Trinity Bellwoods Engagement Photos


Last week I met up with Alana & Matt for their Trinity Bellwoods/ Lisa Marie engagement session! This shoot was extra special to me for a few reasons. To start, I’ve known Alana for years now and I am so excited for her and Matt to tie the knot! Secondly, my own engagement session with my wife Devon took place in Trinity Bellwoods Park so it’s always nice to go back there. It definitely brings up some sweet fall memories!

I arrived at the park early to scope some spots for us to shoot and couldn’t believe the sea of people in front of my eyes. It was probably the nicest day of the year so far and everybody was out. Everybody. I have never seen this area so busy and I’ve been living around the corner for over 2 years now!

We started shooting in the north (and quieter) part of the park and slowly made our way south. So many dogs, I thought I was in heaven! We walked from the park to Lisa Marie, which is a super cool restaurant on Queen St. W. Since Alana and Matt are friends with the owner, we got special attention! The guys shared a plate of assorted meat and things got sticky. Literally! If you are ever around that area I highly recommend you check out Lisa Marie. The food is so delicious and the atmosphere is everything you can expect from a place in the heart of Queen St.

After the lovely feast, we headed back to the car and took a few more fun shots with the guys in their Blue Jay caps on the way. I love how different and serious some of these are!

Fun Fact: We found the initials Alana and Matt put down on the wall of Lisa Marie when they were first dating!
