Caitlin and Saaqib met playing soccer many years ago, and one of their first dates was at the Museum of Nature – so it was fitting when Cait suggested it as a location for their engagement session. I adore the architecture and spaces around it, so we explored and made some magic!
This was my first session back after my very short mat leave, and I was definitely a little nervous to get back into the swing of things while Zach was only 8 weeks old! Turns out I had nothing to worry about, because I am pretty sure Cait and Saaqib are actually undercover professional models. The day threatened rain (doesn’t it always in this city?) but it held off and we had a truly fun time. It’s not always you meet two people who clearly know how to have fun together, they didn’t stop laughing and it was infectious!
We really wanted to catch the magnolia’s and even though there were only a few in bloom, we made it work! I love how perfectly the theme of this session ended up pairing with Cait’s custom engagement ring – something you have to see for yourself in this post, it is stunning.
I can’t wait to spend two wedding days with you soon! Enjoy this magnolia filled ottawa engagement session.
