I have been very fortunate to work with some fantastic couples in the last few years, and Robyn and Josh were no exception. I met them for their engagement session at a family property in Bathurst, where the wedding is actually going to be taking place. It’s right on the water, with lots of sandy beach – and seriously it couldn’t have been more perfect (except for the snow and ice still around, haha). They even brought their dog alone for a few shots. The goal was to just be fun and natural, and we definitely achieved that! These two were seriously completely relaxed in front of the camera – it was like I wasn’t even there – and that truthfully makes for the best photos!
After the beach we hit the road and found a nice snowy trail with those “twiggy” trees I love so much. A little snowball action and some crazy antics ensued, resulting in some seriously great moments. The only thing I asked them to do that didn’t just “happen” was a dip… and they nailed it first try.
I seriously love how this next photo turned out…. it’s so hard to get jumping shots just perfect, but somehow it happened. One of my favourite shots of the day for sure!
Robyn and Josh met back in high school, but didn’t actually start dating until many years later. They wanted to make a little visit to their former school for a few shots, and it was a very different and cool background for engagement photos!!
This final location was a fluke…. right in Bathurst, by an abandoned factory I believe? And I noticed it on our way to the school. So on the way back, I just knew we had to stop. I guess photographers look at these types of places differently than most people…. I’m sure it gets looked at as an eyesore to many, but I absolutely needed to get a few photos there…. and we definitely got a few cars honking when we were there, haha!
Thanks for being so awesome Robyn and Josh – I can’t wait for your beach wedding this summer! ♥
