As Sheena and I waited to meet Stephanie and Conor for the first time while setting up some final gear for their engagement session in Liberty Village/Fort York park, we were looking at all the couples around us trying to guess which one would be Stephanie and Conor. More often than not, we meet our couples prior to setting up an engagement session, however, this time was different and were very excited to put some faces to our previous conversations on the phone. After waiting a few minutes, we quickly noticed a stunning blue dress and an equally stunning couple walking hand in hand toward us and we both immediately knew that we had found our couple. Stephanie and Conor were very clear about what they wanted from their engagement pictures and the type of mood and atmosphere they wanted to be created. But, underlying everything, Stephanie and Conor wanted the pictures to be fun and to reflect both their carefree and laidback personalities. We walked through their growing neighbourhood and made stops at locations that Stephanie and Conor had made note of prior to the session. Being close by, we also made a stop at the C.N.E grounds which we basically had all to ourselves! This allowed us to take some pictures that wouldn't be possible on a busy day and we had some additional time to seek out other unique nooks and vintage buildings on the grounds before ending our session at the Brazen Head Irish Pub - a the place where Stephanie and Conor met for the very first time. We had a wonderful time photographing and getting to know Stephanie and Conor as we captured this important time in their lives. Wish wish you only the best in life and thanks for having us!
