Katherine & Raff were recently engaged on a quiet Saturday morning outside one of their favourite downtown spots, District Café. They walked over for their regular weekend coffee where he took a knee and told her it seemed fitting to propose at the same location he first knew he loved her... They had sat across from each other on a date about 6 weeks in, at one of these very tables we went back to on the night of this shoot, and it was there he had known she was it for him.
I have the great fortune of knowing these two personally and I loved capturing the magic that is their love. Katherine is my ever-captivating best friend. We did the better part of our "single years" together which included hours of laughs, occasional tears, pints of IPA's or vino in hand as we navigated the chronicles of our dating lives... some disasters, disappointments, hopefuls that later fell short... and then Raff came along. He was unexpected and refreshing and completely redefined her version of love. These two are about to embark on a wild ride planning their magnificent Italian Catholic wedding next fall... but that is only the beginning of the life they now share and will continue to redefine together... vita mia.
