This is one of my absolute favourite locations in Ontario, and I was so pumped when Jenn + Eric said that they were down for weekend getaway! I had been out to this location the week before and it had been HOT – like sunbathing and swimming hot. It was a full blown gorgeous September day. When we arrived a week later for this sand dunes elopement, though, it was about 20° cooler and the wind was NUTS. (Think desert storm nuts ?)
Eric and I hung out at while Jenn got dressed and had her hair and makeup done by Jacquie K. We arrived to the sand dunes just as everyone else was leaving – which was amazing, since we had the whole place to ourselves!
Jenn + Eric were amazing, total troopers, and I love them for it! ❤❤❤ I had so much fun running around with them and getting sandy. I basically rolled down sand dunes for some shots ? and had to wash my clothes twice to get all the sand out.
This day is extra special for me, because it’s also the day I realized that I was pregnant. I’m so grateful that I was fortunate enough to capture so much beauty, but also that I have a significant reminder of a big life event of my own. When I capture someone else’s story, it also keeps me present and makes my own memories that much more clear.
