We had an amazing time with Farah & Dakota at their Adamson Estate Engagement Session! These two were so sweet, laid back and in love… they were just so easy to photograph. We knew they would be awesome as soon as we heard their adorable love story! Hearing them tell it in person is the best, but we’ve shared a snippet below, written by Farah, for you to enjoy as well.
“Dakota and I had our first date at the Winston Park Cineplex Plaza. We had a quick lunch earlier in the day and then, at night, we went mini putting. Afterwards, we were walking past the theatre and I asked if he wanted to see a movie, and he said “yeah what do you want to see?”. I said “Guardians of the Galaxy” (September 19 2014). He stopped, looked at me, and said “I love you”. This was a first date so of course I burst out laughing and he started back peddling saying “I just really want to see that movie and everyone’s seen it already”. Longest and best first date ever! Two days later, he asked me to be his girlfriend and I said yes (September 21, 2014) and I can’t wait to say “I do” exactly four years later on September 21, 2018.
Dakota proposed during the final credits of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, on opening night (May 4th 2017). He had all our friends and family rush into the theatre for the proposal. It was perfect.”
We’re so glad to have had the chance to capture the love these two share and can’t wait for their big day next September!!
We love Adamson Estate Engagement Sessions. Adamson Estate is definitely one of the best spots to take photos in the west end of the GTA. The 300 acre park features a beautiful Belgian style mansion, gardens, forests, views of Lake Ontario and a barn. There is something for everyone! Our favourite backdrop is the mansion. It makes for the perfect backdrop for romantic and elegant engagement photos.
Adamson Estate was designed and built in 1919 by an influential Toronto man who married into the Cawthra family. The mansion is of Colonial Revival and Flemish (Northern Belgium) architecture. Today, Adamson Estate is a public park and campus for the Royal Conservatory of Music.
