Amanda and Alex met up with me at Victoria Park in Truro for their engagement photos on a beautiful Autumn day. By that, I mean a cold day which saw flurries in the air just before our session. Yes, flurries, in mid October. So it was a little cold while we waked through the park, but Amanda and Alex kept smiling. Maybe that was because of each other, or maybe their adorable puppy Maisie played a role. I can’t speak for them, but Maisie won me over. Sorry guys, I just have a soft spot for puppies, especially when they’re adorable.
We walked through the park, making stops along the way to the waterfall, which we weren’t expecting to be raging judging by how quiet the stream was. Unfortunately the waterfall didn’t surprise us, but you know what did? The pair of deer we encountered on our walk back down the path. They were pretty calm with us being so close, and while we didn’t try to get right up beside them or anything, but I did manage to capture one photo with the deer in the background, and it was nice to see the deer just going about their business peacefully.
By the end of our session we all had gotten a bit of a chill, especially Maisie who was shivering. Don’t worry, we didn’t keep her out the whole time. Alex’s mom was kind enough to come along and puppy sit, and took her to the car to warm up when she started getting chilly. It’s definitely a good idea to have someone come along to watch your dog if you’re planning on having a dog as a part of your photo session, so it was good thinking on the part of Amanda and Alex.
Here’s a little look at our time at Victoria Park in Truro. It’s not long now to their big day and I’m sure that February day will make this October one look like summer.
