When I met up with Shannon a while back to discuss photography for her wedding, she mentioned that she and her fiance Dan wanted to take photos at their cottage on Lake Huron for their engagement session. It wasn’t just any location either… there was much more sentimental value to the location even though they hadn’t owned it more than half a year when I sat down with Shannon. Their newly purchased cottage was where Dan proposed to Shannon… the first day they owned it. They had just closed the deal and signed the papers for the property when Dan led her down by the shoreline and to Shannon’s surprise (she really was surprised!), he asked her to spend the rest of their lives together.
I was already pretty excited for this shoot but my expectations were just blown away as soon as I saw the shoreline driving north of Goderich. The sight was breathtaking… and when they gave me a tour down on their beach and the surrounding area, I couldn’t stop gaping with awe at the gorgeousness around me. The water, the white sandy dunes and beaches, the tall blowing grass in the wind… everything about Lake Huron was stunning.
Shannon & Dan: You guys were amazing and you completely rocked your session. Thank you for inviting me out to your cottage to capture some sweet, fun moments between you two. I had a great time and everything about that afternoon was absolutely perfect. I can’t wait to document your wedding in September… good times!
Much love & hugs, Jenne.
Shannon’s just got the most radiant smile… so beautiful!
Right there… that’s where it happened. Right in that spot in this image, is where Dan asked Shannon to marry her!
One of my faves… Gotta love Dan’s expression!
There was a lot of playfulness happening… uncontrollable laughing and all!
I absolutely love this image… something about the way her legs cross and the overall image that makes me smile.
This is Legolas (a.k.a. Lego)… he is quite the furry creature and is clearly loved.
