Seriously, winter sessions are quickly becoming some of my favourites *Insert heart eye Emoji here*! Sometimes rescheduling the session is definitely necessary and turns out for the best, such as in Emily & Marco’s case. We waited out hoping for snow but a warmer day and we certainly got just that. I’m calling this one the Perfect Sunset Engagement because that’s exactly what it was. The day leading up to the session I had my fingers crossed hoping things would remain perfect and that we would get a gorgeous sunset like the night before and lo and behold the skies held out and gave us the most stunning light. Emily & Marco met me at the Arboretum and we opted to walk around until I saw something that inspired me and as we chatted about wedding planning, booking the church, timeline etc etc I saw it. I saw the perfect sunlight shining through some trees piercing through an old pine tree with droopy branches and I knew that’s where we had to be. Emily & Marco were a little shy at first, not quite sure what to do but it didn’t take them long to get into the groove of things. They cuddled and kissed and laughed so much, I even laughed the whole time with them! Let’s be honest though, it isn’t all that hard to make me laugh though :P. After I fell, basically in slow motion in knee high snow, and playing with a prism we made our way back to the upper part of the Arboretum. I brought them along a path and noticed the sun being beautiful through some more trees and almost fresh snow so I brought us off trail and told them to walk ahead as the snow didn’t seem too deep… I was wrong. They tried walking hand in hand only to sink way into the snow making walking photos more like waddling trying not to fall photos so I thought it was a good time to just sit on a blanket and cuddle (they cuddle, not me). I waddled through the snow in my snow pants and rolled around a bit creating a flat compacted area for them to sit and not sink, Hurrah for snow pants (note that at my last session I forgot to wear them and was hip deep in snow in just leggings and sweatpants, fun)! After playing around a little bit more in the area I suggested doing a piggy back shot to which Marco quickly replied; ” I don’t think Emily can hold me up!”. We both just looked at him and smiled, what a silly guy, obviously I meant him giving Emily a piggy back. After a few more jokes I decided we should end the session at the greenhouses because I knew the sun would be at the perfect level in the sky. We joked around a lot more, I made them dance a little bit (you guys remember your homework for the wedding right?) and we even took some shots with Emily’s green toque + mittens which are a sign of good luck if I remember correctly according to Marco’s mom. It was definitely a perfect way to end a Perfect Sunset Engagement. xox
