Belfountain Conservation at the Forks of the Credit is a great spot for an engagement session. I highly recommend going during the week to beat the crowds, but the area has a lot of options for photography and great light late in the afternoon. Journalistic, unposed engagement sessions are a lot of fun in an area like this with a lot to do like walk around the pond, explore long laneways filled with colourful leaves, beautiful black wrought iron fencing, a waterfall, and this moss covered fountain right in the middle of it all, oh and a suspension bridge.
Weather: Late fall day 4pm partly sunny
Location: Belfountain Conservation
They were great together and all I had to do was put them in the right spot and let the magic happen. This is the pond right at the entrance fed by the Forks of the Credit River that eventually leads to the waterfall.
The fall colours for this journalistic engagement session were spectacular. This area also has a lot of opportunity to shoot from different levels. I was able to get above them easily and use a lot of different backdrops.
One of my favourite things as a wedding photographer is the ability to photograph brides of all sizes. This curvy bride was very comfortable in front of the camera and it allowed me to photograph her with the best angles and light available.
Journalistic photography is all about keeping your couple engaged with each other so that you can actually capture the natural moments happening between them. Often, I will ask them to repeatedly walk for me while looking at each other and 90% of the time they will give me moments like. I love the way she is looking at him here.
Photographing my couple while taking advantage of the late day sun peeking through the trees. I will still photograph curvy brides with my style in mind and be careful to flatter their full figure.
