RICHMOND GREEN ENGAGEMENT | stephanie + kalvin
With a few humid and super hots days in the bag, Ontario is definitely in the thick of summer. For this post though, we are throwing back to slightly cooler days with Stephanie and Kalvin’s Richmond Green engagement shoot. They said, “waterfall” and we said, “we’ll be there.” We’re easy to please and they’re lovely people, it’s a great combination! Stephanie and Kalvin did well in picking a place for their engagement shoot, Richmond Green offers a variety of spots that works well as backdrops. The park is huge, so it was easy to make it look like they were the only ones there! As an added bonus, there was a house with brick walls that had ” + = ♥ ” drawn on it already, so they just had to add themselves to complete the equation!
Weddings are a flurry of excitement, and time passes by in a blur, especially for the bride and groom. Engagement sessions, on the other hand, can be likened to a first date between the photographer and the couple. One of the reasons why we highly encourage couples to have an engagement session is because it gives us time to get to know each other personally. We also provide some tips on what to do in front of the camera! Essentially, they are trust building sessions. The more the couple trusts that we’re going to make them look their best, the more comfortable they’re going to be when we’re shooting their wedding.
We should add that engagement sessions are also the perfect time for a bride to take their make-up trial out for a spin! Stephanie got hers done by the talented Fiona Man. We have yet to meet Fiona in person, but boy, do we feel like we’ve been friends with her for a long time.
We’re definitely excited to shoot Stephanie and Kalvin’s wedding in October, but in the meantime have a look at their wonderful Richmond Green engagement photos below!
