Toronto Engagement Session: Lisa + Gabe (Part One)

These two are just the best! Seriously the best! First off, meet Lisa and Gabe. They are really (really) in love and they are getting married this June. Lisa and I chatted about ideas for their engagement session, we sent emails back and forth, and we shared an "inspiration" photo-stream on our phones so we could gush over ideas at all times! She really wanted the session to be them. To be full of things they love and reflecting who they are. So we planned a 'Day in the Life' themed shoot with five (FIVE!) locations. Telling a couple they will be taking photos at five locations is tough - also telling a guy he'll need to take photos at five locations is especially tough! But Gabe was up for it and was a pro the entire day.

So the shoot involved an at home session with the two hanging out on a typical weekend. They made coffee, picked at a charcuterie spread, lounged on the couch reading and just goofed around. Next we went to the park where Gabe proposed to Lisa (which is also the same park where the two shared their second date together). Then to Ruby Eats where the two frequently go for groceries. And of course, we had to make a stop in at Bobbette and Belle to have a cupcake and macaron. Then we finished it off at the swanky furniture store, Avenue Road, as an ode to Lisa's interior design career.

To keep things short and sweet (pun intended) I'm just featuring the Bobbette and Belle session here today. Enjoy!
