It was one of those days where you watch the skies and refresh the radar every 30 minutes, but by late afternoon the thunderstorm risk passed and it turned into a beautiful summer evening for Kim and Jeff’s engagement session in Carleton Place. These two are so easy-going and so comfortable with each other. They laugh often and smile all the time, and are the type of people you automatically feel you could be friends with.
We started the shoot at their home in Carleton Place. Jeff has built an impressive pond in their backyard, and you can tell he takes a lot of pride in it! There are a variety of plants and aquatic critters, and Kim and Jeff told me they often sit by the pond in the evenings.
I loooooove Kim’s ring! From their home we headed down to the river — a staple in a small town like Carleton Place. The bridges and shores of the Mississippi definitely add charm to this quiet community. We walked on boardwalks, crossed a terrifying bridge with no railings, and found a farmer’s field to watch the sunset from. I hope you enjoy these images of the happy couple and the picturesque Carleton Place. Kim and Jeff, I’m looking forward to your winter wedding!
