Cambridge, Ontario Engagement session

On Canada Day, I met up with Laura and Shawn at Riverside Park in Cambridge to photograph their engagement session. I was extra excited for this shoot because I've never done a fair or carnival-esque shoot before and I had always dreamed of doing something this fun! There must've been at least 20 000 people around us, and the air was full of noise and energy. Tons of families, couples, and friends were at the Canada Day celebration enjoying our Country's birthday festivities.

I've never photographed amongst SO many people before. It took a little time for us all to get comfortable and wrap our heads around the fact that Laura and Shawn were probably completely on display in front of so many people. I shot with a telephoto lens too, which I thought was going to make me stand out like a sore thumb, but after a while, a strange thing happened: I started to feel invisible! There was just something about it... I felt like the 3 of us were all disappearing in the crowd.

Laura and Shawn are SUCH an adorable couple. They love each other so much and it wasn't hard to catch some really great moments of them just having fun and enjoying the fair. I can't wait for their wedding in October, Laura and Shawn are such a stunning couple and I know they will both be a dream on their big day!
