Emma + Matt | Lac Leslie Engagement
Emma + Matt invited me to stay overnight at their family cottage (they made me chicken fingers and fries..which is my love language and bought me all the plain food I like lol) on Leslie Lake, Quebec for their fall engagement photos. Emma and I have been friends since we were little kids and if you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll remember her and Matt from the Tremblant summit shoot last winter. I dragged them there because I wanted to do a couples shoot up there. Matt surprised Emma by proposing at Christmas that year and the shoot turned into a bit of an engagement shoot because now Emma had a ring. But what they really wanted for their official engagement photos was a fall shoot on the lake with a canoe because Emma used to go on long canoe trips in Northern Canada.
We drove down to the lake Sunday night and did a shoot by the lake. We were running a bit late and only ended up having 20 or so minutes before the sun went down and I ended up curling Emma’s hair while she did her make up. Then the following morning we got up before the sun and did an other shoot. We had to wait for an hour + after the official sunset time for their to actually be enough light because there were so many clouds. This time we included their ADORABLE dog Cash .. who recently had a bath to look all clean for the engagement shoot and ended up looking more like a giant fluffy sheep than a dog.
Emma + Matt are one of my 2019 couples and I’m SO STOKED TO SHOOT THEIR WEDDING next year!! Until then, here are their fall engagement photos from a few weeks ago. The leaves were all the best fall colours and held on long enough just for us.
