Cherry Beach engagement photos were a very popular request this year.  The quaint little beach at the end of Cherry Rd. isn’t as much of a well-kept secret as I thought.  Everyone seems to want to be at Cherry Beach for their pictures.  Maybe it’s because of the super-sweet little lifeguard station or because of the beautiful open waters that make you forget there’s a city of 2.5 million right behind you.  Maybe it’s because of the tall grass and weeping willow trees.  Or maybe because there’s a food truck nearby that makes really, really great poutine!

One of the things I adore about these Cherry Beach photos is that the couple opted to wear bright colours.  Bold colours, especially primary colours, always steal the show in engagement photos… in a great way!  They bring the focus back to the couple, regardless of what the background may be.  I’m totally digging the yellow and red outfits and I’m a little jealous that I don’t look nearly as stunning in yellow as Ashleigh does.  I can’t wait to see her all done up on her wedding day!!

When I was younger, there was a song called Cherry Rd. by Martina Sorbara.  Most of you may know her as Dragonette now, but before the electric pop days, Martina was an amazing singer-songerwriter and Cherry Rd. was one of my faves.  Not having grown up in Toronto, I had no idea what Cherry Rd. looked like or what the beach at the end of Cherry Rd. looked like.  I knew the sand was coarse and the water the cold but even such a beautiful song could not do Cherry Beach justice.  It’s just a beautiful place.

The skies began to darken and the fluffiest clouds began to descend on the city.  It was only a matter of time before the raindrops made an appearance, but there’s always time for a few more photos, no?  The beautiful band on hot pink along the horizon was too perfect not to capture in an image.
