They told me they had never modeled before, but from these pictures, I would swear they both have had long and successful careers as models!
Kirsten, Shadi and I met for their engagement session a few weeks ago and we drove to downtown Ottawa for the shoot. I love shooting in downtown Ottawa because there are so many different places to photograph in that look so different – it makes for a very diverse session.
Kirsten and Shadi are the best kind of people, in my mind. They are fun and sarcastic while still being so geniune. The two have the most amazing bond and just emanate love for each other which I think is so wonderful.
Currently, Kirsten is living in Calgary, while Shadi is in Ottawa. I don’t know how they do it – I miss Thomas if he’s working for the evening (I know, I’m completely lame! haha). These two have such an amazing connection that even though it’s difficult, I know that they’ll pull through it. Kirsten is moving back soon and I know they are counting the days.
Then they will be counting the days until their wedding! I, for one, cannot wait to spend the day documenting their wedding and I am so honoured that they chose me to be their wedding photographer. Their wedding is in October and all three of us are excited about the photos having a completely different feel than their Spring-green engagement pictures. Everyone keep your fingers crossed for beautiful fall colours in early October this year!
Kirsten and Shadi, I hope you love your photos as much as I loved taking them. And thank you for telling me what public water fountains are really used for…. *shudders*
And without further adieu, may I present; Kirsten and Shadi in love (and also, who I am convinced are secret models).
Shadi designed Kirsten’s engagement ring which is so amazing.
Shadi had been working earlier that day, finishing up laying the pavement in this parking garage. We thought it would be fun to take a few shots down there, not only to capture their relationship, but to document his awesome pavement laying skills!
Shadi has an amazing car. Now I am by far the worlds least educated person on the subject of cars, but I know when one is smoking hot, and this car is smoking hot! Almost as smokin as the two posing with it!
Have a wonderful day,
