Experimental Farm E-Session (Ottawa Engagement Photographers)
Last week I photographed James and Shawna’s engagement photos. Both grew up in the country and both are very down-to-earth, so they wanted a rustic style engagement session. Now, I am a huge fan of anything remotely rustic (barns, fields, farm posts, hay bales) and so I was really excited to photograph their engagement session at the Experimental farm. We went the week before to scout out the locations and found a whole pile of amazing spots, so all three of us were excited to do the shoot. On the day of the shoot, the weather ended up being beautiful: sunshine and not too hot. It was perfect.
James and Shawna wanted to make sure that they had some photos taken in front of the corn fields, since corn plays a special part in bringing these two together. You see, James used to be a truck driver who brought corn to the ethanol plant four times a day, which is where Shawna worked. They would talk to each other each time he delivered a load of corn and finally after three months of talking to each other, James finally gathered enough courage to ask Shawna out on a date. And if memory serves me correct, on one of their earlier dates, when they were strolling amongst the corn, they had their first kiss. How cute is that?!?!
I am looking forward to photographing their rustic wedding at Strathmere this October.
