Katie + Jeff’s Gorgeous Beach E-Session – Wasaga Beach Photography – Toronto Wedding Photographer
A couple of weeks back, I was able to spend some time in Wasaga Beach with Katie and Jeff for their engagement session. What I love about these sessions is that it really helps me to get to know my wedding couples and it helps them to get comfortable with me and my style of shooting. I call it a trial run for the wedding day!
I met up with Katie and Jeff at Katie’s parents place so we could get some shots with their new puppy Halle. Halle ended up posing for only a couple of shots, but the main thing is we got a few shots with all of them together! Having fur family members included in engagement shoots is so much fun and I so glad we were able to get a few of them all together.
Katie and Jeff have a long love relationship with the beach. Both Katie and Jeff grew up on the beaches of Wasaga and Katie’s grandparents home backed right onto the beach (and we were able to get a few pics there!). They also purposely bought a house together close to the beach! Naturally, they chose the beach as the spot for their engagement session. I was so excited when they told me, because any session that I can be shooting barefoot is perfection!
When I emailed them asking if they could share their love story with me so I could share here on the blog, I got a response from both of them! I love dreading the story from two different perspectives. Rather than combine them, I’m sharing them both here!
After being with Katie for a short while I realized this amazing person was the girl I wanted to marry and spend my life with. One of our favourite spots to spend time together is at the beach. I decided that I was going to propose to Katie on the beach during our upcoming vacation which we take every winter. We went for a sunset walk on the beach and I was a nervous wreck but was finally able to get down on one knee and ask my best friend to marry me.
I look forward to our wedding day and to celebrate our relationship with our friends and family. The thing I look forward to the most is standing at the alter and seeing her for the first time walk down the aisle. At that moment I’ll be the happiest and most grateful guy in the world watching the love of my life walk down to aisle and to become her husband.
