Annabelle and Brad. Oh gosh, these two made me laugh. They have one of the most contagious laughs and an amazing relationship. They chose to do a Dundurn Castle Engagement session. This is because it is close by but also because of its epic views and historic vibe. They absolutely love retro- which is definitely a part of their personality but they also are a bit of two nerdy geeks with a love of Star Wars. So their engagement session location was perfect, and also the perfect background for that Star Wars image that they wanted me to create.

I love to photoshop. Creating new images from nothing and making some dreams a reality for some couples is something I enjoy. And that was the case for these two and one of my selling points for them. Being able to create a scene that was straight out of Star Wars in Dundurn Castle. And me being such a fan…well I couldn’t resist.

Dundurn Castle is located in Hamilton on York Blvd! It is a very short distance from wedding venues like the Spice Factory and The Lakeview. This venue is free for engagement sessions and family sessions, however, there is a permit required for wedding photography of any kind whether just the couple or your entire wedding party. This place can get a bit busy in the summer so plan ahead and book your permit ahead of time.

The historical mansion was built in 1835 and now acts as a public park. Entry into the mansion is at a cost, however you may roam the property at no cost. The property itself is massive and has lots of great spots and angles for photos including hills, various buildings, rows of trees and barn. Definitely a great place for photos with a vintage vibe!
