As I was wrapping up the fall shooting season, my last session was with these two lovebirds at Bluffers park. I’ve lived in the city for over 7 years now and this is the first time I’ve had the chance to capture Scarborough Bluffs engagement photos. Why did I wait so long to go there? It’s a magical, beautiful and completely serene location. I’m not one for heights and truthfully, the bottom of the bluffs is the more beautiful location so that’s what we opted for for this session.
(PRO TIP: If you want to use the top of the bluffs, schedule a sunrise engagement session. You’re more likely to get a super sweet sunrise captured instead of a sunset, and it will make for prettier images.)
With camera around my neck, we hopped over rather large puddles, balanced on a log and waddled through the soft sand until we got to the very bottom of the Bluffs… and that’s when I realized there was an easier way to get there. Oh well. The sun was peeking over the western edge of the bluffs creating a beautiful golden glow that was begging to be captured.
As we walk along the water, I couldn’t help be grateful that this was indeed a lake and not an ocean and that an incoming tide wouldn’t be an issue. I’ll be the first to admit that my mind comes up with some pretty crazy ideas at times and I can be fairly vocal about them. At least it gets my clients laughing – a good laugh always adds a serenity to an engagement session.
When your couple is as fun and relaxed as these two and when you’re in a beautiful location like Bluffers park, you can’t help but take our your trusty prism and create some fun and funky artistic images.
As the sun set and the happy couple stole a few more smooches, I was so sad that the session was over and that my 2014 fall season was wrapping up. Lucky for me, I get to post some awesome photos AND I get the privilege of working with these two again this summer. I sure do love my job!
