We love doing engagement photos. A part of what we love about them is that they allow us to capture people's day to day life so that they are able to look back on them and hopefully relive some memories. For Rosalind & Jeff, they are fortunate enough to live in such a beautiful neighbourhood of Toronto, right beside the historic Distillery District.
We are finally getting around to sharing some photos from this trip. We actually visited Portugal back in the summer of 2015 on an amazing two-week road trip. Most people unfortunately only ever see Lisbon (or Porto), the Algarve and maybe the famous Duoro Valley, since a Portugal trip is often partnered up with some time spent in Spain. But for our trip, we decided to give Portugal a full two weeks and we did not regret it. The eastern edge is so very different than the rest and same with the North! With amazing (and typically cheaply priced) foods, medieval towns, wild horses, vinho verde & port, there is so much that this country has to try, offer and see! We seriously recommend it to anyone and definitely let us know if you have any questions because we are happy to share our experiences. Speaking of sharing, here are some of our photos during the trip. Aside from the Arroh & Bow dress series (search the blog for those), typically we like to treat our vacations like, vacations! So here are just some snaps from the two weeks.
The original plan for this engagement session was to head over to Bryson's cottage but unfortunately with all the rain and flooding this spring, it didn't seem like that plan was going to work out. Fortunately, Ottawa is such a beautiful city with so much lovely and easily accessible nature we were still able to enjoy a lovely evening and sunset along the Ottawa River.
