Barrie beach engagement photos in Summer
I met up with Brigette and Ryan near Johnson’s Beach for their Barrie waterfront engagement photos in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic (while keeping socially distanced, of course)!
There’s no doubt about it; 2020 has been a tough year…for most people it’s meant rearranging their lives in more ways than one…and for many engaged couples it’s meant postponing or downsizing their wedding to fit the limitations imposed from COVID-19 mandates. While it’s easy to dwell on the hardships of it all, I’ve been trying my best to look at this year optimistically, and to see some silver linings from this whole pandemic. One of those things that shines the brightest for me is how it relates to Brigette and Ryan’s wedding day…from the moment I met these two at Taylor and Josh’s wedding at Strathmere in early Spring of last year, I knew they’d be incredibly fun and happy people to get to know. They got engaged later that year (pre-COVID), and had planned their wedding to take place in an art gallery in downtown Barrie. Through a series of events that followed, plans were made for them to use a different photographer for their wedding in Barrie…that was until COVID-19 hit and rearranged their wedding day plans entirely. Now, instead of a huge gathering of over 100 people, they’ll be getting married on a private property with only their closest friends and family – socially distanced – by their side. While the smaller wedding might not be what they’d originally envisioned for their day, we know that there are so many positives to come from keeping things ‘micro’. These new plans mean I can now join them for their day and I can’t wait to celebrate their marriage this fall!
Not everything goes to plan, but everything has a way of working out in their strange little ways. Just over a month from today we’ll be celebrating Ryan and Brig’s wedding in Barrie and I am over-the-moon excited!! Countdown is on!! Enjoy these sneaks from their Barrie waterfront engagement session!
