When Brittany & Matt suggested that we shoot their engagement photos in Elora, Ontario, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. We were disappointed that the Elora Conservation Area was closed for the season, but we wandered around Elora and found some great locations for photos.
At first, Brittany seemed upset that we weren’t able to shoot in the Conservation Area, like we had planned, but I wasn’t worried. I knew we’d be able to find a good location for photos, but I wasn’t expecting a beautiful abandoned mill to shoot at. This was the perfect backdrop and I was almost relieved that the conservation area was closed. Although I’m sure the conservation area would have been beautiful, I don’t think we would have had the variety of backgrounds as we did.
I feel like almost every shoot I have where something doesn’t go to plan, my faith that everything will work out in the end is reinforced. It seems like every time something goes “wrong,” the results end up being better than they would have been if everything had gone to plan. It’s funny how that works.
A nice man suggested we walk around the corner, where we found a beautiful wooded area with some look-out points to the gorge.
Congratulations to Brittany & Matt on their engagement. All the best to you both.
