Aya + Kyle’s Engagement Shoot At The Beaches

Aya + Kyle

Aya and Kyle live in New York City, and when they emailed me back in early October to set up an engagement session in Toronto near the end of November the first thought that popped into my head was: “I sure hope I can convince them to shoot outside.” I mean, it’s the end of November and the end of autumn — chilly and windy, the trees were pretty bare, and since they don’t live in Toronto I had one morning to work with, plus a rain date (turned out, it rained that day). But I still wanted to shoot outside because it always looks better, in my opinion.

I sent along some suggestions with links to photos that I’d taken in those places, and they decided on Ashbridges Bay Park and the eastern beaches. (Real estate agents and most of the locals call the area “The Beaches”, but you know what? We have beaches in the West End, too. Anyway…) Then I crossed my fingers.

You’ll see in the photos that we got really lucky — not only did the sun shine from the hours of 9-11 that Friday morning, the wind didn’t pick up by the lake until the end of our session. The set is best viewed as a full-screen slideshow,  or just sit back and watch the set autoplay at the bottom of the post. Clicking on the slideshow will take you to the thumbnails in Flickr.
