We teamed up with another amazing group of vendors for this photoshoot but this time decided the subject of the shoot would be one of our amazing couples and Amanda and Morgan luckily obliged.
I came across this area in north Caledon known as “the badlands” and kept rolling it around in my head; I knew there was something so unique and also simple about this location. The red cracked earth and the sunken gully create the most striking back drop for this engagement shoot. We used the scene as a springboard and layered on succulents and berries and florals in tobacco tins.
During the planning we also met with Amanda and Morgan and added in some of them, too; we wanted elements of their lives together and so we included red wine, Amanda’s collection of Tiffany boxes (mostly gifts from Morgan), and their mutual love of good food and dining al fresco. They love to go up to the rooftop of their condo building and share a glass of wine or a meal — so we brought this lovely intimate experience to the “desert”.
Amanda and Morgan have been together for over 11 years and are getting married this fall. They know one another’s ebb and flow so well and are so in love. They were complete natural rockstars in front of the camera – natural…but also not afraid to work it a bit too.
Working with the other wonderfully talented and amazing ladies on this project and being able to envision a scene and see it come to life is one are two of the absolute best parts of what we do. Working and having fun with couples like Amanda and Morgan is the best icing on the cake.
