Friday Photos - Engagement Photos

When we were at the cottage for Canada Day I had the opportunity to take some informal engagment photos of my eldest son, Malcolm, and his fiance, Christie.  They smiled and smiled and willingly posed in all the spots I had sussed out, and were good sports about being bossed around.

The first three are my favourites.  

This photo was snapped when Malcolm offered to give Christie a piggy-back ride because her barefeet were sore from walking on the rocks.

Christie is so photogenic - I think there was only one photo where she had her eyes shut.  It bodes well for the wedding photos!

These next two I tried to give a retro cottage sun-washed look using Picnik.

This last photo I included just for fun.  We were all joking around.

I have to say it was difficult choosing my favourite ones.  It was a fun photo-shoot.


Just a reminder to check out my summer giveaway, which is on until July 13th.


  1. Wow! You did an awesome job Grace! They are all lovely and I would have a hard time choosing my fav too. What a cute couple and the setting for the photos is perfect!

  2. These are wonderful photos and they look so young and happy. They are a lovely couple and I wish them much joy and love in their life together.


  3. What great photos! I love those on the dock but the 4th one is my favorite. Could you do a larger version of your photo collages with these? It would be great framed and hung in their new home when they get married. That would be special since all of those pictures are soooo good.

  4. Congratulations .... beautiful pictures to capture a happy occasion.

  5. I love the photo of their backs side by side at the end of the dock. So sweet!

  6. Great photos, the piggy back is so much fun, like love should be easy and natural.

  7. What great photographs! I especially like the 4th and 7th ones. Congrats to the newly engaged couple.


  8. The last one may be my favorite - I'm a huge fan of unexpected expressions.

    Lovely, lovely work!

  9. Great photos! I wish hubby and I had more, especially when we were younger ;) My favourites are the two on the dock and the first one by the tree.

  10. Grace, what wonderful photos, they certainly do look like they are very much in love and so happy!

  11. I just happened upon your blog today, via Little Red House and I've enjoyed visiting. I loved your Canada Day post with a picture from each province! I may need to do that next year - thanks for the inspiration. Hope your summer is going well and you are getting things checked off your list :))

  12. Congrats on the engagement of your son! Great job on the photos. My favourites are the two on the dock. Have fun and enjoy your time with them, it goes by to quickly.

  13. Nicely done + warm congratulations! Grace, they look so well and happy together, you must be thrilled! And wow, she certainly is photogenic. Thanks for sharing these -- I cannot WAIT to see what follows for these two :)

    Wishing you a splendid weekend,


  14. Fabulous photos Grace. You've captured their happiness really well. I particularly love the last one. Congratulations to them both. I hope they have a very long, loving and happy life together xx
