Sara and Luke's engagement session in Port Stanley was well worth the drive from Toronto, I have to send a shout-out to CAA for making it happen! None of us had ever been to Port Stanley before, and we were all excited to checkout the beaches, quaint little town streets, and waterfront houses during the off-season. It really is a fabulous area, and we were lucky to go in the shoulder season to miss the crowds and have miles of white sand beach to ourselves as the sun was setting! These two were so fun to photograph and explore a new area with, and really I don't think anything can beat sunset photos on a beach by the lake-shore. I can't wait to kick my wedding season off to an amazing start with these two in just a few more weeks!
A quick creative shoot looking at the movement and details that pull a series of photographs together. I've loved working on creative collaboration projects like this one with other vendors and artists over the winter. Continuing to practice shooting in the off season, getting to work with other photographers and learn new shooting styles, and really having the time to dissect my work without having it pile up has really helped me become much more comfortable using my camera as a tool to create the images I see throughout a real wedding day. Despite the business of the wedding season, I hope to keep working on shoots like this to continue growing as a photographer, so that one day, maybe, I'll find my portfolio feeling like that of a true fine art wedding photographer. #workgoals
