Anyone who’s been to Wakefield knows that the scenic drive is something to look forward to, and these Wakefield Mill engagement photos with Laurie and Matt were the icing on that cake!!
Brides often ask me: “Hey Amy, where’s the best place to go for engagement photos”? This is a seriously tough question, and if I’m being real honest, the answer is always changing…and you know why? ‘Cause for me, finding the perfect location for engagement photos is rarely about seeking out the prettiest/most popular/most instagram-worthy spot for photos…it’s more about finding somewhere meaningful to YOU and where YOU feel comfortable and at ease being yourselves on camera! Whether that be taking your dog for a walk, snuggled up on the couch, or the location where you got engaged, this will always be my most valuable piece of advice for where to take your engagement photos!!
When it came time to choosing a location for Matt and Laurie’s engagement photos, the answer almost came easily! The Wakefield Mill is where Matt proposed and is also a location that these two have visited over the years to unwind and sneak away from the bustle of life in Ottawa. Plus, major bonus was the scenic backdrop of the falls, and the most perfect Summer light through the Wakefield trees…these two shone on camera and looked like the happiest pair in this relaxing and meaningful venue. Now that’s the perfect location for engagement photos!!
This was my first time visiting the Mill, and boy was I surprised to find such a private gem tucked up in the hills of Wakefield! Enjoy as you scroll through these photos from Laurie and Matt’s Wakefield Mill engagement photos!! Ohh, how I adore these two!!
And let’s finish off this post with a fave of sunset near the ‘covered bridge in Wakefield’! So much fun chasing sunlight with these two!!
Thank you Laurie, Matt and the staff at the Wakefield Mill!! Counting down for their wedding day next Fall!!
