It’s always great to work close to home and Riverdale Park was a perfect spot for both myself and for Jessica and Patrick to do their engagement photography.
The original plan was to start at Toronto’s Riverdale Farm where Jessica and Patrick had their first date but the gates closed just as we got there. We didn’t let that get us down and walked around Riverdale Park West and East and enjoyed one of the last awesome fall days of 2012.
“oh by the way, will you marry me?” That’s how Patrick (who met Jessica after joining a mutual friends soft ball team) proposed after picking Jessica up from her brothers for Christmas. He hid the ring amoungst the Christmas presents he had for her. Apparently the only romantic part of the proposal despite being a rather romantic kind of guy. Nerves, that is what Jessica said to me, she thinks it got the best of him. He cracked under pressure I guess you can say.
Reminds me of my own proposal.
Jessica and Patrick are having a winter wedding and no not a destination wedding in the Caribbean. Nope, not these two, they’re having a good old fashion winter wedding right here in Toronto, in the middle of February! I’m looking forward to it and we all hope it actually snows too!
