Gorgeous Fiona contacted me last fall about her 2014 wedding to her fiancee Roman (Ray). They’ve got a great little bundle of joy named Ava who’s already walking and has mommy’s eyes. Fiona’s other pride and joy in her life is her teen daughter Alyssa. You would think they were sisters from Fiona’s facebook photos – as it’s clear their relationship is fantastic.
Fiona and Ray initially met three years ago at a church function. Ray had taken notice of Fiona and had been so impressed, he turned to his friend Paul and said “There is the woman I am going to marry.” They were friends for some time, going on coffee & chocolate dates together and simply enjoying each other’s company before Fiona began to develop the kind of feelings that brought them together. What really cemented things for her involved one of Ray’s passions in life – being on the water and sailing his boat. You should know Fiona gets white-knuckled anytime boats are in the mix. The day Ray took Fiona out though, his calm, confident manner put her at ease and they ended up having a wonderful time. Fiona shared with me that it was Ray’s inner strength and joy for life’s experiences that won her love during their early days together. As for Ray, her intimated to me that Fiona’s warm, easy smile, kind heart and wonderful manner attracted him from the start, not to mention how pretty she is of course!
So this spring we just had to take advantage of the spring blossoms for their engagement photos. I took them out to a secret spot in the niagara region for a private shoot where they could feel comfortable and be themselves. I can’t tell you how happy I am with the photos. Truth be told though, when you get a couple like this it’s so easy to capture their love, and capture it we did!
