Over nine years ago, Aileen and Jordan met at a roommate’s birthday party. Jordan has come to love Aileen’s sense of humor and how she understands him, and Aileen loves Jordan’s consistent love and support. They love to walk through food markets and coming home to cook together. Over the years, they have come to be thankful that no matter what happens in life, they will still have each other. On their 100th month anniversary, Jordan popped the question in their condo.
It was Aileen and Jordan’s dream to have their photos taken at the scenic cliffs of Tobermory. I had never been to Tobermory myself but has seen lots of gorgeous pictures online. It’s been on my list of things to do for a long long time! We were lucky to have one weekend off in October and despite it being freezing cold (literally, it was snowing!) and windy, we hiked over together to Indian Head Cove at Bruce Peninsula Park and it was truly stunning!
It turns out that Aileen had ordered a special dress for the shoot but because of the recent Canada Post strike, the shipment was delayed and it didn’t arrive on time! But she found this beautiful green velvet dress which made her look very Elsa-like from the Disney animated movie, Frozen (before she succumbs to her powerful powers and morphs into a sparkly crystal blue princess).
Aileen and Jordan were just incredible to work with. Despite the cold and wet conditions, they braved the rocky surfaces for all these shots. There were so many beautiful photographs from this shoot, it was so hard to choose my favourites! It was SO worth the four and a half hour drive out here and the windy cold weather for this engagement session.
