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!

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.

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.

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.
