Photographing Jessica and Michael’s engagement session felt like a true adventure. I took the ferry to PEI and these two kindly picked me up on the other side. We went to the beach, played in the water, visited a historic village and stood in not one but four fields: wheat, oat, corn and soybean. Funnily enough, we didn’t find ourselves in a potato field which is odd since we were in PEI after all! All our field tromping suited Jessica & Michael to a tee because they both grew up on farms. I tried to impress them with my (very limited) farm knowledge. I don’t think it worked, haha.
The thing I love about these two is that laughter seems to come to them as naturally as leaves to a tree. Jessica smiles with her whole being and has a light-heartedness about her that makes you feel instantly at ease. Michael counters that with a certain air of steadfastness but don’t let first impressions fool you. There’s a twinkle in his eye and easy laughter is always close at hand. We were only together for a few hours but there’s no doubt in my mind that Jessica and Michael are a perfect match.
