Parry Sound Cottage Engagement on Lake Wahwashkesh

Steph and Sean really wanted to do their engagement session at a place that had a lot of meaning to them and to them that was Sean’s family cottage up on  Lake Wahwashkesh. Lake Wahwashkesh is the largest lake in the Parry Sound district. I cannot encourage my couples enough if you have a spot that has a special meaning to the two of you this is the best place to do your engagement session as it is here you feel the most comfortable and at ease for your photos, which is so easy to see for Steph and Sean’s Parry Sound cottage engagement session.

I really try to spend time before the start of every engagement session just relaxing with my couples hanging out making it feel like we are just there to hang out instead of taking photos. We relaxed for quite sometime chatting over beers and the yummiest charcuterie board. This way after we have spent sometime talking it now feels like we are friends instead of just a stranger that has shown up to photograph you. This also helps the two of you feel more comfortable with each other. I love to provide light guidance or prompts to the two of you throughout your photos but try to really let the two of you be totally yourselves. Whether you are silly, adventurous or energetic I want this to really show through in your photos!

Chris brought the drone with us so we could have some fun get some great arial shots of them on the dock and in the canoe! I love being able to use the drone for a different view that what our regular cameras can capture. As the sun set behind the horizon the sky and the lake turned a beautiful shade of pink/purple and everyone was just in awe.  With the water such a spectacular colour we safely got Steph and Sean into their canoe and sent them out for a little adventure around the lake. We stayed outside until there was no light left for us anymore, headed inside for just one more beer and then it was time for us to say goodbye.

Steph and Sean thank you from the bottom of our hearts for inviting us up to your cottage and being your incredibly awesome selves for your beautiful Parry Sound cottage engagement session.
