I was so excited when Melinda asked me to shoot her wedding next year, and also do an engagement session with her fiance Ben. I've known Mindy since grade one, when we met at New Lowell Public School, a tiny school full of kids from surrounding small towns. This means we have been friends for more than 20 years. That's crazy! I've moved around Ontario over the years, never very far from "home" but living in Simcoe County just feels right. Mindy and Ben currently live in Alaska, but decided to have the wedding back here in Ontario. This week, they were back in the province for a holiday visit, so I got to meet Ben, and catch up with Mindy during a sweet engagement session. We used Creemore as our scene, with some outdoor winter shots, and then headed into the cozy Bank Cafe to warm up over hot beverages. How adorable are they?!
