Now this is what a nice fall day in Sault Ste. Marie is supposed to be. Cool wind, warm sun and great colours on the the trees. The other benefit to this shoot (for them anyway) is that Sarah and Steve knew how to read a weather forecast.
This is the part of my writeup where I go “VH1: Behind the
Music Photography” on you. Sarah and Steve were originally scheduled to have their engagement shoot when Jenn and AJ had theirs but decided to see what the weather was going to be like first. When they saw dropping temperatures and the chance for rain/snow/hail/abominable snowmen they rescheduled leaving the date open for Jenn and AJ who were going to be in the Sault for the weekend. I actually ran into Steve later on the night of Jenn and AJ’s shoot and he just shook his head when I told him that I was out in the weather doing a shoot.
Steve’s daughter Sarah joined us for the first half of the shoot. We started the shoot at Kinsmen Park / Hiawatha Highlands trying to find locations that I hadn’t used yet which led us on to some paths into the treed areas. From there Steve, Sarah and myself went to the newest section of the hub trail here in Sault Ste. Marie located just down the road from Sault College. We finished off the shoot in the Sault’s downtown core using some of the brightly painted buildings as backdrops.
I’m looking forward to the wedding next year guys!
