Teresa and Jeff are are absolutely lovely couple! In fact, they are more than lovely. The first time I sat down to meet them I instantly felt like I was chatting with old friends. Don’t you just love connections like that? From that moment, I knew that I would enjoy my time with them!
At first, Teresa and Jeff were thinking about taking their wedding photos in the ever-so-popular Distillery District. After changing their minds and picking Liberty Village as their engagement shoot location, they made one last change of plans and decided to take their engagement photos at the Cardinal Gold Club in Newmarket. What’s so special about the Cardinal Golf Club, you ask? It’s where Teresa and Jeff will be tying the knot this November!
Choosing a location for your engagement photos can be difficult, especially in Toronto and the GTA where you have limitless locations available to you. When my clients are unsure of an engagement location, I often suggest breaking it down into three possibilities:
- Choose something totally opposite of what you’ll be doing on your wedding day: If your wedding day photos will be architectural, why not choose a nature backdrop for your engagement photos?
- Choose something that would be impossible to do on your wedding day: If, like most brides, you have limited time for photos on your wedding day, choose a location close to you for wedding day photos but make a mini road trip out of your engagement photos and hit up the locations that require some extra travel time.
- Do a dry run: Choose the same location for your engagement photos that you plan on being in for your wedding photos. A familiar setting may help ease some wedding day jitters!
Teresa and Jeff went with option #2 – they chose the Cardinal Golf Club for their engagement photos because it’s not something they can do on their actual wedding day! Teresa and Jeff are planning a November wedding – although the golf club will still be beautiful in the snowy winter, they wanted to ensure they had photos with the vibrant colours and beautiful foliage, too.
A huge thank you to Teresa and Jeff for choosing me as your Toronto wedding photographer! I can’t tell you how excited I am to be there on your wedding day!
