An afternoon with Melissa and Rian {Peterborough wedding photographer}

We spent a lovely, sunny afternoon with Melisa and Rian. I actually found their location by accident - I passed it on the way to another place, and stopped in to ask permission on a whim. The barn that I had seen from the road was just the beginning - the property had a beautiful wide open field, and a completely abandoned farm house with some of the best retro wallpaper I've ever seen. Needless to say, we had fun!

The details we found in this farm yard were fabulous! Melissa and Rian were up for anything, which made for some awesome images. The light in this field was so, so beautiful. Absolutely perfect!









Did I not promise the best wallpaper ever?



A fitting end to a great day!


Thanks, Melissa and Rian! We had a wonderful time with you both, and we are so looking forward to your wedding in July!

These are absolutely lovely. We were so disappointed with our weeding photographs - despite asking repeatedly for candids and action shots what we got back were all stiff formal posed ones - these folks having nothing to fear. The photos are beautiful and I am especially fond of the one where they are sitting on the gate.

Jordan, as per usual your photos are spectacular and the location phenomenal! Note to mention the couple is rather adorable in every picture :) My little LEC heart is smiling

Hi Melissa and Rian,

The photos are great!! I especially love the outdoor photos because of the bright sunshine and the nature scenery. My favourite picture is the one in the field with the two of you looking at each other!

Absolutely wonderful pictures. I think my favourite is the one of Melissa looking back at Rian. Although it is hard to really pick a favourite.

All the photographs are good. I especially like the one of them kissing each other.

Simply Stunning Pictures. I love them all. My favourite(s) however happen to be the one where they are kissing on the gate and second the one where he is holding her up and they are kissing in the field. I can only imagine how beautiful your wedding pictures are going to be! Congrats to you both!

Laura Edge said...

Amazing photos!!! These are the best engagement photos I've ever seen! Your wedding photos I'm sure will be magazine worthy too!

We have seen alot of engagement photos and these are the best yet. You can see the happiness, love and laughter Melissa and Rian share. Can't choose just one!

Stephen said...

Hey I liked all the Pictures Jason Thanks for making my Sister and Rian look so good. I hid in fear when I saw the one on the tub with that look on Melissa's face. It reminded me of being her little brother.
