late summer elora gorge engagement session

I feel like I say this every single time I shoot somewhere new, but HOW did I not know this place existed? I shot a wedding a few years back in Elora and remember driving over this bridge, thinking nothing of another overpass. When Amy sent me photos of where she wanted to shoot, I was floored. I couldn't believe I'd never explored this area and all it had to offer! Amy, John, and I spent a wonderful, warm summer's evening with our feet in the water while I photographed their love. You'd never know it, but these two are actually married! Amy entered a contest I held on instagram for a chance to win a couple's photoshoot, and I'm so glad that my random software name picker decided to choose hers! A word to the wise, there is a parking lot and a set of stairs to reach the gorge. Don't be like us out of towners and force yourself into an excruciating hike through thick brush full of ticks and some seriously brutal humidity when you could just use the stairs. Seriously. Despite the ordeal, these two were troopers and we decided the location was one hundred percent worth it.
