When Ivona emailed me the day before her engagement session to let me know she had found the perfect location for the shoot, I was stoked. See, sometimes you just happen upon locations serendipitously. Up until that moment, we were all sort of unsure as to where to shoot this session. Both Ivona and Mark live in the Bradford area and I’m all the way down in Toronto so I had no idea what was where up their way… I decided to leave it to them and see what came about. Like I said, serendipity. They were driving around Newmarket the day before the shoot and came across a gorgeous horse farm. When they asked the owner if we could shoot on the property, she was more than happy to let us! Sometimes, it really doesn’t hurt to ask!
Both Ivona and Mark wanted a location with character and an earthy kind of feel. I can’t think of anything better than a beautiful farm with white roofs, barn walls painted blue and horses grazing in the meadows. Oh and hay… lots of hay. Mark definitely wanted hay. This is what I love! Each of the couples that I work with seem to come up with special locations that really reflect who they are and the session just flies by! Fantastic couple + equally fantastic location = one amazing engagement session!
Ivona & Mark: I had a lot of fun with you guys on this shoot! You’re both beautiful people and I can’t wait to document your wedding day in July.
Much Love & Hugs, Jenne.
One of my faves… the backlighting in the doorway of the barn was just heaven.
The blueness of the walls was just unreal! Just a perfect backdrop!
You guys seriously rocked this session!
The lighting inside the barn was equally amazing… Ivona, Mark – you guys picked a gem!
Mark knows how to hold his own too!
