Caledonia Ontario Canadian Summer Engagement Portraits

Caledonia Ontario Canadian Summer Engagement Portraits

Amelia Ballak and her family are some of my most favorite people in the world. We first joined this wonderful family over 7 years ago for Christmas and we now count them as some of our closest friends. We initially met over our mutual love of Barbet (French Water Dogs) and now our friendship goes way past the canines. Despite them living 8 hours away in Canada, they’ve adopted this awkward ginger into their family. I even named the first Barbet pup we kept after this amazing young woman.  Jonathan, Amelia’s adorable fiance, met Amelia a few years later and we have gotten to know him at many visits and a few dog shows along the way. Now, Amelia is engaged to Jonathan and I couldn’t be MORE excited to take part in their celebrations.

While at some of our favorite dog shows in Canada this past summer, I was able to sneak in their summer engagement portraits in Caledonia. These two couldn’t be more adorable. I can not wait for their Canadian wedding next fall!

Q+A with Amelia and Jonathan:

Amelia: We met at my brother’s baseball game. Jonathan knew someone else on the team and we were introduced. But we really got to know each other through our church youth group, and through mutual friends.
Amelia: Jonathan picked me up to go mini golfing. We are both quite competitive so it was a pretty serious match. The game ended in a tie. We still have the score card from that day.

Jonathan: I planned the proposal back in February based on Toronto Bluejays tickets I purchased; The date was June 12. We went from the game to center island which is a tradition for us. I had Amelia look out to the skyline while I set up my camera to take a picture and when she turned around I was on one knee. It made for a great photo.

Amelia: I was not expecting him to propose at all that day. Here I was looking out to the skyline and mumbling under my breath that it was getting too cold and windy for a photo. It was perfect, simple and us.
Wedding plans: We’re planning the wedding for September 2017 in our home town of Waterloo, ON.  We’re hoping to keep it simple and fun for friends and family.
