Each year city-girl Cara would pack up her dorm room, adamant that she would never return to St. Stephen's University, or to small town New Brunswick, ever. But every every year Cara would return because Love ultimately had a much different plan in mind!! During the fall of Cara's final year Noah was visiting his family in St. Stephen when their paths crossed for the first time and by the following July Noah had planned the perfect engagement and asked Cara to be his wife while they were dining on cheese and wine on a Paris rooftop patio.! Their love story has been whirlwind, and full of long-distance phone calls as they have spent more time apart than together, however everyone that knows these two knows without a doubt that the chapters of their lives were always meant to create one beautiful love story.
Cara and Noah will be married in Toronto this August, but Cara emailed me a few weeks ago to see if I was available to shoot some engagement photos for them in Saint Andrews while they were home visiting Noah's family. She really wanted engagement photos East Coast engagement photos because this is where Noah is from and where they met and fell in love. We set out to plan "the perfect Saint Andrews day," which included a walk about town, fish and chips at the Red Herring Pub, Picaroons beer, ice cream, a gorgeous New Brunswick sunset, and a diusky walk on the beach.
I love the creativity of this engagement session. But what I adore is the infectious joy and adoration for each other that Cara and Noah exude!
One last thought... Cara and Noah's love story is indicative of many things, but one worth mentioning: never say "never."
Thank you Red Herring.. and especially to Emma for the great service!!
Love & Sunshine,
