Back To The County
Find out why Toronto wedding photographer Jessilyn Wong followed this adorable couple back to Prince Edward County for their engegment photos.
“We had been together for six and a half years before getting engaged. Our story began after meeting in school, as we were both in the same residence. As friends we stayed up late sometimes until the sun rose just talking about aspirations & goals, and dreaming about where our lives would take us. Conversation came very easy between us, and it was then that we were meant to be together. We had times in our relationship where we had to be apart for long periods of time, but managed to keep a strong relationship nonetheless. Now we live together downtown Toronto, convenient for us both to commute to work.
Prince Edward County would have been the ideal choice for our wedding location, as Amanda was born in the county and the majority of her family remains living in the area. We ended up finding our venue closer to Toronto, so it was evident that we needed to include the county in our engagement shoot. The area is becoming very popular with all of the new wineries, breweries, galleries, and restaurants popping up in the area.
Together we are encouraging and supportive of each other’s decisions in life, and it’s just so natural for us to help one another be the best versions of ourselves. We are so fortunate to have found the one person that makes our souls happy and our hearts whole.”
