Engagement photography is so much fun. No matter how many different sessions we do, we love every single photo shoot. Each couple brings such a different dynamic – and influencing our creative process in a different way. On top of that, the weather, time of day and chance all play a part in the locations we end up using for a session.
Alona & Howie had the idea to do their engagement pictures in downtown Toronto, where they’ve spent a lot of the time since they started dating. We thought paying homage to Alona’s Russian background would be cool by doing a portion of the shoot in Pravda – a really cool Russian themed bar just across from the Flat Iron building.
From there we cruised down Colborne Street, ending up at BCE Place for some indoor shots.
Isn’t the light in BCE Place just awesome??! Amazing perspectives too.
As we walked back to the car we had some fun as the sunlight was at it’s best. Next we scooted over to Cabbagetown to wrap up the shoot in Howie’s old stomping ground. He even showed me the antique store his family owns where he worked as a kid – we walked in and the phone rang and she’s like “Howie, get that would you? Haha. Mum’s are the best.
I can’t wait for Alona & Howie’s wedding in June at Atlantis! It’s going to be gorgeous.
