It couldn’t have been a nicer evening for Jennifer and Chris’s engagement session. It was one of those perfect September days you hope would last the entire year. The breeze just warm enough for a light sweater, the sun hanging lazily in the sky. The evening felt calm and relaxing and suited Jennifer and Chris’s laid back personalities.
Jennifer and Chris are the kind of folks who hold friends and family near and dear to their hearts. Some of their favourite past times include grabbing a drink with friends or going for a stroll with their dogs. Regardless of the activity, if they’re together it’s the pretty much the best.
We started snapping their engagement photos at Rock Bottom Bar and Grill where Jennifer and Chris shared laughs and smiles over a couple brews. We were lucky enough to have the whole upstairs to ourselves for a bit which allowed them the opportunity to cozy up for some lighthearted and sweet moments together.
From there we headed to Willistead Park for a pre-sunset walk along with Daphne their darling bulldog. The three walked together along the paths while the sun slowly set over the top of the trees. As the air began to cool the session took on a more intimate tone, the shady trees and glowing light aiding in the romance of the evening.
Jennifer and Chris, your wedding day is almost here! Speaking with you about your upcoming plans has got us excited to celebrate alongside you, while capturing it all unfold. See you real soon!
