There’s something pretty magical about getting to explore a new place with the person you love most! Because I live in Ottawa, Canada (aka one of the greenest cities EVER), there’s no shortage of beautiful places to check out on a nice day. Jana + Mahmoud were dying to do waterfall engagement photos, so I did a quick search and found these beautiful falls right in town!
That golden glow!
The best time of day for engagement photos in autumn?
3pm is a good start time – but check with your photographer first!
We started at the base of the waterfall, and then hiked up and through the trails in the woods. Shooting in the fall is always so gorgeous, especially when you can find orange canopies like this!
Use your engagement photos to capture the little details
Jana got me to take a close up of her gorgeous gold necklace. I asked her what it meant – it’s each of their names in Arabic. So cool!
As the sun went down, the woods started to get dark so we headed to nearby Petrie Island in the Ottawa River. With summer crowds long gone, we had the beach all to ourselves.
One thing I always recommend for your engagement photos – multiple outfits!
One dressy, one casual, or even three or four outfits!
When you book with me, I send you my outfit guide and help you plan out what to wear so you can feel like your best self but still be comfy! 😉
