Burlington, Ontario is a beautiful city nestled along the edge of Lake Ontario so clearly, it is going to be a hotspot location for engagement photography. With a plentiful amount of lakeshore parks and hip and trendy urban areas, Burlington offers a large assortment of diverse areas that newly engaged couples can have their photos taken at. For Michelle and Ken’s engagement shoot, we decided on two very iconic yet diverse locations in the great city: Spencer Smith Park and the Village Square.
We started the shoot at Spencer Smith Park as the sky over the lake was truly epic at that time of day. Spencer Smith Park is a fantastic place for engagement photos as it offers an incredible view of the lake, beach and Skyway Bridge. It was a brutally damp and chilly day but the adorable couple was gleaming with love and joy the whole shoot. A benefit of the cold conditions was we had the entire park to ourselves and we didn’t have to battle any crowds.
For the second portion of the engagement shoot, Michelle and Ken had a wardrobe change and switched into trendy leather jackets and it complimented the Village Square location perfectly. It became colder during this portion of the shoot but a light, beautiful snowfall started and it made for amazing images! As the daylight started to set, street lights and building lights became a great visual element to their engagement photos. The Village Square is located just up the street from Spencer Smith Park but it felt like a completely different environment which helps with the diversity of their photos. The Village Square has a very charming Victorian-era feel which makes it very visually appealing and unique.
I am so thrilled that Michelle and Ken are in love with the photos and now they a large assortment of beautiful wall art that they can proudly hang in their house. I am honoured I was their engagement photographer.
