Finding a beautiful, yet quiet location for an engagement session is so important if you are looking to really capture intimate photos with the beauty of the world – without all the buildings, businesses and people – all around. That is why this session in Port Hope Ontario, photographed by Samantha with Samantha Ong Photography, was such a perfect spot for Tomomi and Benson to have their engagement photos.
Port Hope, a small town in Ontario, is a heritage community situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario and offers both an urban and rural combination. The Ganaraska River runs right through the heart of the town and there are miles of waterfront trails, a beach and scenic country driving routes.
Here is what Samantha had to say about her experience photographing the couple during this Port Hope engagement session:
“Tomomi and Benson enjoy taking on new adventures outdoors together and also love space. One of their most memorable adventures together was when they went to NASA’s shuttle launch in Florida. In order to capture the essence of their relationship, we ventured over to Port Hope, a beautiful small town in Ontario, Canada where we could enjoy the beautifully lit sky without any light pollution. We found a wide open field and waited around until sun-down to see the stars. We were lucky as there were no clouds but stunning shiny stars. We knew that there would be no better scene than to capture Tomomi & Benson under the star-lit sky.”
“If I had to describe this couple myself, I would say they are absolutely fun-loving and adorable! I loved the way Tomomi danced around Benson with such joy and vitality for life while Benson watched her in absolute adoration. Although it has been seven years since they first met, with just one look at each other they can still very easily make each other laugh and smile. When I look at these photos, I remember the way I felt when I photographed this shoot in Port Hope, Ontario. There was so much love, care and happiness which filled the air, even in this wide open field.”
