Arielle + Nick | Fall Engagement Shoot | Arboretum

On a crisp fall day, I met with Arielle and Nick to shoot their engagement session in the Arboretum. Although they are soon to be married down south in the warm, luscious climate of Costa Rica, they were interested in a quick fall shoot to share their exciting news. We were fairly limited in terms of timeline and fall colours, but we made the best out of the situation amongst the still-green trees... Not to mention, it’s always a lot more fun when a couple brings along their dog to be a part of the shoot!

Wishing these two a wonderful wedding and a happy marriage! Here are a few of my favourite images from our session.
