I’ve been wanting to take engagement photos on a boat for a while now. So you can imagine how excited I was when Jessica said “let’s do it!”. It worked out perfectly as Jessica and John recently became members of the National Yacht club, literally just steps from their Toronto apartment. On the boat Jessica commented how perfect the boat idea was; “This is us; water, a boat, close to home…” It’s so important to me when taking engagement photos that we are not trying to recreate something. I love finding points or elements that speak about who my couples are. And… Staying fresh and creative when I work is essential for me. And I’m going say it… ” I am so tired of shooting engagements at the Distillery!” I’m sorry. Agreed, it is one of MY favourite places downtown, but I’m not going to lie, I’m a little tired of it. This could change obviously.

      Right now on my list of places I would like to shoot are:

      • A cozy couples intimate session at home… white sheets, lots of natural light, coffee, a kitty…
      • Travelling theme with an RV
      • Anywhere in Paris or Italy
      • An underwater couples session
      • With bicycles…
      • Winter session with snow…
      • Anywhere in Paris or Italy (did I already say that?)

      That’s just off the top of my head. If you are having trouble figuring out where/what you would like to do for yours, we can brainstorm and figure it out together.

      Here are some of my other favourite spots in the Toronto area:
