I love relaxed engagement sessions, especially ones by the water. I always prefer to include nature in my shoots than urban environments. Water, sand, trees, flowers, and fields are in my opinion so much more gorgeous than human-made structures and make beautiful backdrops for portraits. Although Cherry Beach is located so close to downtown Toronto, you can escape to serenity. With Stephanie and Elliott’s engagement session we were lucky to be there when no one else was, giving us the place to ourselves. Because it was calm and quiet, it was the ideal setting for couples to relax in front of my lens and feel like themselves. Stephanie and Elliott naturally warmed up and I am gushing at how cute they are together! Cherry Beach is a pretty location because it has water, sand and trees and is even close to see the skyline of Toronto at the Docks. But what makes beautiful portraits is gorgeous light and couples who just have a good time together.
