In Perfect Harmony: Sunset Engagement Photos at Toronto's Waterfront

September 05, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Brian and his partner have been engaged for about a month and a half, and decided to celebrate this momentous occasion with a sunset engagement photo session along the waterfront. And they couldn't have picked a better day for it! Their session took place after work in late August. One of the great things about this time of year is that you still get the warmth of summer, AND with the sun setting earlier, you don't have to be out late to reap the benefits of this beautiful light.

I arrived a bit early, so being a sucker for pretty scenery, sunsets, and water, well...I grabbed a quick snap with my DSLR.

Toronto waterfront near Simcoe Wave Deck at sunset Brian and his partner arrived not too long after that photo was taken, and we were off! We started off at the Simcoe Wave Deck. If you're wondering why that looks/sounds familiar, it's because I shot a family session there recently.

Here's one of my favourite images taken at the wave deck.

We ended up stopping at the Spadina Wave Deck for some additional photos because, even though it's not nearly as wavy as the Simcoe Wave Deck, I actually found the backdrop to be nicer, as there weren't rows and rows of boats cluttering up the background.

The Toronto Music Garden, which was again one of the locations from the family session at the waterfront, is not only a gorgeous backdrop for photos, it also fit in well with the fact that Brian is a composer. I think that the Music Garden was probably my favourite of all three locations. The sun setting, coupled with the great, big willow tree, and the elderly couple nearby practicing T'ai Chi just added to a wonderful overall mood that just can't quite be adequately described in words.

So here's a photo instead. And by the way...wouldn't this make an AWESOME location for wedding vows?

PS: After the session, I stopped for a quick snap of the CN Tower. Because, as you know, I am a sucker for CN Tower photos. And I am a super-sucker for photos of the CN Tower taken at night.

Yesterday I showed the guys their photos at their home for their proofing and ordering session, and it was just such a lovely time. As an aside, I really love proofing and ordering sessions because they always feel like I'm hanging out with friends. These sessions are just so calm and relaxing. Of course, yesterday's as extra-special because I got to meet their awesome dog, Mason, whom I probably spoiled way too much by scratching the backs of his ears, and showered with attention. I even got a quasi-handshake from Mason on the way out. Awesomeness.

Peace, love, and pics.
