We had a super adventurous and exciting Elora Gorge Engagement Session with Cherry & Ben. It was our first time shooting an Elora Gorge Engagement Session and visiting Irvine Creek… and the wait was worth it! We were so grateful that these two were willing to make the trek to Elora (25km north of Guelph), which was just under a 2 hour drive for them.
Cherry & Ben were great to work with. They came prepared super prepared for their Elora Gorge Engagement Session, including brining a towel, perfect water shoes, and two outfits for a little look change half way through the shoot. We started off at Irvine Creek and headed down the staircase, along the “Lover’s Leap” trail. At the bottom is the creek and variety of stunning views. The best part of this spot is that you can walk across the river to capture all the various angles, which are all equally awesome. It’s a lot of fun to trek around, although a bit terrifying carrying around an expensive camera 🙂
After finishing up at Irvine Creek, we headed to the Elora Quarry swimming hole. They were just about to close their doors but let us in to capture a few shots! We were all in awe at the view from the top of the cliffs looking down. Check them out for yourself below! The Elora Quarry is an abandoned limestone quarry encircled by cliffs up to 40 feet high.
The Elora Gorge is one of the most beautiful backdrops in the Grand River valley. The Grand River rushes past 22-metre high cliffs, riverside trails, bridges, and scenic overlooks when hikers can watch kayakers make their way through the rapids. The river and surrounding parks offer hiking, tubing adventures, a splash pad, sport fields, swimming, fishing, zip lining, camping, kayaking and more… all surrounded by so much beauty. This place is an amazing day trip for anyone looking for a day in the nature, relaxing or being adventurous!

We wish Cherry & Ben all the best with their wedding in Cuba in January!
