London Ontario Wedding Photographer | Emily and Geoff's Engagement Session

When talking to Emily about her upcoming engagement session, she mentioned a few times that she really wanted her photos to be unique. And I have to say, these have got to be the most unique engagement photos I have ever taken... but not so much thanks to me, more so thanks to the crazy weather! We almost cancelled the session due to storm warnings and on and off rain all throughout the day, but because Emily and Geoff had come in to London from out of town, we decided to go for it. When we arrived at Fanshawe Conservation Area, the sun was beginning to dip down and we had beautiful rays of golden light for a few minutes before it started to rain. After the short rain showers, the sky went from grey to dark blue/black as billowy storm clouds rolled in from one direction, and the setting sun shone brightly in the other direction, turning the other half of the sky into a soft pink/orange painting. Right as the sun set, the entire sky turned bright orange, and then once the sun had officially gone down, the skies were clear and blue, with only a few fluffy white clouds in the distance. As I look at these photos in sequence, it's hard to believe that they were all taken on the same day, in the same location, within minutes of each other. I have always been adamant about never using artificial sky or cloud overlays in my photos, so rest assured that these are all real skies and real clouds... nature at its best! Hope you enjoy these very unique photos of a very beautiful couple. Emily and Geoff, I can't wait for your 2014 wedding!! -xo
