I met these two in Owen Sound at Sunset to Photograph them in the location where he proposed.
How did you feel about the engagement session after it was all over?After the engagement session I couldn’t believe how much fun we had considering neither of us like having our photo taken. And Of course couldn’t wait to see our photos.
It was cold!! They asked for a winter session and did not back down. They had this amazing farm which was his family farm and I met them there. This outbuilding was crazy good with the stone and red roof and then the sun came through the clouds and I was singing to the heavens.
These two were awesome with no coats on. We stayed on the property so that if it got to be too much they could definitely go inside. I was dressed and good to go for hours, but they were feeling the frigid 20 below zero cold.
He grew up in the area, so knew all the cool spots for photos. We headed down to Georgian Bay in the wind and stayed by the water for a few minutes before it go unbearable.

What do you remember most about your first date?I remember our first date was sometime in the winter months, I happened to have my parents car for the week so we took advantage.

There were very few people in the theatre, a rip in the screen and the most uncomfortable chairs.
