M.D. + B.J. ~ The Answer is Yes!

August 22, 2012

So this is what I love about my job as a pho­tog­ra­ph­er: meet­ing new peo­ple, mak­ing new friends and see­ing when two hearts are made for each oth­er. Meet­ing Maris­sa and Basel was no excep­tion.

Ash­ley, one of my choir bud­dies, is a good friend of Maris­sa and she had a con­sid­er­ate and cre­ative idea of giv­ing this engage­ment ses­sion as a gift for Maris­sa and Basel’s wed­ding. Alas, I don’t get to take the trip to Jor­dan, where the cer­e­mo­ny will be but this ses­sion was good enough for me!

We had chat­ted on the phone pri­or to meet­ing up and I could tell right away that I was in for a treat. They had opt­ed for U of T (St. George Cam­pus) and this was going to be a chal­lenge for me as I had shot at this loca­tion twice already. How­ev­er, hav­ing had the chance to explore the cam­pus more, pushed my cre­ativ­i­ty and spots that I hadn’t used just came out of the woodworks…literally in some cas­es. This was a great com­bi­na­tion of sub­ject and back­ground as they both reliv­ed the scenes where they first met.

Could I tell you how easy they had made it for me? With a beau­ti­ful sum­mer dress and styl­ish men’s attire to match, I felt I was shoot­ing for Pra­da, Banana Repub­lic or Zara. Some­how, I felt they had mod­eled before and they lied to me and said they hadn’t … haha! Whether they did or not, these two sin­cere souls had posed enchant­i­ng­ly so as to cap­ture these pre­cious moments before con­sid­er­ing them­selves hus­band and wife.

Ash, thanks sooo much for this oppor­tu­ni­ty! Maris­sa and Basel, it was such a plea­sure to meet you and con­sid­er you as friends. Wish­ing you the bestest of times on your upcom­ing wed­ding!
