I’ve known Steve for at least five years now…I met him through my husband, so probably more if you count the time that Carman I dated before we got married! Steve is in the dairy business like us, so we cross paths fairly regularly at the various shows and industry events.
*Side Note* He was also part of the Dairy Sen$e Class of 2010… and he will NEVER let me forget this as we used a photo of some of the participants on the cover of our magazine at work…only Steve was not in the photo we selected…Sorry Steve! Haha
Anyways, for all of years I have known Steve…I was still surprised when he called me about setting up some engagement photos! How did I NOT know he had a girlfriend…let a lone a fiancée?! Crazy!
Turns out Steve and Amy have been dating for four years! These two love birds have been toughing it long-distance for the majority of their relationship (hence the reason I have never crossed paths with Amy!), while Amy works as a nurse North of Toronto and Steve farms here in good old Brant County.
I met up with the two of them on their farm for their engagement session. The farm has fields (obviously!), rail fence, cows, horse stables, old trucks, tractors, hay bales, dogs, a pond…all of the elements that this country girl and photographer LOVES for a photo shoot! Despite the ridiculous heat that day, I was loving it…and these two self-proclaimed “non-photogenic” people certainly brought their A game and rocked the shoot!! They were even joined by Steve’s last 4-H calf (now a full grown cow) and their two cute and spunky dogs for some of the photos.
We had lots of fun and lots of laughs and I hope now that Amy will be marrying into the County, we will see her a little more often! No more of this 4 year business!
Check out some of my favourites from their country e-session!
