Chantelle and Lucas’ Engagement Session – Stouffville / Pickering Farm

One of the questions I ask my couples before their engagement session is, “Is there a place that is of significance to you?”  Sometimes they can’t think of anywhere specific, but sometimes they look at each other, smile, moments start rolling in their minds of some great memories together, and they know exactly where they want to go.  It turns out that Lucas grew up on a farm where his family breeds race horses — so we definitely needed to make a visit to the farm, meet all the animals, and get this cowboy to wear his hat and his boots!  Apparently, the best way to wrap up an engagement session is to have some of Lucas’ mother’s home-made goulash — I hear it’s delicious beyond all reason :)

Chantelle and Lucas are both from Stouffville and their story is one where the lesson is “persistence is key”.  Chantelle was working at the bar’s coat check and Lucas was the slightly intoxicated, ‘immature’ boy who wouldn’t leave her alone all night long!

On the day that he was to propose, Chantelle came home way too early and ruined her own home-cooked, romantic dinner surprise. He ended up ordering in food instead and they shared a candlelit dinner together. Then, he presented her with 3 roses: one representing the past, one representing the present, and one representing the future — she said “Yes!”.

Looking forward to their wedding in October!

What kind of cowboy gentleman lets his bride-to-be walk around the farm in heels like that? She should be piggy-backed at least. Seriously though, great shots of a great couple. All the best guys.

These moments captured are stunning! You are such a gorgeous couple. If there was one heading for each of them it would definately be "In Love!!!" You both look so naturally into each other in every single shot. You are perfect for each other and these pics define that <3 Congrats to you both Chantelle and Lucas

Chantelle, Be careful. Lucas looks a lot like Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain... These are some great shots, Christopher. Will forward your stuff to a couple friend of mine, soon to have their first child. Sang
