Leo & Maria’s Stoney Creek Engagement Photography

This week Charlotte and I are heading off to NYC for the first time! I’ve been living in Toronto for 8 years now, and I can’t believe I haven’t been to the Big Apple yet! We’re both looking forward to seeing a few of the sights – for me I’ve always wanted to see The Guggenheim. Before we fly out (on Porter – our favourite!) I’m finishing up a couple more albums, meeting with 2 potential clients and of course, trying to get one more blog post done 🙂

Leo and Maria booked us to photograph their gorgeous wedding next Summer, and when we talked about where we might do their engagement shoot they were both excited to shoot around their new house in Stoney Creek. I’ve put together a little video slide show of my favourite shots for them and I wanted to also feature some of them as images on the blog too.

First off, here’s the video if you’ve got a few minutes, if not, skip ahead and check out the photos below. Cheers.

Fall engagement photos always give an awesome range of colours, moods and lighting options in the pictures… I love having shots like these above where the light feels like the middle of Summer, then be able to jump right into more moody and monochromatic images like these shots below.

Leo & Maria did really well to find a local vineyard willing to let us use their property to do the engagement pictures… Some of you readers may already know the spot…. Puddicombe Estate Farms & Winery.

We all loved this little orchard. Super cute right?

As we wrapped up the shoot we grabbed this romantic photo of the two of them enjoying one last cuddle.

Can’t wait to photograph their wedding next year in Toronto & Vaughan… Gonna be awesome!!!
