Is it bad that sometime I use the engagement sessions on SMP as a way to scout out killer outfits? It’s not? Ok, good. Take this couple for instance, I’m pretty sure I want everything this Bride-to-be is wearing, and her soon to be hubby doesn’t look so shabby either. But the best thing these two are wearing are the smiles in every single image captured by Wendy Alana, and you can see every stylish moment of the shoot here.

From Wendy Alana PhotographyElissa and Nick showed up to their engagement session dressed to kill. They had multiple outfits, great attitudes and wanted to incorporate both urban buildings and the romantic dusk light that we have become known for. They also wanted to incorporate their deceased grandparents, honouring each one lost with a balloon. Italian in heritage, their families are extremely close.

We started their shoot in downtown Niagara on the lake, incorporating some buildings and the gazebo by the water. We then headed to Niagara Botanical gardens where Nick first proposed to Elissa, but first stopping at an abandoned field in between wineries for some beautiful golden hour photos. We can’t wait to capture their summer wedding in 2014!
