Engagement photos are always so much fun, and this Ottawa fall engagement session was no exception! Mark and Tory are just the sweetest. I met Mark and Tory last winter when we took some photos together. So I was thrilled to learn that Mark proposed over the summer. And even more excited when they asked to do an engagement session!

The fall is such a gorgeous time of year around the city. I can’t even count the number of times I want to pull over to the side of the road and take photos. It seriously happens constantly. So for their Ottawa fall engagement session, I wanted to take advantage of the fall colours. I suggested that we drive around the south end of the city and literally stop at random spots along the side of the road. I knew it sounded a little crazy. And I wasn’t entirely sure how they would feel about it. But they were on board and we had a great time hanging out.

I had a few spots in mind that I had previously driven past and wanted to stop at, so we decided that we would just get in the car and drive. We’d drive until we came across a pretty field, or an old building, and then pull over and take some photos. It was simple, and so fun.

I love this session. Not just because Mark and Tory have great chemistry and were seriously so easy to photograph. But also because it shows that you can find beauty anywhere… on the side of the road and at abandoned buildings. Think outside the box, get a little creative and find beauty in the ordinary; your backyard, a random field you drive by every day, or the side of a building.

Thanks for trusting me, Mark and Tory. It was so fun hanging out with you two again.

Thank you so much Carley! The pictures turned out beautiful and I am so glad you suggested stopping where we did. People who have seen the pictures find it hard to believe the places we went to for those georgeous fall colours!
We are so pleased with how the photos turned out. You made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and gave us so many helpful pointers to capture the true happiness between us!

Thank you so much, Tory! It was so much fun hanging out with you two (even on the side of the road, hah)! It was a perfect fall day – you guys were great. So glad you two are happy with the photos. Chat soon, xo!
