They met 10 years ago, after Takako handed her resume to Jerriet at a local bubble-tea shop. As they worked together, they became good friends and it turned into something more. Theyâ€™ve now been together for over 8 years!! They enjoy doing the most simplest of things together â€“ having meals together, watching movies together, and most of all playing with their son! I love how intimate they are with one another and simply carefree and fun loving. You can just tell that they are there for each other and will do anything for the other person.
Whilst Takako is a flight attendant with Air Canada, Jerriet enjoys taking flying lessons. They are soon getting married and it only makes sense that they are having a flight themed wedding! I wanted to capture their carefree and loving nature of their relationship in the open fields. I think flying represents a sense of openness, freedom and adventure which I wanted to also be represented here in this engagement session. Open fields are so gorgeous to capture in the summertime when the grass is long, the flowers have fully blossomed and there is such warmth to it. Flying can also represent getting up and going for your dreams. It is also why a hazy summertime engagement session made so much sense with Takako and Jerriet as it is so soft, almost like they are living in a beautiful dream. Isnâ€™t that what love feels like, like youâ€™re living in a beautiful dream? I sure think so. Especially when I see the way Takako and Jerriet look at one another with such joy, I just think that this is exactly what dreams are made of. 🙂
This was such a fun and pretty engagement photo session under the summer sun. As you can see, sunsets are such a great time for beautiful romantic and whimsical photos! Takako and Jerriet looked adoringly cute in the old barn. Pickering has some amazing outdoor locations for engagement shoots!
