I showed up to Springbank Park expecting to shoot yet another Spring blossoms engagement session. Come May, everyone requests this location because of the stunning colours. Don’t get me wrong, I adore those beautiful blossoming trees just as much as the next photographer, but after multiple blossom sessions in a row, it can start to feel a bit repetitive. So as I drove to the park this particular evening, I was trying to think of ways to challenge myself creatively so that this session wouldn’t just be a repeat of the engagement session I had shot in the same place a few days before. And then I showed up and Andreea was wearing the coolest skull dress, and Ryan was holding a giant black glittery skull. I had to laugh because it just reminded me that no matter what the location is, every couple brings their own flavour to make each shoot their own – and sometimes, that involves a giant skull!
