Michelle contacted me last year after seeing engagement photos I shot a few years ago. To be honest, that was my second engagement session so I was amazed that my old work left an impression on someone.
Michelle and John have been doing long distance with John in Chicago and Michelle in Ottawa, but now they're finally together and will get married this August! The two have been amazing at communicating and sharing bits and pieces of their lives with me
We first met up at Osgoode Hall in downtown Toronto to start. What a beautiful spot for photos. I'm not from Toronto, so I always thought this building was off limits. Then we headed towards Hart House and other University of Toronto spots. But before that, we stopped at this parking garage at Nathan Philips Square because the light was just PERFECT.
Engagement shoots are a perfect time to get to know each other and build trust. I recommend to couples getting ready for their shoot to not worry too much about the actual photos, but to have fun and enjoy the time with your partner but also with the photographer.
