I love props and I encourage all my couple to bring something during their engagement shoot. Props bring a completely different dimension to the shoot, but more importantly, touching something familiar just makes people feel more relaxed. In the case of Pauline and Phillip, they brought a mandolin. What makes it better is that he knows how to play it!! (Sidebar: I’m totally starstruck at anyone that can play a string instrument)

What better place to have an engagement session than at the Music Garden along the Harbourfront.

    Sweet set Ryan! I really like the first one, I can see it printed on a big canvas and hanging somewhere in their house.

    These are fantastic, Ryan. I really love the variety, and especially like the one under the big steel dome.

    Great job on these Ryan. Nice looking couple and really good photos of them spending a relaxed day together.
