Leanne and Joshua have known each other since they were little. Having grown up in the same neighbourhood, they went to the same school. Leanne grew up with a love for horses and rode almost every week. Recently, Joshua and Leanne moved to Calgary for work but flew back to Toronto during the holidays to be with family. Since they were only in town for a few days, we had limited time to shoot their winter engagement session. But lucky for us, we had the perfect snow day with lots of beautiful fresh white snow! Leanne went back the stables she usually rides at and we were blessed with two gorgeous white horses, Ronan and Juno!
The combination of the beautiful fresh white snow, the magical forest, the stunning pair of white horses and such a gorgeous couple, made it such a dream shoot! Both Ronan and Juno were amazing to work with and they were so photogenic! They did everything I could have asked for and I didn’t want to stop photographing them! I love how Leanne paired a cozy white sweater with her long dress and kept warm while looking fab for the shoot! Such a good idea!
For the rest of the shoot, Leanne and Joshua changed into a more casual outfit for some cozy intimate photos. I love how colourful The Hudson’s Bay blanket looked on this dreary cold day. It came out so nicely! Both Joshua and Leanne color coordinated their accessories so perfectly. It was so so cute! This has to be one of my favourite engagement sessions for 2016 and such a great way to end the year.
