Strathcona Park Engagement Photos
Last week I shot some Ottawa engagement photos with bikes (and two humans!). These avid cyclists wanted to incorporate their lifestyle into their engagement session. I was all over that idea, since it was so unique.
We went to nearby Strathcona Park, which is where they cycle through each day to get to work. I like that their lifestyle leaves a very small carbon footprint on the planet. They live in the city close to most everything they need, so they can cycle to those places. They help save the environment, while they stay fit. It’s a win-win. We need more people like them. 🙂
Their session was fun to photograph. They’re both pretty fun people and pretty easy going too–even when I made them walk back and forth many times with their bikes, so that I could shoot. I also made them ride up a small part of the bike path many times to get some riding shots. But I guess it’s totally up their alley, so they were good with it.
I’m really looking forward to shooting their wedding next month because they plan to have a tandem bike to use for some of their photos. How cool is that? It’s going to be epic, especially since I’ve never shot any other Ottawa engagement photos with bikes. Honestly, I can’t wait!
FYI, engagement sessions are really one of my favourite sorts of photos to shoot. If you’re newly engaged, great! I’d love to hear from you. Contact me to book your e-session. And if you’re also on the search for a wedding photographer, I’d be happy to email you my wedding pricing guide.
