Adam and I are HUGE outdoors people. As soon as that sun warms up enough, the woods and water call to us. When Francesca and Matthew told us they wanted a true Canadian fall engagement photo session we did a little happy dance.
There is a beautiful spot in Hamilton, called Princess Point that borders Cootes Paradise, that ticked all the boxes for what this couple had planned. Fall colours, forest, lake, canoe, Hudson’s Bay blanket, and can’t forget our love of plaid.
True Canadiana photo sessions are something that we love to do but when we learned that there was a special meaning behind it for these two, our hearts melted.
Francesca and Matthew’s love has taken them all around the world. They met on the small island of Malta where they both happened to be from the same village. Matthew had moved away to Australia but in the summer of 2010, a trip home to Malta, a chance meeting with this beautiful girl and a simple, “hello” had changed their lives forever. Love at first sight was at it again! Needless to say, Matthew’s flight back to Australia got cancelled and these two made the move to Canada instead.
5 years later, in the intimacy of their home, Matthew got on one knee and the rest is history.
These engagement photographs will bring the story of their Canadian life together to their Maltese wedding in the town where they met.
