Surprise Engagement | Guelph, Ontario

I have known Emily and Shane for a little while now, having done a couples shoot with them before. They’re such fun to work with (talk about photogenic) and it’s been such a pleasure to document their journey together.

Originally, we had all planned to hike up to the waterfall Dundas Peak. But a week before the shoot the weather had gone sour, so we rescheduled to somewhere local and weather-safe.

When Shane called me a day to tell me that there was something ‘extra special’ about to happen, I knew we had to make it special. I contacted Jess (my stylist babe @paintedwhitestudio) and ordered our adorable teepee be set up by the cliff rock in Guelph! We decorated it with some signature lights from Michaels, popped in some vintage rugs, pillows and a bottle of champagne and boom! An elegant yet adorable snuggle cove for Emily and Shane’s day by the ocean.

Emily was totally surprised as Shane asked her to face away from him. I was able to capture the intimate moment perfectly. The two were so inspiringly full of joy. Emily was so stunning in her Clara Lifestyle dress and Lack of Colour Australia Hat, my job felt almost too easy.

I look forward to documenting these babe’s life in the future and for all of their beautiful moments ahead!
