By the end of January I always end up feeling that winter is loooong, it’s grey, dreary, damp, cold. I spend most of my time inside, and if I’m not currently ill, I have been last week or I will be next. Winter is only good for binge watching netflix.
And then, well, then if you’re me, you are reminded of this ‘great idea’ to shoot an engagement session up at Arrowhead Provincial Park in Huntsville, Ontario. I muster up some buried excitement, because, though I dislike the cold, I do love the chance to get outside, meet new people and take pretty pictures.
I started driving up through the Muskokas, and outside the fluffy snow is arranged artfully, like it was painted on the trees just for photography. And it’s breathtaking, truly…and I remembered how much I love Ontario. And maybe, I remembered that I am still a Canadian and that a love of winter is in my bones. By the time I arrived in Huntsville, I was in awe of Mother Nature. She puts on one heck of a show.
So by the time I arrived at Arrowhead Provincial Park, I was so excited for a session in this perfect setting. When I arrived Christine and Ian were a little nervous about a photo session, but a lot excited to be there. He put on her skates and the way she leaned on him – they were partners.
Christine and Ian skated their first date, skated their proposal and skated to celebrate a wedding that is only a few short months away.
Thanks Christine and Ian for having me along.
The charm of winter weddings and engagements is really growing on me. How do you feel about them? Leave me a comment!
