Jonathan & Eleanor Engagement | Stover Country Park

2020 has been a strange year to say the least. Many people's lives will never be the same. This will be a year that we look back on in the years to come and tell stories to our children and our grandchildren. Eleanor and Jonathan (he often goes by "Jof") found a way to turn this year into a year that they will look back on with wonderful memories for the rest of their lives, because this was the year that they decided to spend the rest of their lives together!


El is Jenna's youngest sister, so this session meant so much for her to be able to capture. Earlier this year, after Sam met Jof for the first time, he was speaking to Jen and told her that he would love to have Jof as a brother-in-law someday. Little did he know that Eleanor and Jonathan were already "interested" in each other! They began dating later in the year, and on El's birthday, Jonathan surprised her by asking her to be his wife, and she said yes!

When Eleanor told us about this location that she had found, we were bursting with excitement, it looked perfect! Because it is usually quite a busy park, we thought it would be best to do a sunrise session so that there would be less people around. On the day of the photo shoot, the weather was looking less than favourable and we were worried we wouldn't be able to capture the photos that we wanted. On the drive to the park it rained, the sun never came out because of the clouds, and there was a heavy fog that had set in. But despite the circumstances, the result was absolutely stunning! It turns out that the fog made these pictures even more beautiful, and we couln't be happier with the finished product.


The rain kept more people away, the clouds provided perfect lighting for photos, and the heavy fog created a very romantic setting. This sunrise engagement photo shoot was simply dreamy! It really reflected Eleanor and Jonathan's relationship. Despite the less than perfect circumstances this year, they have created something beautiful in the midst of it all.


El and Jof, we are SO happy for you both! Congratulations on your engagement, and to a life filled with many happy memories. Both of you are very sincere Christian people, and we pray God's blessings upon your marriage. Thank you for letting us capture this special moment in your lives!
