Engagements

Clarissa + Tristan met when they were both going to school at the University of Guelph. Years later, they moved to a new town to start their dream careers during a pandemic, and after some rescheduling, they’re finally just a couple of months from their wedding day!

Since they met while they were in university, the arboretum on campus was the perfect location for their engagement session. Plus, they were able to bring their dog, which was an important addition to the session :) (I’m not sure if Guelph arboretum weddings are a thing – but they should be! This place is so gorgeous!)

Take a look at some of my favourites, and read more about Clarissa and Tristan’s story in their own words, below…
