Our Engagement Photo's

photo by Avenue Photo (Toronto)

Richard and I finally got our engagement photo's taken. On a chilly, but thankfully sunny Sunday morning two weeks ago, we met with our photographer Margaret Diotalevi of Avenue Photo. We get to call her 'our photographer' because Margaret will be the person capturing our wedding day.

So there we were, the two of us who criticize pretty much every snapshot taken of ourselves. It's bad enough alone, but together one of is generally making a weird face, blinking or something to throw the shot off. We were a handful for Margaret.

We were up early to catch the morning sun at Gairloch Gardens - right at the lake in Oakville. The 'not a morning girl' managed to get hair and makeup together for the early sunrise shoot.
The gardens are pretty and fit right up to the shoreline of Lake Ontario. All of the elements are really 'us' - the lake, gardens and the old stone wall around the studio building made the location perfect.

We will have loads of wedding photo's in about a month and a half, but I love having pictures of us in everyday clothes. We were like a young couple half our age, trying to decide what we would wear and getting it all together. I even did a quick change of clothes in the parking lot at the car......... silly kids!
Doing all of this together is a great romantic feed for a relationship. I loved snuggling with Richard and allowing someone to capture our romance.





This photo is such a fairy tale shot - just love it.

The excuse of our upcoming wedding is certainly the best reason to work with a professional photographer. But after looking at all of the pictures I wonder why we waited so long to take professional photo's together. If you are a couple or a family who does not have professional photos yet, take the time and book a session to capture something you'll always treasure.

  2. Love your photos. I too live in Oakville & just wanted you to know that my husband & I have planned a trip to the same beautiful resort that you visited. I wanted somewhere special so when I found your blog I bookmarked the info. We are celebrating 50 years together on June 4th. Congratulations & best wishes on your coming wedding.

    1. Barbara, Congratulations on your 50th anniversary together. You will love the resort - it felt so different being on the island. With water all around you can't help but feel like you really are away. Much different than a resort with just a beach front. If you want other info just email me - glamourbeginsathome@gmail.com.
      Enjoy the time away and do book the romantic dinner on the beach to celebrate.
