I met up with Cailin and Lange early last summer here in Kingston to discuss their wedding plans and immediately knew I wanted to shoot their wedding. Their sense of humor, their obvious love and adoration for each other (and Rugby) was something I wanted to photograph. They told me the story of Lange proposing on the Rideau Canal (nearby to where they live in Ottawa) and we talked about shooting their engagement photos there in the winter. Fast forward a year and we squashed the idea of a winter engagement session and decided to meet up on the May 2-4 weekend at Lange’s family cottage on the far side of Amherst Island.
We explored the village, found some neat places to shoot, and made a new friend in Paul The Blacksmith (who loaned us the awesome old car he rebuilt with the Corvette engine in it) before heading back to the cottage to sit by the water and build a fire (and maybe we had a beer).
Here’s some of my favorites from our time on “The Island.”
