There's a Special Spot
that I love to take my couples to during warmer months. It's a perfect visual representation of summertime in the country. Beautiful trees, long grass, a river flowing through. My favourite part though, is that there's no cell phone reception. It sets such a wonderful precedent to be in the moment, and allows us to stay present, undistracted, and connected through the entire evening. (However, when you take a wrong turn and can't get ahold of your photographer who has already arrived... it can be a bit of a hiccup - as we learned - ha).
Teila helps manage a family business that sells hand-made chocolates. So naturally, we had to set up a wine and sweets picnic for her and Jayce's engagement session. We had the picnic under a large, stunning tree, popped champagne and watched golden hour turn into sunset. At the end of the night, the sky got dark, the wind started whipping, and instead of it ruining the evening, we took advantage and got some EPIC moody/dreamy shots before calling it quits and running to our cars.
Congratulations Teila & Jayce! Next stop, your WEDDING!
