Those shoes, though! When I first met Alana & Rachel at Starbuck's to chat about their upcoming wedding at (my favourite) St.Mary's Golf & Country Club, I knew immediately we'd be a stellar team! They're so laid back and comfortable with each other, and up for anything to get great pics, as their engagement shoot on campus (where they met) proved instantly!
We started at Medway Hall, their official stomping ground, and I let Alana & Rachel tour me around – a different approach from how I usually shoot engagement sessions! I know the campus, but wanted the two of them to show me their favourite places, spots they found interesting, and take me to places that have some meaning for them (and I stopped them 1000 times on the way because of the way the light was falling or an amazing wall...you know how it goes).
Seriously, aren't they the cutest?
I should also mention, they're avid rock climbers...so scaling this building to get into these positions took them like, 0.2 seconds.
Which is also just the beginning!
Originally, Rachel and Alana's engagement shoot at UWO was supposed to be a "half" session, meaning roughly an hour or so. But, as you can tell, things were going way too well and I was having too much fun with them to stop shooting, so we just kept rolling! The weather, the lighting, the backdrops and most importantly – Alana & Rachel – were all too perfect! Their wedding at St.Mary's Golf & Country Club was supposed to be in just a few weeks, but is now rebooked into May 2021 as a result of the craziness in the world right now...but that's just one more year we get to look forward to working together again! All the best to the two of you...see you in 12 months! xoxo Shawn
