Marissa and Scott’s relationship started a little ago in the Air Cadets when they were teenagers. Lucky for them, they reconnected while Marissa was in university and Scott was working in a nearby city. They started to date for a few years until Scott moved to Sault Ste Marie for work and they had to overcome the struggles of long distance! Marissa ended up following Scott to this beautiful city to do her residency. After 8 years, Scott proposed on a trip in Europe. He recalls that he wasn’t feeling well the entire trip but knew that there could be nothing more beautiful that proposing off the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. Just the perfect place for a memorable (and very scenic) proposal!
I love how Marissa and Scott have now come to love Sault Ste Marie and decided to stay there! It fits their good natured, easy going, outdoor personalities so well. I flew up to Sault Ste Marie and spent a little more than a couple of hours with them driving around Northern Ontario and they are the most loveliest people. You can tell how much they love it there especially that they are there together :)
Despite the hundreds of bug bites I got that day (and am still paying for it!), Sault Ste Marie is such a beautiful place for an engagement session! Its tall trees, vast landscape and rich untouched nature was such a dream to photograph in! To top it all of, I had the most sweetest couple who you can’t stop wanting to click the shutter to capture all their cuteness! They naturally light up when around each other. I asked Scott to describe their relationship in three words and he said “too darn cute”. I couldn’t have said it any better myself. I had way too much fun with this engagement session. I sooooo can’t wait for their wedding day!
