{Robyn & James Engagement}

You don’t get married for yourself, you get married because you’re better together than separate.”
― Dirk Hayhurst


All right! This is my kind of photo shoot!


For Robyn & James’ engagement pictures, it was decided that spending some time in the kitchen of his homey apartment would make for some fun pictures.  Hmmm….and what would one do in the kitchen? Cook, of course! They set to work making a gourmet pizza and I set to work photographing their progress!


I’ve never been so hungry at a photo shoot in my life! Watching through my lens as they measured and mixed and chopped and sliced, my anticipation level was high (both for the results of their cooking and the results of the photos!).  I’m sure they noticed my tummy growling! And lucky me, the dough recipe called for beer and there was enough left over to share!


I think that this was a fantastic idea for their session. It gives insight into something that they enjoy, as well as being a setting that they are clearly comfortable in. Not only were there a lot of great candid and spontaneous moments caught on film, there was also opportunity for some more traditional posed pictures as well.


After the prep work was done, the pizza went in the oven and we decided that it was a perfect time to take some pictures of Robyn & James with another hobby: Lords of Waterdeep, a Dungeons & Dragons board game.  I must say, it looks like a pretty intense battle!


And next came the moment we’d been waiting for! Pizza perfection! Time to take the pizza out of the oven! After they sliced the pizza (excellent practice for when they cut the wedding cake), we thoroughly enjoyed all of their hard work….Delicious!


With intentions of getting some beautiful outdoor pictures (as well as walking off our full tummies), we strolled over to Victoria Park where Mother Nature provided a glorious backdrop of autumn leaves and funky trees.


Thanks a million to Robyn & James for feeding the photographer a feast! Can’t wait to capture your wedding day memories!
