Land & Sea | with Nick Parry

We're head over heels for this session from Nick Parry of Ontario-based Nautical Studios. Nick managed to fit a forest theme, fields, and boats into an adorable engagement session. His use of light and negative space makes these photos dynamic and intriguing. We're so excited to share these with you!

When Jess, Tim, and myself were trying to figure out a spot for their engagement shoot they had the idea of doing it at their family cottage in Chatsworth. So, they invited me, Lindsay, and Oats up for the weekend where we shot, ate, and politely waved at mennonites (tip: do not take photo’s of mennonites).

The first night we we didn’t all arrive until about 8:00pm but decided to trek out and see what we could find anyways. We ended up crossing a huge dirt field (I’m assuming some sorta…farm thing) and came up to an eerie but beautiful looking forest that backed onto a small lake. While we only had about 20 minutes to shoot that night they ended up being some of my favourites. The whole weekend was incredible and definitely a much needed challenge, I loved every moment of it.

I am a husband to a yarn addict and father to a 1-year-old who is currently painting his face with spaghetti sauce. When I’m not behind the camera I can be found skateboarding around (poorly), watching Titanic, or eating donuts (or just eating in general).
