Lisa & James - A Golden Hour Stroll by Saharsh Cherian

You don't need to be engaged to have a couple's shoot. And that was just the case with the delightful Lisa & James. A man from Ottawa and a lady from Toronto collided in U of T over 8 years ago and wanted to commemorate the occasion by getting some pictures on the campus that brought them together.

The weather on the days leading up to it were less than ideal so it was a bit touch and go for a while but come 5 o clock on out day the clouds and sun got together to give us the perfect light and setting for a wonderful shoot.

Both Lisa and James preemptively and repeatedly apologized for their awkwardness in front of the camera, but as soon as I put my Nikon to my face I learned that they were no good liars. They took to posing like moths to a flame and barely needed any instruction from me as they just naturally enjoyed each others' presence and made each other look good.

Cheers to 8 years, and to many many more!

Marisol & Fabio - Smoke and Amors by Saharsh Cherian

Here was a first for me and the couple alike. When the soon to be married Marisol & Fabio came to me with the idea of incorporating colourful smoke bombs into their engagement shoot, I was all over it. This was going to be fun.

We made our way to a remote part of Rouge Park on one of the unfortunately warmer days of the summer. The lovely couple were a pair of troopers though, and Marisol was trudging through wild brush in her heels without blinking an eye to get the shot.

The happy couple were amazing throughout the shoot, and Fabio may have taken a minute to get into it but by gum did he get into it, making Marisol and myself laugh throughout making for some wonderful candid shots.

The colours of the park, the smoke bombs, her hair, and his....i don't know...eyes(?) made for a lovely day and some great images.

Also, did you know that smoke bombs smell like a thousand burning matches? I do, now.

Worth it!
