When it comes time to planning an engagement session, I always encourage my couples to choose a location or activity that’s meaningful to them…
Well, when it came time to planning Lara and Dom’s engagement session, these decisions came totally naturally!
The inspiration for their engagement photos in the Arboretum came from the day that Dom asked Lara to become his wife: a champagne picnic followed by a surprise proposal in the Arboretum!! As soon as I learned the story of their proposal, I knew we’d have to go back to that very place where Dom asked Lara to be his wife, and the vision for their session started to come together!…
And that’s when the bicycle came in…not only do these two participate in long-distance triathlons and Ironman races across Southern Ontario, they both have an impeccable sense of style: Lara in her blush tulle skirt, and Dom in his checkered button-up. These two were absolute perfection in front of my lens.
This bicycle engagement session in the Arboretum – full of pretty people, beautiful light, and the cutest teal bicycle – has me totally smitten!
When clients show up to a session with hair this pretty, it makes building confidence behind the lens a breeze! Many thanks to Joanne at Showpony Hair for perfecting Lara’s hair for this session!
In running gear, jeans, or a blush tulle skirt, Lara is a natural beauty! Shannon at One Fine Beauty polished off her look with total perfection.
Lara has been sneaking me behind-the-scenes photos on what’s to come for her wedding day at Le Belvedere, and let me tell you, it’s absolute perfection! So much pretty and excitement to come!! Lara, Dom, I simply can’t wait!! xo
