UofT Engagement Session

Even though the University of Toronto takes up a massive chunk of the downtown core, most people skirt around it instead of venturing through campus. Hopefully this UofT engagement session will inspire you to seek out one of the most beautiful locations in the city.

Before I picked up a camera, and way before I photographed my first wedding, I was a political science major and student journalist at this lovely school. I loved (almost) every minute of it. Nothing gave me greater joy that walking through its archways and past its stone columns, in between Parliamentary Democracy and European Union Policy classes, books in hand.

So I was thrilled when Queenie and Sonny requested that they do their engagement session at my own alma mater. And it helps when you know all the best spots.

The Location

There’s really no shortage of places to shoot if you’re doing a UofT engagement session. We started at the iconic Hart House, which has beautiful stone hallway interiors, and gothic exteriors.

Then we ventured over to University College that has the most beautiful courtyard, and to Knox College which has the oh-so-pretty ribbed vaults which make for great engagement photos, or any photos really.

And no UofT engagement session would be complete without a trip over to Victoria College, for the archway.

The Couple

“Don’t worry, we’re a super PDA kinda couple,” they said to me.

I didn’t have to do much to get these two to be affectionate. A few little posing tips, and they just went with it. It makes my job easy when couples leave any sort of embarrassment or shyness at the door, and just have fun with their engagement shoot. You only get to do it once, so you may as well enjoy yourselves!

The location made sense, as they live just around the corner, and are both highly educated.

There’s no doubt Queenie and Sonny are super in love! I mean c’mon, look at these photos.
