Kevin's Proposal to Carrie
 

For everything "wedding", I've been chatting with Carrie by phone and email for months. So what to think, when - out of the blue - Kevin emails me before the engagement photos, asking if it would be okay for him to propose properly to Carrie during our shoot... My response, literally, was "Um... That would be amazing!" (with about seven more exclamation marks). Marriage proposal photos - so romantic and actually for real - I do! I mean, yes please! Carrie and Kevin fell in love over a dine and dash in Paris. Yes, you heard me right... They dined, and then they dashed. Don't judge them - Carrie says when Kevin was willing to go along with her wild and hair-brained schemes while traveling together, she knew he was the one for her. Plus, the were in Paris for goodness' sake. It was just the beginning of their adventures.

But wait - how were there engagement photos, when there had been no proposal? Well Kevin and Carrie have known for a long time that they were meant to be. They were so excited to start their lives together that they just started planning the party. It was realized along the way that there was no ring yet... Until the day of the engagement shoot.

Here is a pair of folks who are genuinely in love; the gratitude each expressed for the other just touched my heart. During the photos they took almost no instruction, they just looked at each other and spoke from the heart. Sometimes it seemed as if I wasn't there at all... Except when Carrie held her left hand up to me and screamed, "My Ring!"

Carrie and Kevin have had many more adventures in the years since Paris, including adopting wee Wendy into their lives - basically the cutest miniature dachshund you'll ever meet. We finished off the shoot with a little Wendy-time, just to make sure she was in on the action and family love...

Congratulations, you amazing people. I couldn't be more honoured to share these memories with you both!

Alison & Allia's Brunch Engagement Photos - L'Ouvrier Kitchen Bar

This is the way to do it! Leisurely brunch engagement photos, champagne, and a walk to stretch the legs... We begin at L'Ouvrier Kitchen Bar. Allia & Alison are too awesome to describe. Funny, artistic and completely in love, rooms light up when these two women enter... (See what I did? I tried to describe them anyway.) They suggested we meet at L'Ouvrier Kitchen Bar, a stylish yet laid back joint near Bathurst and Dundas. Brunch arrived with an entire french press pot of coffee. Talking, and laughing, it was easy to see why these two are such a sublime match. Champagne followed a delicious breakfast (I told you this is the way to do it!), and then we headed out into the city.

Alison graduated from University of Toronto, so it only made sense to explore the beautiful Victoria College campus. In fall coats, the ladies kept each other warm, laughing, running, even flying. Playing among the gothic stone and ivy-covered walls, we were filled with energy - adventure - even magic.
