves! After doing so many photos, it was time to have a little fun and relax – who said photoshoots weren’t allowed to be fun?

The two lovebirds had a full on leaf-ball fight, and let me tell you, no one held back!
No hard feelings were left as they ended with a hug.

After some walking around and climbing down 99 steps, we got some more beautiful photo – if only we could post them all!

Of course, we can’t forget the ring! Unfortunately, we didn’t forget to take a picture of the ring but we did forget the ring, inside the crack of a tall tree. After Ashley realized her finger was bare, there was a rush back with panic but luckily, the ring was still there. Note to self, DON’T LET YOUR CLIENT FORGET THE RING!

After 99 steps, we were supposed to be done, however, Evan asked me if I had any other ideas. Consequently, on my way too meet Ashley and Evan, I saw this gorgeous corn field on the side of the road and I thought “Oh if only I could take them there.” So, with that, Evan opened the door for me to offer! Ashley and Evan were very excited to try it out and it ended up being worth every second.

As a photographer, it easy to tell when two people are truly, madly in love, and, with Ashley and Evan, it was quite clear that they were!

We ended the shoot with a “We did it!” photo that just seemed to tie it all together.

This engagement session with Ashley and Evan was a lot of fun and we all enjoyed ourselves from beginning to end. It is extremely important that you pick a photographer that you get along with and it is just as important that we, the photographers, pick clients who we enjoy working with.

Thank you Ashley and Evan for being such good sports and for allowing me to capture your special memories together. Congratulations again on your engagement – I can’t wait to shoot your wedding day!
