Lakeshore of Barrie Engagement Session

Ronnie & Tara

by Ryan Rowell on June 27, 2016

The more we photograph our home town of Barrie, Ontario, the more romantic it feels to us. A few nights ago I was walking our dog by the lake just after sunset along the lakeshore. As the street lights started to turn on and the shadows of night started to creep in. I realized an air of romance about the city I never felt before. Still bustling with couples strolling along the boardwalk, teenagers hanging out in the park, and families enjoying ice cream. I felt like I was in Europe, the positive vibes were everywhere. I could recall nights that felt like this one in Rome, Paris, Athens and Croatia. I’m excited to photograph more of Barrie this summer, in a whole new light.

One of the photo shoots that has renewed my love for Barrie is the latest engagement session photographed by the one and only Luca. A few weeks ago we all met up with Tara & Ronnie for their Barrie engagement session on the lake. What I love about this session is that it took place in just one general area, keeping it so simple yet so stunningly beautiful. The whole Rowell Photography team hung out on this shoot. Its not too often that we all get to shoot together, but since the location was just a few blocks from our place, we decided to go watch Luca in action. This Barrie engagement session is definitely one of my all time faves from Luca.

Congratulations to Tara & Ronnie on your engagement and upcoming wedding!
