September 2013 was where it all began for them. Serena & Alex met during their first undergrad year at the University of Ottawa. In Serena’s words, “they found chemistry in chemistry” (seriously, HOW CUTE is that)! Fast forward to the present; they now have been together for almost six years, have finished/are finishing up graduate and professional degrees, and are now just a couple of months away from their wedding.
It was such a joy to finally get to meet Serena and Alex in person for their engagement session. The moment we read their first email we could tell that these two had such a deep and passionate love for each other. As we got to know them throughout the session, it was obvious that their love wasn’t just present in the words they had written, but also in the way they carried themselves and how they treated each other with such admiration, kindness, and respect. Serena said, “we count our lucky stars that we found eternal love with one another at such a young age.”
(Honestly, every email or text I’ve received from Serena is filled with emotion and so much of her beautiful soul, it’s so hard not to love her and see love through her eyes.)
Serena and Alex, we have loved every moment getting to know you two! We are so happy that you two have found a true partner in each other. We cannot wait for your wedding, but more importantly, we can’t wait for you to be married. To spend the rest of your lives together. To continue to make memories and share your beautiful hearts with the family you’ll create in the future.

It’s that time of year we get to reflect on all the amazing things that have happened in the past year. Typically, when we do our “Best of” year round-up, Weddings & Engagements get put into one post. However, we did 16 engagement sessions in 2019 so we thought they deserved their own post! Engagement sessions are one of our favourites to photograph because it is such a joyous season of our couples lives. From Guelph to Cambridge to Woodstock to Toronto and more, in every season of the year, here are some of our favourites from all of our 2019 engagements!

Meet Sam & Jordan!
Sam is the owner of Catalyst & Co. She’s a hardworking and successful boss babe with an aesthetic to make you swoon! The creative style and talent she puts into her business is also shown in her lifestyle – simply darling and beautiful.
Jordan is a social media specialist and is so good at what he does. From his personality alone we know he’s charming, witty, and lots of fun – definite things to captivate an audience, wouldn’t you say?
Sam & Jordan have known each other for twelve years. TWELVE! They love to explore new towns, both near and far, so it was SO fitting when Jordan popped the question during one of their trips to Deep Cove (North Vancouver, BC).
We had such a great time with them during their engagement session. They both love being near the water so we all decided that Scarborough Bluffs would be a great spot for them! They were constantly making each other laugh, which was so adorable! I loved watching Jordan watch Sam – making sure she was okay, cheering her on, making her laugh…they make quite the team both in front of the camera and in life in general.
Sam says, “we have evolved into people we’re proud of, and we would like to look back and know this was just the beginning.” Twelve years is one amazing adventure they’ve been on, and now they’re preparing for their biggest and best one yet! We are soooo excited to be celebrating their new adventure next June!!
