"I wasn't going to go on that first date with Josh, but my mom told me Josh would be different, and to go. Now, 3 years later, we're engaged!"

Ontario in the fall: glorious fall leaves putting on their yearly spectacle, warm sun complimenting the crisp in the air, shorter days and earlier nights... Love is in the air.

Just under a 3 hour drive from Toronto and an hour from the American border, Rock Glen Falls in Arkona, Ontario is the idyllic escape to Canadian nature without the extensive trip up North. Trickling falls going into a winding river, with trails down to the river and the view above, Rock Glen Conservation Area has it all.

Selena and Josh chose Rock Glen for their engagement session because they knew just how beautiful it would be in the fall, and the beauty of nature would be the perfect backdrop for their love.

Selena and Josh are a dream couple for any photographer. They reached out after getting recently engaged at a cottage, with family and friends there to celebrate with them. They knew what they wanted, and they knew they wanted me as their photographer (greatest compliment ever, by the way). Together, we knew we wanted to focus on their love for each other, with lots of kissing, hugging, and genuine In Love smiles. I may be biased, but I have to say I think we blew the expectations out of the water!

When I'm planning sessions with my couples, I always like to get to know you and your partner a little bit before we meet up for the session. This way I can make sure you're both comfortable, and we can really connect for that hour. Trust me, it makes a difference in your photos!

One of the questions I like to ask is: "What Do You Love Most About Each Other?"

Selena and Josh's answers are simply too sweet not to share

Josh: I love her amazing personality and how thoughtful she is. She always goes above and beyond in everything she does for anyone, and I love that about her

Selena: I love how Josh always makes me laugh, and he always takes his time to make sure I'm happy

Meant to be, destined, star-crossed lovers... whichever term you may choose to describe your dream love and partner, it is without a doubt true for Selena and Josh. Their wedding next August is bound to be just as beautiful and romantic as their fall engagement session, and I for-one cannot wait to celebrate the two of them and their deep love for each other.

Let's chat to plan your perfect engagement!
