When Ratchel approached me with the creative concept of a canoe engagement shoot, I was SO unbelievably excited. This was something I had been dying to do for quite a long time. I could already imagine the notebook vibes: serene lake, the delicate ripples in the water, and Ratchel & Paul paddling along together.
The evening couldn't have been more perfect for this shoot. Ratchel wore a gorgeous white mini dress with cottage core aesthetics. The sky was a canvas, painted with beautiful cloud patterns that added drama and depth to the scene. The golden hour was upon us, and nature seemed to be in a generous mood as the water of the lake mirrored this golden light, creating an almost surreal ambiance.
If you've ever thought about doing canoe engagement photos, this is your sign. There's something incredibly romantic and timeless about these shoots. The tranquility of the water, the intimacy of the canoe, the gorgeous natural backdrop - everything comes together to create pictures that are not just visually stunning, but also filled with emotion and meaning. And while you're at it, remember that the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the moment. After all, these photos are a celebration of your love and togetherness.
I can't wait for Ratchel & Paul's wedding in the Dominican Republic next summer!
