Scott and Emma Arboretum and Rideau Canal Engagement

Scott and Emma got engaged on the first nice day of spring. Scott had planned a nice bike ride and pick nick, and proposed with a gorgeous custom made sapphire and diamond engagement ring.

We met for me to photograph their engagement session at the arboretum on Sunday, after a few snow falls during the day, and it was FREEZING! Soon after arriving, they informed me that had chosen to have their engagement session at the arboretum, because it was the place where the proposal took place six short months prior. Aren’t they just the cutest?

It was great to spend some extra time photographing them playing in the fall leaves, enjoying themselves. It was peak fall season in Ottawa and the trees were filled with orange and red autumn colour! Beside the temperature, we really chose the best time to photography and document their love.

After enjoying the gorgeousness of the Ottawa Arboretum and the freezing “crispness” that is this fall, we drove to the Ottawa Corktown Footbridge to lock their custom “love lock” to the bridge. The view from the bridge is simply gorgeous, overlooking the Ottawa Rideau Canal and the Chateau Laurier.

We couldn’t resist and finish the day with a nice stroll by the Rideau Canal. I will never get tired of the gorgeous Canadian fall colours!

They are getting married in London Ontario. Their wedding venue is one of the most popular venue in the area, and they were really lucky that when they inquired a year ago, there was only one day available! They booked it right away and will be getting married this coming August long weekend.
