Toronto photographers Julius and James bring us this Canadiana engagement session inspired by Gilles Vigneault lyrics, “My country is not a country. It’s winter.” The day did not disappoint, as the Valentine’s Day shoot was bitter cold long the shore of Lake Ontario. Couple Kelvin and Sarah braved the cold  so they could share a Canadian winter shoot with their friends and family in China.

We love the sweet concept behind this shoot. The classic fireside gooey treat of toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate shared with a loved one you will soon marry. Layered with some cozy fashions, the couple wore outfits from the iconic brands The Hudson Bay and Roots!

Did you pick a special location or theme for your engagement session?

We would love to hear about it!

    What a cute idea for an engagement photo shoot. I love the Hudson Bay Company blanket. It’s so Canadian.
