A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting engagement photos of an old family friend. She and I have known each other for over 10 years, and her family and mine used to share several holiday celebrations together. She e-mailed me months ago, inquiring about engagement photography, and I was only too happy to say yes. We planned for a time closer to fall, because that’s when her wedding is planned for next year. Capturing the love and joy between these two lovebirds was easy – they are laid-back, hilarious people to be around. My friend chose the Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm for the backdrop, because of all the greenery and the variety of poses that were available. This location is right in the heart of Ottawa, and it provides a great scene for engagement photos at almost any time of year! We finished off the evening taking a stroll down Preston street. Take a look at the images we shot below!
