It’s the holidays and what’s better than an engagement session with Distillery District Christmas Market photos! Little did Nick know that on his three month work trip from the UK to Canada, he would meet his soon-to-be wife! He was originally meant to go to the US, but a change of plans meant he was going to Canada instead. It was only a three month trip but Esther and Nick hit it off straight away and became very close very quickly. They went on their first date together at The Distillery District although it was -15C and Nick only had his summer jacket! I totally know what this is like, being from Australia and not knowing how important it is to have a good winter jacket that can withstand the harsh winds in Toronto!
On a trip to Cuba together, Nick surprised Esther with a midnight walk along the beach whilst the moonlight illuminated their walk. Nick asked Esther if they could take a picture of them together. As he turned his phone around, Esther read the words on his hand made case, “Esther Kim will you marry me?”. She said yes of course which then followed with many happy tears! Too adorable!
Nick and Esther are now moving to the UK right after Christmas! With Nick in town in Canada, we went back to The Distillery District for their engagement photos. It’s a lovely time of the year to go to the Distillery with the Christmas Market open and all the pretty lights.The Christmas lights added a touch of romance! Nick and Esther are just too cute together. Of course, Nick had his English cardigan rather than a winter jacket and I love how they used a classic English brolly! :)
