The tidy, contemporary Art Gallery of Hamilton provided an excellent backdrop for our couple to be surrounded by vivid color, beautiful art, and love.
This real-life couple shone brightly on set. Haylie and Sterling knew there was something between them before even coming face to face. Originally meeting over a shared interest in photography and exploration, the two shared a first date – and almost a first kiss – at Hamilton’s Tew’s Falls. Despite the missed kiss, the day sparked a natural and vibrant romance, as they felt like they had known each other for their whole lives.
Capturing the couple’s passion was easy, and to compliment it, a rich palette of turmeric yellows and oranges was chosen. Vivid, fresh florals, with playful and sculptural details brought a wonderful vivacity. Original art and hand-painted backdrop harmonized with the artful atmosphere and the urban setting of the AGH. Pairing this with modern-classic attire, and some clean vintage touches, Haylie and Sterling’s day simply glows.
