I loved meeting and photographing Denise and Gerald. As you might guess from looking at how cute and comfortable they are together, they are indeed high school sweethearts; and still have that innocent, puppy love that makes us ‘awww’ and drool. Denise and Gerald wanted their engagement shoot to reflect the way they are everyday, so true to their laid back personalities, they ‘dressed up’ in shorts and summer dresses and went for a scenic walk around a location I had scoped out earlier – the Oakville Marina. We had so much fun getting these lovebirds to pose for us. As it turns out, the marina was where they had come after their second date on a cold winter night many many years ago. What a coincidence! We then headed to a beautiful farm in the middle of the city which produced some really amazing photo ops (how can you go wrong with a dingy abandoned barn!).
I cannot wait to photograph them and their wonderful families later this year. Love you guys and thank you for being you! – Taha
