Dave & Jasmine’s Kingston Engagement Session

For regular readers of our blog, I may sound a little like a scratched record. I always feel so blessed to have such sweet, cool, friendly couples hire us as their wedding photographers! This was the case for us recently when Dave & Jasmine, a fun loving couple from Kingston asked us to become their wedding photographers.

Originally we talked about doing their engagement pictures while they were in Toronto for a weekend visit, but as the weather cooled and time began to run out, Charlotte and I offered to drive out to Kingston to do their session. I think Dave was relieved because he is a busy eye surgeon at the hospital in town.

The day was just perfect… scattered clouds, mild temperatures, beautiful Fall colours and a refreshing lake breeze.

We began the session down by the water, with Dave surprising both us and Jasmine by bringing his guitar and playing to her! What a romantic guy 🙂




I love this shot Charlotte captured below. You can really feel the emotion and love these two have for one another…


After we were done shooting by the water (and I think were were all getting slightly chilly), we walked up into Kingston’s main hub and took pictures by some really cool old stone walls and in various back alleys.


I got this next shot by climbing a tree – something I’m becoming known for!


We had a short break, then decided we still wanted to get some shots overlooking Kingston, so Dave & Jasmine suggested we drive up to Fort Henry. Charlotte and I were both so glad we did. There’s some amazing views over the water from up there! Charlotte nailed this dramatic photo by shooting across the hillside.


There’s a photo that a lot of people comment on from David and Christina’s engagement photo shoot at the Brickworks earlier this year… it’s a picture where they were lying in the grass together and I shot it by holding the camera above my head with a very wide lens. Well Dave & Jasmine asked if we could do a similar photo for them, so we found the perfect patch of long, puffy grass and after they got all snuggled up together we made this images.


As the shoot was coming to an end, we decided to mix it up a bit and have some fun with an old school shot. We’re so glad we made the drive to Kingston for their engagement shoot. Not only because it holds a place in Jasmine and Dave’s heart but because we got to experience the beauty and charm of the town!


We wrapped the shoot and headed out for dinner together at the restaurant where Jasmine and Dave had their first date… it’s a really cool little joint with tin tiles on the ceiling, exposed brick walls and comfy lounge seating… and the food was second to none!

Thanks for a great day guys – it was fun getting to know you both a little more… can’t wait to photograph your wedding next year!
