Springbank Park Engagement Session - Lujain and Vince

VinceAndLujainSpringbankEngagementSession-RebeccaNashPhotography (3)  

When I first met these two, they seemed so quiet and shy.

 

It didn't take long to find out that even with an 'electrifying' personality like his - Vince was often the strong silent type but when he looked at Lujain it was a different story. He may not have said much, but you can be sure there was love there. Why else would he have agreed to engagement portrait (when he doesn't love photos) and even braving potential spiders (something they both hate) to put a smile on her face?

 

Now don't go thinking it's all one sided here...Lujain's love for Vince is just as evident. From the way she loves seeing even the tiniest of smiles cross his face to the way she loves leaving lipstick on his cheek. These two have found their other half.

I couldn't help falling in love with this couples love for each other, their nervous laughter, and their willingness to try anything (as long as I did a quick spider check first).

 

I can't wait to share their wedding day too!

Now it's time to turn it over to Lujain & Vince and hear about their love story in their own words...

 

 

We have been dating since September 12, 2011

VinceAndLujainSpringbankEngagementSession-RebeccaNashPhotography (5)

We met at a friend's bonfire. Vince spent most of the night changing the music on the radio, which helped spark the first conversation. Lujain was jokingly insulting Vince's "DJ skills". From there we became quick friends and aneven better couple.

VinceAndLujainSpringbankEngagementSession-RebeccaNashPhotography (6)

 

Vince: When we went on our first camping trip to the pinary on the dunes. As usual we were running late and began setting up the tent after dark. I couldnt help but to notice how well we work together and no matter how frustrating the task may be, we work through it and make an enjoyable memory of it. I found myself wishing for a lifetime of weekends like that one.
Lujain: I don't know if there was a single moment that I can say I knew Vince was the one. Vince is just someone who part takes in all my adventures and schemes. When we went for a walk in Springbank park when we were first getting to know each other. He helped me walk the dogs and we spent the whole time laughing and talking. We ended the night on the swings and lost track of time. It was the first time I felt like someone actually was listenng to me. Other moments would be when we make people around us just crack up. He annoys me and makes me laugh all at the same time. I love him.

VinceAndLujainSpringbankEngagementSession-RebeccaNashPhotography (7)

 

Vince : My favourite thing about lujain is her drive to help others even when it is no easy task. she always makes you feel like a priority.
Lujain: My favorite thing about Vince is his passion. He will never do a task half assed, from cutting the grass , to fixing the roof, to taking care of me when I'm hurt. Vince is always dedicated and takes pride in everything he does.

VinceAndLujainSpringbankEngagementSession-RebeccaNashPhotography (8)

We love to fish, hunt, skydive, ride the motorcycles, play with our dogs, climb things we probably shouldn't and binge watch tv with pizza in our laps.

VinceAndLujainSpringbankEngagementSession-RebeccaNashPhotography (10)

Vince hates getting his picture taken, so the fact that he is willing to do this because it makes me happy, shows you what a great guy he is. Plus it's kind of fun pushing him out of his comfort zone and sharing how handsome he is :)

Jess & Kevin's Beach Engagement

PortFranksEngagementSessionJessAndKevin20160618DSC_1324303  

Last week I had the pleasure of spending my Saturday Night with two AMAZING people.

 

Are you likely to see them on the news or watch people clamor to take a selfie with them? Maybe not, but to me they are heros. Why?

 

To see the woman Jessica is, how she has pushed through every obstacle and health struggle that has been placed in her path but only came out stronger, kinder and more loving. To see the way Kevin looks at Jessica with love...a lovethat has seen her struggle and stood by her side from a man that stands by her side ready to carry her when she's not sure she can take another step, to put her feet back on her path, who is ready not to walk ahead or trail behind but always be the man standing beside her facing life's struggles and celebrating life's beauty together every step of the way.

 

Before I get too carried away and I lose sight of my screen for the tears of love and joy for these two (yep- I am that sappy/emotional) I want to hand it over to Jessica & Kevin to tell you a little bit more about who they are.

In their words...

 

How long have you known each other? 2 years

 

How did you meet?

We met online! It's embarrassing, but becoming the norm for meeting people. Our first meeting was magical! When did you know your fiance was 'the one'? (both answer please) We both knew on our first meeting that there was something very special between us. We had a magical first date which included a beautiful drive, a walk on the beach, dinner and fireworks on the beach. After that first date, we were inseparable. Soulmates. We would ready to get married that first week together.

 

What is your favourite thing about your fiance? My favourite thing about Kevin is his kind and gentle spirit; he is very sweet and caring. - Jess

My favourite thing about Jessica is her empathetic ways. - Kevin

 

What do you love to do together? We love to sit at home together and watch movies or binge on a good TV series. We also love our family time. When we have both our children (Aiden and Jillian) at the house, we enjoy spending time at the park. We are very low key!

 

Is there anything else you'd like to share? We both feel complete and have feelings of wholeness as a family since finding each other. We are truly blessed. Not everyone finds their soulmate, their other half! The one who understands them on that other level!

Port Frank's Sunset Beach Engagement Portraits - Jessica & Kevin's Engagement Sneak Peek

Sunset in Port Franks with Jessica & Kevin for their Engagement Portrait session  

I still remember opening up my email to find an inquiry from someone named Jessica. She was inquiring about my wedding photography services.

 

The more we chatted, the more it felt like this was someone that I was meant to serve. Jessica is a beautiful, kind, and loving woman who has faced many struggles in her life but she and her fiance Kevin had weathered them. It was these struggles that connected Jessica and I even more. Not just as photographer and bride, but as friends who understood at least some of what the other had been through.

 

Together with their children, I am excited to be sharing this journey with Jessica & Kevin. I can't wait to celebrate their marriage with them in October. I know it's going to be a very personal and emotional day.

 

For today, just one little teaser image. Keep your eyes out for more of their engagement portrait session and their story coming very soon.

Janice & Shyle's Engagement Portraits

Janice and Shyle are a fun loving couple who wanted to incorporate their love of city life and personal style into some beautiful engagement portraits.
The one thing I couldn't get over...the way they laugh and smile together, the way they look at each other, and their love for each other!
Janice & Shyle Engagement - London Rebecca Nash Photography (1 of 53) (49)

 

Now I'm turning it over to Janice & Shyle to tell us a little more about their love story!

 

Since 2008
 Janice & Shyle Engagement - London Rebecca Nash Photography (1 of 53) (4)

 

Janice - Through an old girlfriend in college. She was dating him and introduced him to our group of friends. We didn't meet again until 2013 when I messaged him through blackberry messenger and asked him if he had any single friends. Turns out he was the "friend" and we met up later that week. The rest is history.
Shyle - I dated one of her friends way back in 2008-2009, so she met me that way.
 Janice & Shyle Engagement - London Rebecca Nash Photography (1 of 53) (9)

 

Janice - I knew he was the one the day he came to my condo in Toronto. This was November 2013. I hadn't seen him in years and the moment he came through the door, I knew there was something special about him. I was right and we have been together ever since.
Shyle - Shortly after the first time I saw her again in a few years. We started talking again, after being merely acquaintances, then we ended up seeing each other to hang out, then perhaps after like 3 more occasions of hanging out I realized that she was the one for me. And we've been inseparable ever since.
 Janice & Shyle Engagement - London Rebecca Nash Photography (1 of 53) (16)

 

Janice - His kindness. He is the kindest person I know and that says a lot. He is always there and always willing to help me out. Always puts me first and treats me like a princess.
Shyle - She keeps me honest, encourages me everyday, and makes me want to be a better person.

Janice & Shyle Engagement - London Rebecca Nash Photography (1 of 53) (25)

Janice - spending time with our daughter as a family.
Shyle - Movies, relaxing, going out together (bars, hanging out with friends, bowling)

Shyle - We go to Moxies every year to celebrate our anniversary, and we wear the exact same outfit every year. It was the place we went to for dinner the first time we went out for dinner. Essentially our first date!

Jenna & Tom's Fanshawe Engagement Portraits

You know when you meet someone and you just hit it off. This couple was like that. You could feel right from the get go that Jenna & Tom were going to be like that.

This couple is fun loving, enthusiastic about everything they do and have a fabulous sense of humour. I couldn't have been happier to share a beautiful morning with them at Fanshawe Conservation Area here in London capturing their engagement portraits.

 

Jenna&Tom-Engagement20150703DSC_2102265

 

It took 3 tries (thanks torrential downpours) to make this this fun loving couples outdoor portrait session happen, but third time certainly is the charm!

 

A little more about Jenna & Tom in their own words...

We've known each other since Elementary School
 Jenna&Tom-Engagement20150703DSC_2153265
How did you meet?

Tom and I grew up a literally a block apart from each other, after Tom moved into the area when he was in grade 6.

Jenna&Tom-Engagement20150703DSC_2265265

 

Jenna- I think it took us both awhile to decide on FOREVER, our friends and family seemed to notice it before us. After moving to the other side of the world and realizing how we always had our great adventures together, I knew I had to come home and be with him to continue our great adventures.
Tom- When she decided to come home from Australia to be with me.

Jenna&Tom-Engagement20150703DSC_2374265

 

Tom - 'No day is ever boring'
Jenna- ' The things we do together, and of course being amazingly handy is always a bonus'

 

Jenna&Tom-Engagement20150703DSC_2416265

Random road trips , renovations/projects. hang out by the water in our great town and spend time with the family! We love to joke around and have a great time!!!
Congratulations to Jenna & Tom on their engagement and what I know will be an amazing wedding!
It's been my honour and my pleasure getting to know you both and I hope we cross paths again very soon.

Katy & Cheryl's London Garden Engagement Session

What better way to get to know a couple, then to hear about them in their own words. So, without further a do...a few words from Katy & Cheryl. London Same Sex Engagement - London Photographer Rebecca Nash Photography (1 of 11)

 

 

5 1/2 yrs
  London Same Sex Engagement - London Photographer Rebecca Nash Photography (8 of 11)

A mutual friend. Katy is convinced it was a set up. He's a member of our wedding party and a colleague of mine from work.

 

Pretty much the first day we met (and that IS both our answers).
London Same Sex Engagement - London Photographer Rebecca Nash Photography (4 of 11)

Cheryl - my girl's smile.
Katy - her kind heart and soul and laugh.

Gardening, walking, travelling, watching tv (Big Bang Theory), nights out including a nice meal and generally just hanging around each other.
London Same Sex Engagement - London Photographer Rebecca Nash Photography (6 of 11)
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
We have our moments, ones we like to call 'A day in the life of Katy and Cheryl.' Katy is somewhat hard of hearing and sometimes misinterprets what she hears. One of our favourites is the day we were chatting and I read a status from a friend's Facebook page, saying "My friend Lynn just got her diver's license! " (Lynn lives on a boat) Katy - "Huh, how does that make any sense?" Cheryl - "What do you mean?" Katy - "Your friend got a gremlin?" Cheryl - "No, I said, my friend Lynn got her diver's license." Katy - "Oh, I wondered about that, I mean gremlins aren't supposed to get wet..." Sigh. This explains us.
London Same Sex Engagement - London Photographer Rebecca Nash Photography (11 of 11)
A huge thank you goes to Katy & Cheryl for taking the time to share a little bit about their love story with us today.
I am so insanely excited to work with these fantastic ladies on their beautiful August 2015 wedding day!
Yours Enthusiastically,

St Thomas Train Station Engagement Portrait Session

You know when you met a couple, and you can tell right away they have a connection. Maybe they finish each others sentences, maybe they are always together, or maybe, they are just united with each other over their love and they passion for the family they have created. Courtney and Josh are one of these couples!

Today I'm thrilled to share with you a sneak peek of the portraits we created of this fantastic couple and their little guy at the St Thomas Train Station. There's no doubt that while this little guy loves his dad, his 'Coco' is the apple of his eye.

While a picture tells a thousand words, the story of this fantastic couple is better shared in theirs so without further ado, I'm turning it over to Courtney & Josh.

 

Just slightly over a year

We met through a mutual friend, than again at cowboys one night where I dismissed him because I was having a girls night! So mean, haha, we didn't talk for a few weeks after that until I reached out to him because I realized he could be a great guy and sure enough he is!
London Photographer Rebecca Nash - Courtney & Josh EngagamentApril 11, 2015-102

Courtney- I knew Josh was the one within a few weeks of us dating, I just had this feeling about him that I had never felt before. He made me giddy and excited about life. When we weren't together I missed him terribly, to the point where we started basically living together after a few months of dating. Also a big point when I realized I wanted to marry this man was seeing him with his son, he is a great father.
Josh- There was stages for me, I knew that she was the one not only for me but also my son Xavier, how she chose to love him like her own and deal with all the other logistics of being a step-mother. I love how she stands by me no matter what, that was when I knew I wanted her in my life forever, we had numerous conversations about life and what we wanted out of it but it wasn't until I took a step back and realized she was all I wanted, and I could stop looking, on that day I went and bought her ring and proposed to her.

London Photographer Rebecca Nash - Courtney & Josh EngagamentApril 11, 2015-41

Courtney- Ahh, there is so many things, it is hard to narrow it down to just one. I would have to say my favourite thing about him is how hard he works to make me happy and express his love for me. His eyes are also pretty killer.
Josh- Again, there is so many things I love about her. I can't narrow it down to one, I love her willingness and drive to fight for what she believes is right, it takes so much strength and courage to be a step-mother and go through the things we have together. I also melt when she holds my hand, kisses me, and her laugh is absolutely adorable.
London Photographer Rebecca Nash - Courtney & Josh EngagamentApril 11, 2015-49
What do you love to do together?
Being outside has to be one of our favourite things to do together, just enjoying the sun and the relaxation of the outdoors, that and eating we both love to eat, always trying new things and exciting foods.
London Photographer Rebecca Nash - Courtney & Josh EngagamentApril 11, 2015-117
I can't even begin to express how excited I am to work with this fantastic family for their August 2016 wedding day!

After the session had concluded we trekked back to the cars and began a new adventure this time filled with cars stuck in the snow, car problems and tow trucks. Not the way we planned things but I think we can safely say it's a session neither of us will forget too soon.

Portrait Sneak Peek: An evening with Kristin & Phil

London Wedding Photographer Rebecca Nash spent an evening at the beach in Port Franks capturing Engagement Portraits for Kristin & Phil just over a month after their Destination Wedding  

These two people are so beautiful inside and out. After years of connecting online with Kristin I was thrilled to spend the evening behind the camera celebrating this beautiful couple.

Port Franks beach is a special place to both of them. Near the cottage they loved, this is a place where they spent time and made memories so it only seemed a natural location for an intimate but fun filled evening of sunset couples portraits to celebrate their love and their recent marriage.

Congratulations to both of them as they start their lives together!
