"Seduction for the first time…"
These are the words that came out of Jaclyn’s mouth when I told her I’d publish the story of how she and Eric met on my blog. When I first met Jaclyn way back when, she struck me as a fairly reserved individual with fairly serious leanings. As I got to know her more and more, I quickly found that this was not actually the case. She’s quite the quirky gal and has this incredibly fun and carefree side to her that I’m glad to have shared in over the years. I will never forget the day she told me of how she and Eric met… I still remember my disbelief and the hilarity that ensued as she did a play-by-play re-enactment of what happened…
Cut scene to the University of Western Ontario in London, ON some years ago: Jaclyn walks into one of her many lectures, spots one of the TA’s at the front of the room and thinks "Who’s that? He is hot!" Somewhere in her mind, she was determined to catch his attention but she had to do it in a way that was somewhat subtle… of course, Jaclyn’s idea of subtle takes on different levels! In comes the fuchsia/magenta dress… yes, we are talking eye-catching! Except that she didn’t wear this to a bar or a club, no… Jaclyn wore it to class! She definitely caught Eric’s eye and since then… it’s been nothing but love!
I joked with Jac during the shoot yesterday saying how it would have been funny if she had worn the pivotal dress… but alas, it was at her parents’ place back in London. Eric had a bit of a grin on his face when I brought the dress up! I had an awesome(!) time shooting Jac & Eric yesterday. We couldn’t have asked for a better day to do it. For my very first engagement shoot, it went so smoothly and these two were so at ease in front of the camera, it was like any other day for them (quirky, endearing and so much fun!). Todmorden Mills was a brilliant location for them, with all of its nooks and crannies… Graham was the one who reminded me of this location… thanks babe!
Thanks so much, Jaclyn and Eric, for letting me be a part of such special moments. I hope I did you and those memories justice!
Lots of love,
I absolutely love this photo!
This was the cutest thing… we walked up to this house and both peered in. Meanwhile, they had no idea I was still taking shots!
This may be my fav photo from this shoot… it’s definitely in the top three!
So much fun!
