Relationships and marriage are about give and take, forgiving and forgetting and finding the good in one another and then letting that person shine. In the words of Wilfred A. Peterson “It is not only marrying the right partner, it’s being the right partner.”
Chris & Anne Marie fell in love as kids, and then again just a few years ago. When they asked us to do something creative for their Toronto engagement photo shoot, we of course were game for anything they had in mind, but this idea they came up with was not the first thing that came to our minds. Actually Anne Marie and Chris knew all along what they wanted to do, and what they didn’t want for their engagement session. Couples who have known one another as long as Chris and Anne Marie, tend to have a unique outlook on relationships.
For their engagement photos they wanted to showcase the opposite of their real life relationship, and really stage scenes that would shock their friends and family. So the 4 of us came up with a storyline for a series of photos where Anne Marie and Chris would repeatedly try to kill one another in freak household accidents,and sneaky revenge plots. Only a couple who possesses a great deal of love and respect for one another could ‘execute’ such a shoot. You have to have a twisted sense of humour to enjoy these photos. For us, this shoot was so much fun, I am still laughing as I remember us all squeezing into the bathroom with Ryan hugging the toilet to get one of the shots below. Well worth it!
To our nearly dead and nearly wed clients, thank you for such a fun shoot. Your wedding will be to die for!
Erika & Ryan
