Alannah + Gabriel | Engagement Shoot in the 1000 Islands and Boldt Castle

When Alannah and Gabe asked me if I wanted to board a yacht, take a little trip around the 1000 Islands and visit an old castle for their engagement session, I jumped at the opportunity. Who wouldn't want to spend an evening out on the water (in style!), let alone shoot at such a picturesque location? There is no shortage of beautiful places to take photos in Ottawa, but sometimes it's just nice to get out of the city and explore something new. I had never visited Boldt Castle before so I was excited for the challenge and inspired to get some great shots.

Needless to say, I was not disappointed. The castle and its grounds offered so much variety - everywhere I looked I seemed to find a new spot for a photo. All in all, our adventure in the 1000 Islands couldn't have gone better - I got to hang out with an awesome couple, cruise around in a yacht and do what I love to do... all in a day's work!

Stay tuned for Alannah and Gabe's wedding photos!!
