Shannon & Brandon - Winter Engagement Shoot, Hamilton

March 10, 2015  •  2 Comments

On the day of Shannon & Brandon's engagement shoot, it was snowing. Like, a lot. But nonetheless, they showed up at Cherry Hill Gate at the RBG to meet Mike and make their way into the woods. The results turned out so lovely, with the snow swirling around them and Shannon's fantastically bright red coat, I just love it. But the best part was that at this particular spot, the chickadees are extremely social and friendly and they were more than happy to indulge themselves in a mid-winter buffet on Shannon and Brandon's shoulders. The even better part about this? Shannon is a Ph.D student in Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience who is currently studying chickadees. How completely perfect is that?! :) Here are some of my very favourites!

I found this one hilarious. It looks like the bird on the left is going, "oh Brandon, it's beautiful! You shouldn't have!" (But Shannon informs me that they are in fact actually fighting over the seeds)
